ABC Play Dough Mats are a fun way to work on letter recognition, phonics, and fine motor skills.
Children can’t learn how to write without first perfecting the fine motor skill of pencil grasp. Using play dough, shaving cream, or even pasta helps a child do just that while having fun. The pre writing stage is essential to future handwriting success. You simply can not skip this stage if you want your child to succeed.
Children with autism tend to have poor fine motor skills which have to be strengthened through occupational therapy. Using these mats, you can implement therapy at home or enhance the therapy sessions your child attends. Make the most of your therapy dollars by continuing to work on objectives and goals.
Using play to introduce letter sounds is a proven method for beginning reading instruction, too! Work on the sounds, shapes, and motor skill development with this simple but fun activity.
These ABC mats are easy to print and laminate for use over and over again. Lose a letter? Just reprint and laminate again.
Make a set for your house, Grandma’s house or even the car for traveling with a set of washable dry erase markers.
