What educators are saying

I loved this and so do my students! Thank you so much for all your hard work in putting this together!
My students loved using this resource within the classroom! It helped them stay engaged in the material and grow their learning. Would definitely recommend!


If you teach beginning readers, these Phonics Mats are a MUST-HAVE in your classroom! Beginning readers need a lot of phonics practice in order to break the code of reading. Students will have to strictly rely on their phonetic skills to read each of the words.

Teachers love that these NO PREP Phonics Mats allow students to feel instant success when reading. Students love that they can use their phonics skills to decode the words. Students begin by stretching through the sounds in a word family or blend. Then, they continue to read words practicing that phonics skill as well as sentences and a short story. These correlate well with the Science of Reading and research on dyslexia.

Here's what you'll get...

The packet includes 52 Phonics Reading Mats that can be laminated and reused over and over again in small reading groups. Phonics skills included are: short vowels, long vowels with silent e, long vowel teams, r-controlled words, digraphs, blends, & diphthongs.

Ideas for using these in your classroom...

Phonics Reading Mats are perfect to use as a warm-up during small group reading instruction. They would also work well during independent reading practice or during a reading center or station.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"This is the best resource for phonic and sight word instruction/review I have ever seen. I always felt students needed to apply their knowledge as soon as possible to continue learning and to enjoy it. This is the perfect tool and should be implemented in many grade levels to give each and every student the experience they need to become lifelong readers. " - Kathleen

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"My students love, love the reading mats. They feel so successful and want to practice them all the time. I use them with my small groups, independent, and home practice. This is probably my best purchase all year! Thank you." -Cynthia
