Monster Mapping® shows students WHICH speech sounds each segmented grapheme represents. On the Spelling Mat the representation for the speech sound is shown in red.
We have created Monster Spelling Map this because the cost of shipping hard copy resources can be more than the resource itself ! We do ship our resources internationally, but wanted parents and teachers to be able to download the spelling choices as a digital download.
See exactly what is in the resource by watching this video clip, and to teach students which speech sound each Speech Sound Monster says !
The file is printed as an A4 and although the words are tiny (there are 300+ spelling choices and example word to fit on!) students can read them, but I would make it even more fun and give them magnifying glasses. We call them 'Speech Sound Pic Detectives'!
Each Speech Sound Monster aligns with a phonetic symbol (see IPA Chart) These are used within the Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Approach - a 'Speech to Print' Approach to teaching reading and spelling. Use a web site like tophonetics.com to transcribe English words, and see the phonetic symbols.
Every child reading for pleasure, quickly and easily !
