I made these mats for use with letter tiles. The “regular” letter tiles can be found many places: I have seen them in teacher stores, Staples, and Walmart. These mats can also be used with the magnetic letter tiles from Lakeshore. I used a binder clip to clip the letter tile mat to a magnetic board. I made Letter Mats for matching letters and Beginning Sound Mats for matching letters to sounds. My suggestion is to place each mat on a tray (or however you display your materials) with a container of only the letter tiles needed for that particular mat. Click on the thumbnails to download and print the mats.

At the bottom of each of the Beginning Sounds Mats, I have typed the letters you will need for that mat. That part can be trimmed off and attached to the back.
These can be used to match uppercase to uppercase letters, lowercase to lowercase letters, or uppercase to lowercase letters.
