Alphabet Letter Mats – Beginning Sound Match


These beginning alphabet letter sound mats contain images and mats for all of the alphabet letters. They are perfect for literacy centers. Just print, cut, laminate, add velcro and it is all ready!

I have also included alphabet letter sorting for younger kids.

Please note that for the letter X mat the images are for beginning, middle and end letter sound due to the lack of clipart available.

You can download a sampler of letter A on my blog here.

You will find 26 alphabet mats with six card slots.

Please note that you are purchasing a digital product that you will need to print out yourself.


This alphabet sorting mat activity includes both letter recognition and beginning sound match options with or without vocabulary words. This beginning sound picture match activity can be adapted for use with students in preschool, kindergarten and first grade. Simply print, laminate and cut and your students will be exploring letters and beginning sounds in a fun and engaging way.
