How to use Phonics Mats

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

Student completing phonics mat activities for /ay/ spelling pattern

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.

You can use the short text for timed fluency reading too!

There are mats to cover many different sound groups, and include over 130 passages/mats! Students will get familiar with the consistent format, and will be able to work independently.
