Finally, the Phonogram Dictionary is here! This is THE reference for the key spelling variations in English. Use this once the child knows all of the key sounds (green sandpaper letters) and begins asking for accurate spellings. When they are reading and come across a word with a spelling variation they do not recognize, they simply look for that variation on the tab, open to the corresponding page, and reveal the corresponding key sound.
Inspired by London AMI Trainer Muriel Dwyer, we offer the dictionary in several different formats. Choose the one that (1) matches your sandpaper letters and (2) is organized in the format you prefer (by key sound or alphabetically). Muriel Dwyer preferred that the dictionary be indexed by sound. The sound groupings mean that each time the child skims through the tabs, the spelling variations for the key sounds are reinforced.
Available dictionary formats are as follows:
- Cursive sandpaper letter reference, indexed and grouped by key sound (recommended)
- Cursive sandpaper letter reference, indexed alphabetically
- Print sandpaper letter reference, indexed and grouped by key sound
- Print sandpaper letter reference, indexed alphabetically
The Phonogram Dictionary can also be used as a control of error for the culminating activity ("the test") of the Phonogram Folders.
We include a set of pre-printed tabs in the dictionary ready for you to affix (the tabs are not pre-attached).
