These Summer Word Mapping Mats + Google Slides are perfect for incorporating phoneme-grapheme mapping into your phonics lessons and changing it up with fun themes. Templates include summer, back to school, Constitution Day, and Indigenous Peoples' Day themes.

Phoneme grapheme mapping is how words become sight words, aka words we instantly recognize. It's not a process you do physically, as it's a mental process that happens naturally or through explicit instruction. This resource walks you through word mapping any word that has up to 5 sounds.

This is a no prep resource that can be used to teach spelling words, sight words, or regular phonics patterns. Simply print the template you want to use, follow the lesson guide, and watch your students' reading and spelling improve!
