"I love the fingerspelling right on these mats so my little students can continue practicing in a playful way. Thanks for sharing your creative ideas!" Barb C.

Playdough is a staple item in many preschools, kindergartens and home kitchens. It is easy to make and—properly stored—keeps for months. Play dough develops small finger muscles for writing and provides a rich social context for language and concept development. Use abc fingerspelling mats for word work.

"Super excited to teach my students to sign the alphabet and words this year! Thank you for the resource!!!" Sharareh W.
