To help fully incorporate literature into your classroom, I have created a one-page story play dough mat for 15 of my favorite back-to-school books. With each book, you are able to target fine motor, vocabulary, story retell and comprehension. Each mat includes a play dough image of a book character for students to complete. Additional pages are included with ONLY the play dough image to accommodate your

student’s needs.

There are 2 versions in this download: PDF and Google Slides™. The Google Slides™ version allows you to assign to your students via email or directly in Google Classroom™. The digital play dough pieces are also available in Google Slides™. Students can drag the play dough shapes to complete the image and drag the play dough balls as they answer the questions. Before you assign the slides or share them with your student, you can delete the slides that do not apply to that student. Then, make a copy again and repeat this process for the next student.
