How to use Phonics Mats

Phonics Mats can be used as a whole group, small group, or individual activity.

Phonics Mats are fun to use for choral reading! Each mat includes a short text featuring the spelling pattern, and directions to read the passage three times. Choral reading comes in handy for the first of three readings, or for all three with struggling readers who need more scaffolding.
