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

** self-correct

** dialog

** practice in pairs

** help their friends

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.
