Paperless Beginning Sounds Letter Matching Activity
This paperless beginning sounds letter matching activity is an interactive, digital version of our printable beginning sounds letter matching mats.
This version is perfect for use during blended or distance learning when students may not have access to the physical mats and letter tiles.
This activity allows students to practice letter recognition as well as letter sound correspondence. They will match the correct letter of the alphabet to the picture card that begins with that letter sound.
The pictures are very straightforward, eliminating student confusion and questions. They will simply drag the lowercase letters to cover the pictures that begin with that sound. There are no uppercase letters in this activity.
