How to Prep

This activity is simple to prep. Start by printing the pages you would like to use, laminate them, and then cut out the picture beginning sound cards. The mats stay whole. If you would like you can add Velcro dots to the pieces and inside each of the spots on the mat or you can leave them as is. One of the benefits of using Velcro dots is having a place to store the pieces when you are done using the activity. They can just be attached to the mats and taken off the next time you want to use them. 

How to Use

Depending on your students, you can choose to use all of the mats at once or give out just a few letter mats at a time. Having a smaller amount of cards out at a time can help keep your students from becoming overwhelmed.

Other Ways to Use

This activity would also make a wonderful cut-and-paste beginning sound activity. You can give your students the letter mats you would like to use and then the pieces and the kids can cut them out and glue them onto the correct mats.
