What is a sound mat?
A sound mat is a printed collection of phonemes (sounds) that the children use in phonics which are usually split into 4 out of the 5 taught phases (as phase 1 does not enough any written letters).
Each sound is accompanied by a related image to help your child quickly recognise the sound that the letter makes. It’s mostly used as a way to help children recall the sound made, or help them find the grapheme (written letter) they need for their spelling.
