These two-sided short vowel spelling mats are perfect for hands-on reading and spelling practice.
What you’ll get
A pdf file with 170 two-sided spelling mats for short vowel words (cat, flat, tip, chip, etc.). One side of each mat has blank circles. The other side has letters inside them.
These are designed for use with milk cap letters, but you could also use bottle cap letters, paper circles, or labeled poker chips.
Instead of downloading each set individually, one purchase will get you all the mats in one easy download! Plus, you get 18 extra mats not available in the free version.
How to use
1. Simply print the mats front to back on light cardstock. Then cut apart on the solid black lines.
2. Prepare letters to use with the mats. You can follow my tutorial for making milk cap letters or simply write the letters on milk or bottle caps using permanent marker. You could use a round circle punch to make the letters out of paper, or write on white poker chips.
3. One side of each card has blank circles; the other side has the letters. Your child can simply match the letters as he reads the words.
4. Or your child can fill in the blank side, slide off the letters, and flip over the mat to check his spelling.
