After children have tapped the call & response video for several weeks and they know the chart and sounds well, have them try tapping it straight through. They can do this alone or with a class.
Older readers who need to practice their short vowel sounds and other tricky sounds can use the 2nd chart instead of the 1st. Some teachers like to 'graduate' students from the 1st chart to the 2nd one as well.
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.
