Thank you very much for viewing this set. It is a very simple set to prep. All you need to do is print on cardstock (I recommend in color) and laminate. Then cut out the letter cards and place each letter set into individual baggies. The mats are then ready to use. I usually pick around 5 letter mats and coordinating sets to sort at a time to avoid having the kiddos get overwhelmed with so much sorting at once, but that is entirely up to the user.
The set includes 26 sorting map and 26 letter pages.
