Mr Thorne does Phonics
Mr Thorne Does Phonics is a comprehensive collection of over 200 literacy videos to support children, parents, teachers and anyone who is learning to read.
I first came across the ‘Mr Thorne’ videos on YouTube, and experienced the same issues using the videos at school as most other educational institutions will no doubt have experienced too – slow load times, or even blocked altogether by the school filtering program! I was excited to see on Twitter yesterday that Mr Thorne has been listening, and has moved his videos to a new, school friendly, site.
The Mr Thorne Does Phonics site is very simply, yet colourfully, designed. It is easy to navigate, and all videos are clearly marked.
Overall, a great site that has some short, but useful, videos to include in your classroom.
