These primer sight word play dough mats are a great tool to use all year long! Students will work on mastering their sight words and build fine motor skills in the process!

How do my students use these play dough mats?

On each mat, students will…

  1. Create the word with play dough
  2. Trace the word with a dry erase marker
  3. Write the word with a dry erase marker

Won’t this sight word activity just encourage my students to play during centers?

No, as long as you go over expectations with your students when you introduce the center, they should be able to handle it independently. If you find a few students are playing more than working, take away the center for a few days and then let them try again.

What words are included?

    I am a PreK teacher, but had to fill in for summer school with some older students. I found this resource and it was perfect for students to have some engaging, independent work while I worked with another small group.
