Jelly and Bean (Follifoot) sequences

I found it helpful in using the Jelly and Bean (AKA “Follifoot”) phonics readers series to make my own charts showing the sequences of phonics targets (graphemes), vocabulary, and sight words. I also made notes to myself about when certain grammatical and spelling points popped up in the texts (in red text).
I am posting a PDF here of my charts in hopes that they may be of use to others who use the Jelly and Bean readers.
Note that some of the specifics may not align perfectly with how you view the reading series. For example, what qualify as sight words (in orange) will vary among teachers and programs, and among different points of progress within a program.
Note also that I purchased my readers some years ago, and there have since been some updates to the series. For example, what was called the “More Vowels” series is now called “English Vowels.” Much of it is the same as “More Vowels”, but some stories have been re-written, and there are some new stories. I am not familiar with all the changes.
Still, most of the series are unchanged (the last I checked), and I hope these charts might be of some utility to other users of these fine phonics readers.
