Play dough mats are a classroom favorite. They are a simple, low prep engaging way to practice tons of different skills. This set included School bus themed alphabet mats. There are upper and lower case sets. Both a full page and small card versions are included in this set. These are perfect for Back to School time and a great way to introduce centers. Simply print and laminate so they can be used over and over again.
I use the full page versions to start and then once they are proficient with those and can make several each time, I introduce the smaller cards. I use these to work on spelling there name with playdough and then eventually our spelling or sight words. To start I link the letters together to make it a little easier for students. Once they can make the whole word/their name, I take the letters apart and make them have to find the letters they need
