This little booklet contains 25 pages that are meant to be laminated for use with play-dough. I have put some of these pages out for number stations and have also led small group activities with the pages.
Any of the pages can be worked on one at a time, or you can print and laminate the whole book and have the students work on different activities depending on their knowledge.
Pages 2-11 are number pages (for numbers 1-10; the first page is a cover page) Students fill in number outlines with play-dough. There are outlines of shapes according to the number too. The students can make the play-dough shapes and practice counting.
Pages 12 and 13 have questions the child can answer using numbers and contain more opportunities to write the numbers using play-dough.
Pages 14-17 have story problems for the kids to illustrate. They can then use the playdough to make the numbers in the story problem.
Page 18 has a no-cook playdough recipe. I have given the recipe to kids in small group and we have practiced reading, recognizing numbers, measuring, and basic fractions as they make the playdough themselves. They also enjoy kneading and mixing different colors. Each child in my room has their own baggie of playdough that we get out when we work on these.
Page 19 gives some tips for teachers.
Pages 20-25 are for the kids to create and act out their own story problems.
