We can use these free printable Beginning Sound ABC Play Dough Mats to practice letter formation and letter sound correspondence in pre-k and kindergarten. Before children are able to read fluently they must first identify the letters of the alphabet and the sounds the letters represent. Once kids are able to recognize the alphabet and sounds, we can help them learn to start reading and writing. This set of free printable ABC Initial Sounds Mats will help children work on fine motor muscles and engage in sensory play while building literacy skills.
Beginning Sounds ABC Play Dough Mats
These no-prep ABC Initial Sound Mats are perfect for small group activities or in your classroom.
Laminate them or add them to dry-erase pockets so that you can use them over and over again.
As kids roll out play dough snakes to create the numbers they are getting excellent fine motor practice.
You can have children choose their favorite color of play dough, roll it out into long pieces and then break the pieces to fit inside each letter.
At the bottom of the sheet, kids can press play dough balls into the pictures that show the corresponding letter on the play dough mat.
Additional activities to extend learning:
- Have kids identify items around the classroom that correspond with each letter.
- On the table or a work tray have children attempt to create the letters in their name from what they have learned.
