Use a call and response method for teaching the chart. Let the child practice using that method until the child knows the chart well enough to do it alone or all together as a whole class.
The child or class can begin learning this chart within a few months of starting the program. 3rd graders and up ideally have already been presented with these teams and this is review. Tapping the chart daily helps to move the sound/symbol connection into long-term memory which is an aid to reading and spelling.
