“Every decoding is another encoding.” Visual memory goes hand in hand with the phonetic skills that a kid develops. This activity is to decide an encoding representation, form a
message and decode it. This project will illuminate, describe the skills, combinations of skills and level of skills that a kid can keep increasing periodically.
Encoding and Decoding is the science that is used to try to keep information secret and safe. The principle of encoding a message is to ensure that only the intended receiver understands the message. The children will not only decide the icon values but also, can have a partner and translate the message.
Animal and Bird Icons
White sheets of paper
Download the sheet for the icons:
Each icon of an animal or bird will represent an alphabet
On a sheet of paper, you will stick the icon and write the alphabet representation beside it - this will be the language for passing your secret messages
Now, on another sheet of paper, you will write a secret message - a word using just animal and bird picture icons
Give this secret message to your friend and ask him to decode this secret message
Developing decoding and encoding skills is essential for a solid understanding of reading
Decoding is the process of reading words in a text form
Encoding is the process of using letter knowledge to write
The manipulation that we learn while doing this project is a step in reading and writing
It makes the children understand how the letters work together to make words
