Winter Playdough Mats provide a base for fun fine motor activities in your preschool, kindergarten, or special education classroom. Your little ones can roll, pat, stretch, and form playdough to cover the wintry pictures. As they roll out ropes and balls they are increasing their hand strength and developing fine motor skills that are essential for handwriting.
This download of Winter Playdough Mats includes:
* a recipe for glittery homemade cooked playdough
* 13 playdough mats, winter scenes in color
* 13 playdough mats, winter scenes in blackline
Easy to set up - just print, cut, and laminate. I recommend using card stock for durability. We often place two mats back to back before laminating to save on laminating film.
Winter Playdough Mats are a great addition to your fine motor and art centers.
About the Seller
An experienced teacher of 30+ years, I'm pleased to be here among so many talented teacherpreneurs.
For the past 12 years I have taught 3 to 5 year-olds in a Developmental Preschool classroom in an IL public school. Previously I taught general education students in grades 2, 4, 6, and 8. I've also taught students in special education classrooms (self-contained and resource) in grades K-3; 6-8; and high school.
For me, learning is all about making connections to our everyday lives. For the little ones, everything we do has a connection because the world of reading, writing, counting, computing is unfolding each and every day. For the older kids, my favorite question to answer was, "What's this got to do with my life?"
I'm a big picture sort of person by nature, but being a special education teacher has allowed me to hone my skills of task analysis. Enticing kids into stories and activities is my goal - make it fun and include movement! My job as a teacher of little ones with developmental delays permits me to be creative every day.
