Directions & Suggestions for use:
*Print mats on cardstock and laminate
*I chose to print mine double sided so that when they are in a center students could flip the mat over and try a different letter on the back
*Decide if you want to use store-bought or homemade playdough
*To make the playdough seen in the pictures please refer to the recipe included in the pack
*use as an abc center or in guided reading/small group for added practice and review
*Students roll playdough to form letters
*Students make ‘cookies’ to cover the pictures that start with the letter on the card (or use clothespins to mark the answers)
*Students use dry erase markers to practice writing the letter (they can also trace the ‘playdough letter’ if you prefer than for students to make the letter in playdough
Makes a great ABC center! Use it at different times throughout the year to review and practice new skills!
Start the year with letter ID and formation, move onto listening for the letter's sound and end with a review of all letters, how they are formed and sounds they make!
