Phonics Skills Word Mapping Activity

Regular price $10.00

You want to help your child read and spell better but don't know where to start?

Then this is the perfect resource for you!

This comprehensive resource shows you how to teach your child phoneme-grapheme mapping. All this means is your child hears the sounds and then matches the letter or letters that spell those sounds. 

Using this method makes learning to read and spell so much easier and more efficient. You'll never have to wonder if you're teaching your child the right phonics skills. Plus, the answer keys show exactly how to map each of the 432 words included!

Please note that this is included FREE in Sound School. Read more about Sound School here.
