Beginning Sound Alphabet Mats | Building Phonemic Awareness Skills


Designed with early learners in mind, this Science of Reading aligned resource is perfect for young children learning to orally identify the initial sound letters make. 

Ready to print to A4, each mat focuses on a single letter and phoneme (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 centre even easier! 

Display each mat on your interactive whiteboard to help introduce a new sound or recap an already taught sound.




Here's what's included -

  • 26 full page mats included for every letter of the alphabet (editable upper+lower case letter displayed in center surrounded by pictures to differentiate between to match beginning sound - 1 letter per A4 page
  • 26 answer pages with each matching word accompanied by the image plus cover to create flipbook from (editable text = change the font to your choice) - 2 per A4 page

What programs do I need to open and use this product?

I recommend using Adobe Acrobat Reader to open any PDF files. Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free program and can be downloaded here.

To use our editable resources, you will need to have Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer to open and edit these resources. If you don't have PowerPoint, you can access a free trial of the program here.

Ensuring your software is up to date can help to avoid any compatibility issues.

What does it mean if a file is editable?

Our editable files allow you to change and customize the text so you can make it exactly what you want to fit your classroom. Simply type into the text boxes provided or add in your own to edit. You will need access to Microsoft PowerPoint to do this.

Editable does not mean all parts are moveable. Any included artwork, clip art, some fonts and other graphics are fixed to abide by copyright laws and cannot be edited or removed. Colours also used cannot be edited with the exception of coloured text.

If you want the text in the editable items to match the look of the ready to print decor, you may need to purchase and install some of the fonts. I've included information on the custom fonts used within the download along with a help sheet to make sure you’re getting the most from your purchase.

You can also use any fonts you already have to truly customize the look of your classroom!

Please read through the product description to check what can be edited and, if unsure, please message me.
