Alphabet Play Dough Mats
This product contains 26 full-color alphabet mats. The mats can be laminated so that you can use them over and over again. These play dough mats can be used as worksheets or take-home activities.
Each alphabet mat contains three sections and provides many opportunities to practice letter recognition, phonemic awareness, and strengthen fine motor skills. The mats contain the following sections:
✔ Alphabet Square – Children can finger trace the large letters or they can place a coil of play dough, waxed yarn, or small objects on top of the letter. Children can also color the letter.
✔ Initial Sound Examples- Children can review the objects pictured, say the name of the objects, practice the sound that is associated with the focus letter, search for the letter in each word, and/or circle the letter in each word. If you are using the black and white activity sheets, children can color the pictures.
✔ Writing Practice- Children can trace the dotted letters and write the letters on the lines.
