New to the Piles of Pancakes series: play dough mats to target LANGUAGE skills!
Combine pretend play and play dough with early language skill practice for piles of fun with these pancake-themed play dough mats. Language targets include pronouns, verbs, possessives, plurals and categories. This set includes:
15 pancake griddle mats with 10-11 language target pictures on each mat
2 plate mats for stacking play dough pancakes
1 blank griddle mat for open ended use
2 recipes for pumpkin scented play dough (regular and gluten free)
Each mat contains a language prompt to target a specific skill. However, mats can be used to target additional goals. For example, pronoun mats also work well for targeting copula and auxiliary verbs as well as vocabulary.
Target prompts include:
She is _____.
He is _____.
They are _____.
The ____ is hers.
The ____ is his.
The ____ is theirs.
Plural, possessive, pronouns his/her and category mats each contain 2 larger circles to stack pancakes on, with written prompts on each circle.
Print mats on card stock and laminate.
Give each student a pancake griddle mat to use, 10-11 small play dough balls (I like to make the play dough balls ahead of time), and a plate mat.
The students take a play dough ball and pat it onto a pancake circle on the griddle mat, saying the language target.
Repeat until all pancake circles are filled.
Students use a spatula to flip each play dough pancake and say the target under each pancake.
Students then transfer each pancake to the plate mats, saying each target word as they stack the pancakes on top of each other on the plate.
Students try to stack all the pancakes on top of each other without the stack falling.
My kids absolutely love this one!
