Alphabet Play Dough Maths: the purpose of these differentiated play dough mats is to develop your students awareness of phonics as well as fine motor skills essential for cutting and handwriting.
Each mat involves creating a lower case play dough letter as well as objects with the same beginning sound (e.g. apples for the "a" letter mat).
A second set of mats include the added challenge of integrating math skills by specifying the number of objects the students should make.
1 x teacher notes
27 x pages of basic play dough mats A-Z (with 2 options for "x") which involve creating a lower case letter and objects beginning with that letter sound
27 x pages of more advanced play dough mats A-Z (with 2 options for "x") which involve creating a lower case letter and a SET NUMBER of objects (1-10) beginning with that letter sound
This resource encompasses aspects of three learning styles: visual, reading-writing and kinesthetic.
In order to use this resource students will require playdough and playdough cutting tools (usually available at your local Dollar Store).
Younger/less able children will benefit from manipulating playdough to duplicate lower case letters and create objects with the same beginning sounds.
Older/more advanced students can enjoy the added challenge of creating a specific number of objects on each of the mats.
