It is the vehicle for transitioning the child from sounds to letters. Its use is introduced once the child can comfortably read and write phrases.The Chart contains the pictures of all forty-four sounds arranged in the same rows and in the same order within each row as they are in the Stamping app. Beneath each sound picture are various ways that sound may be spelled. The spellings listed beneath each sound appear in order of frequency of occurrence in the words which beginning readers are most likely to encounter.Each of the spellings that appear beneath the sound pictures are color coded. The first spelling of each sound is coded white. If a second spelling is listed, it is coded yellow. Third spellings are red, fourth spellings are blue, fifth are green, sixth are brown, and seventh are purple. The color codings indicate to the child which spelling is to be used to write the letters for a word.The Decoding Chart does not contain all possible spellings for each sound. It does, however, contain the spellings that appear in ninety-five to ninety-eight percent of the words the child will encounter while learning to read and write.A parent guide to how to use the Decoding Chart is included in The Guide instructions for the Writing Worksheets.Two Apps and the Decoding Chart DownloadChart LevelsThe Decoding Chart-Levels app displays the chart in five different levels, each level matching one of the five levels of the Reading Program.Chart - FlipThe Decoding Chart-Flip app displays half the chart on one side and half on the other side of a flip view.DownloadWhile the Decoding Chart is available in two app formats and moving between apps is possible with a double-click of the Home button on the iPad, the double-clicking process may not be easily managed by the child.A more child-accessible version of the Decoding Chart can be downloaded from the Centers website and printed out.Decoding Chart Converts words in sounds to words in lettersIntroduced once the child can comfortably read phrasesAvailable in two different app formsAlso downloadable from the Centers websiteInstructions for its use are included in The Guides Writing Worksheet instructions
