ABC Play Dough Mats: ABC and Fingerspelling
Use abc playdough mats with fingerspelling to reinforce letter recognition and provide fingerspelling practice with play dough. Children are motivated to:
** observe closely
** practice in pairs
** help their friends
Play dough 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.
