  • Initial Blends (l-blends, r-blends, s-blends)
  • I Spy Digraphs (1 placemat)
  • I Spy Blends (3 placemats)
  • I Spy Alphabet (4 placemats)
  • Word Lists

Phonics Placemats – Ideas for Use:

  • Ask child to identify sounds (in alphabetical order, out of order, initial sounds from child’s name, etc.).
  • Provide a sound and have child identify (by pointing) the corresponding letter.
  • Use the list of words provided to play “I Spy” for the digraphs, blends, and alphabet mats.
  • Ask child to find a picture/word that starts with F, G, H…
  • Have child ask YOU to find a picture/word with a specific beginning sound. Have them check your work to see if you’re correct.
  • Extensions – identify words that rhyme, words with the same ending sound, words with 1, 2, or 3 syllables.

These learning mats may be printed and inserted double-sided into a plastic sleeve for durability. Print in full color or save ink by printing the black and white low-ink option on colored paper or cardstock.

Idea: skip the placemat and use these pages for coloring – students will color in each picture visual as the skill is mastered. A great visual tracking tool!
