This alphabet mat is unique because it allows students to design their own! If your children are working on letter recognition and initial sounds, this is perfect for them! They can think of an item that has the initial sound of each letter and draw a picture of it. Once they finish the mat, you can choose to laminate it for durability.
Allow them to use this mat while they are reading or writing. During reading, if they come across a word that they do not know, they can be reminded of the sound and try their best to sound it out. During writing, if they would like to spell a word, they can use this mat to remind themselves of initial sounds to try their best to sound out the word that they want to spell.
