Initial Sound Alphabet Mats
Designed with early readers in mind, these alphabet mats are perfect for young children learning the beginning letter sounds.
Ready to print to A4, each mat focuses on a single letter and sound. Surrounded by bright, fun images, children need to determine which word starts with the sound on the mat making them ideal for children who are familiar with the first 26 letter sounds and need to practice differentiating between beginning sounds in words.
Add counters to mark each choice before choosing a new mat. Answer cards have also been included to make using them as an independent center even easier!
Display each mat on your interactive whiteboard to help introduce a new sound or recap an already taught sound.

26 full page mats included for every letter of the alphabet (upper+lower case letter displayed in center surrounded by pictures to differentiate between to match beginning sound
26 answer pages with each matching word accompanied by the image plus cover to create flipbook from - 3 per A4 page
