I've been working on creating color covers for all of the Sound City Reading books, even the books that have all black print on the inside pages. This makes them look a lot more appealing, but it has been a time consuming process to redesign so many covers. To make things more difficult, I design them in Microsoft Publisher but must save the new file as a pdf file to share with others and the colors don't turn out exactly the same going from a Publisher to a PDF file. It takes a lot of time to tweak the colors going back and forth between the two types of files.
I'm anxious to get the covers finished because I want to use images of the covers, as well as images of a few of the inside pages, to create an overview of all the books in the Sound City Reading program, with a brief written explanation for each book. I'm adding this overview to a Sequence Charts book that I've created for my own use for many years. The book has the sequence charts for all the books in this program. It includes which patterns are taught and shows the order in which they are introduced, along with a list of phonetic words taught for that pattern and any related sight words. I realized not long ago that I need to add the Sequence Charts book to this site so that anyone who is using various parts of the program can benefit from it. I'm in the process of expanding the book to include a description with images for each book at each level. It always takes me much longer than I had hoped to complete projects like this. I'm anxious to finish soon and get the book posted for those of you who need it.

Hi :) I've used some of your material and enjoyed it. I am wondering where the "Sequence Charts" book that you mention, is listed. Thank you! Carrie

Hello, Carrie! I glad you enjoyed the material that you used. Unfortunately I still haven't finished the expanded sequence chart book with an overview of each book. I've made a lot of progress but it will be at least a couple of weeks longer, or more, before I get finished. I have all the color pictures of the covers and sample pages put together. Now I have to go through and finish writing a brief explanation for each of the books. If you click on the 1st heading on the green navigation bar at the top of the page, A Phonetic Reading Program, you'll see the link to the old sequence chart book without the added explanations and pictures. I do hope to get the newer book finished soon. Also, if you look under the same heading and click on Teaching Levels And Materials, you'll see a lot of the information that will be in the new book, including written overviews and sample pages. Thanks for asking!
