Play dough activities make great centers and are a tactile, engaging activity for young learners. Included in this pack are 57 digraph play dough mats for sounds WH, CH, TH, PH and SH. Each individual digraph is color coded to make it easy to keep the mats organized.
The mats include the digraph at the beginning or the word, in the middle and at the end other word so students have plenty of opportunity to practice. Also included is a recording sheet in which students write the completed word and draw a picture of the word. This activity can be differentiated by simply changing the number of mats students work on.
To make it even more flexible for teachers, the mats are not numbered. There is a circle in the top left corner of each mat for you to write a number in if students are using the recording sheet that way you can mix up the mats in any order you want. All beginning sounds or all ending sounds or ending sounds from different digraphs or whatever order you need them to be in!!
These mats are simple, low maintenance way to get students practicing important phonics skills.
