What is Phoneme-Grapheme Mapping?

Phonics and Spelling Through Phoneme-Grapheme Mapping is a resource for teachers to help students understand the often-confusing relationship between phonemes (the sounds we hear in a word) and graphemes (the letters that represent those sounds).

Motivating for Every Student

With Phonics and Spelling, students learn to connect the sounds of the spoken language to words in print. As they progress in their understanding, they are not only motivated to become proficient spellers, but the skills they learn immediately enable them to become independent decoders of multisyllabic words. Key benefits include:


Various mapping methods used to illustrate the complex yet predictable letter/sound relationships of written English


Teaches the association between word sound to word spelling


Motivational and concrete student lessons
