ABC play dough mats for preschool and pre-k. I love these because kids can build the letters with playdough, find the letter in the alphabet line, find the letter/practice the sounds with the pictured objects, trace the letter, and write the letter. Soooo many ways to experience each letter.
How many letters can this team name in one minute? Children love playing "Master of the Alphabet," an excellent example of playful learning from Diane Bonica, a treasured colleague. Practicing during "activity time" is part of children's play. Soon they proudly perform as experts! Joyful learning accelerates literacy by taking advantage of how the brain learns best.
