These alphabet literacy center mats are aligned with best practices from the Science of Reading! They include an alphabet decodable sentence and multisensory practice for each letter.
They ask students to work with each alphabet letter in multiple ways, from reading it to saying the sounds to writing it to finding it.
How do they work? Students will:
- Say the letter
- Read the alphabet decodable sentence
- Match a magnetic letter
- Trace the letter

What supplies will I need for this phonics literacy center? I strived to make these phonics mats as low prep as possible! You will need to laminate them and then add: cubes or counters, magnetic letters, and a dry erase marker.
This is a predictable literacy center! You only have to explain it once because the activity stays the same. If your students are ready for word detective mats, the transition will be easy for them.
