Magnetic letters sorting mats support early stages of learning the alphabet. Letter knowledge is supported through recognition and identification of many different attributes of upper- and lowercase letters. This product would be great as an independent literacy work station for students, partner work, or even during small group. These sorting mats can be used as a quick assessment of a variety of different skills, such as distinguishing between upper- and lowercase letters, identification of vowels and consonants, and recognition of letters in students’ names.
***Edit: This product has been updated with a sheet of uppercase letters and a sheet of lowercase letters for use with these sorting mats. Just print, cut, and laminate for unlimited use if you don't have access to magnetic letters! :)
The following classifications are included in this product:
1. Uppercase vs. lowercase
2. Vowels vs. consonants
3. Tall vs. short
4. Curvy vs. straight
5. Tail vs. no tail
6. Holes vs. no holes
7. Dots vs. no dots
8. In my name vs. not in my name
9. BONUS editable sorting mat! Fill-in option available in PDF for your personal use. A suggestion for the editable mat option is to sort magnetic letters by various colors available to the students. (Note: Font used for the two fill-ins of the editable sorting mat is AG SorryNotSorry, and there is one mat with two sides for sorting. Link to this font can be found on product credits page.)
