These Christmas themed play dough mats encourage students to practice letter formation and alphabet recognition using a hands-on approach. You will find an easy no bake recipe for homemade gingerbread play dough that will make enough for your entire class to build letters. (I recommend laminating the mats or placing them in sheet protectors.)
Keep students engaged with the beautiful illustrations. Early finishers and your advanced students can use the corresponding worksheet to make sure they find all 26 letters and their matching pictures.
I've used these mats in a whole class setting but they are especially helpful during your center rotations, keeping students busy while you are meeting with other students in a small group or one-on-one setting.
