    • Hi there,

      We have struggled to find a great example for this sound! The scales are there to represent the word 'even'. If you could suggest a different example that you have found particularly effective at modelling this sound then let us know.

      Have a lovely day!

    • Hi Graeme,

      We have been thinking about this!
      How about even? Having numbers with the odd ones crossed out, it then links to maths learning too?

      Have a lovely day too!.

  • Is there a version of this in alphabetical order - like the Phase 2 and 3 alphabetical order sound mats?

    , Oct 15th
    • Hi there MelTeacher747, thanks for your comment! We currently do not have a version like this so I have passed this request on to our resource designers who will do their best to make one for you. :)

    • Hi there MelTeacher747, thanks for your comment! We now have an alphabetical order version. :)

  • hi the picture on the cards seems to have changed from a crayon to hay. which is ok but sound mats still have a crayon. is this going to change?

    , Oct 7th
    • Hi there mikkidavies, thanks for your comment! I can't seem to find the resource which still has "hay" as the example, could you link this to me and I can look into it further? :)

      , Oct 7th
    • Hi thanks for replying, it was the large mnemonic flash cards. I have found it again and I think it may be because I was down loading pre cursive. I thought the cards had changed but sounds like an old version. I love the sound mats as they are very un -fussy and the children easily pick up the sound linked to the picture/action. Mikki

      , Oct 8th
    • Thanks for this reply Mikki! I'm glad we could help you out and it's good to hear that you love using the sound mats. :)

  • Hi there charlene1982, thanks so much for commenting on this resource. The Dyslexia version was done with a slightly different font to make it easier for children with Dyslexia to read it better. Hope this helps! :)

    , Mar 26th
  • Can I ask what the difference is between dyslexic and standard versions are please

    , Mar 25th
  • I have found all of the sound mats very useful. I display them around the classroom and have them on tables as memory joggers.

Phase 5 Sound Mat

Phase 5 Sound Mat - A phase 5 A4 sound mat, including appropriate phonemes with accompanying mnemonic images in accordance with the DfES Letters and Sounds publication. Useful for independent writing, images make it easier for children to relate letters to sounds. Also available in precursive and cursive! Just in case you wonder, the scales representing the split digraph e-e depicts the word 'even' : )

Why not also check out our lovely phase 2 to resources?
