My students love using play dough any chance they get! So they were super excited when I introduced our play dough mats to practice forming shapes. I showed my students how to roll the play dough like a snake and then how to build the shapes on the mats. It is great fine motor practice!
I also provided them with a chance to practice writing the names of each shape by tracing with their fingers, using a dry-erase marker or even using the play dough.
This download includes a play dough mat for the following shapes:
circle, square, rectangle, triangle, pentagon, star, heart, trapezoid, octagon, hexagon, rhombus/diamond.
