How to use Letter Playdough Mats

We have used the mats with our letter of the week activities. For the Letter M playdough mat, we used galaxy homemade playdough and learned about the moon. You can grab this free printable at the bottom of this post.

I present the playdough mat along with a book at the begining of each week when I introduce the letter of the week.

I usually present the mat with the letter already made to show my toddler how the mat is to be used.

We identify the letter of the week as we read the book. At this time, my son us usually playing with the playdough as I read the story, then at the endo of the book we make the letter again using the mat. My son is 3 so he can’t do the letter by himself, in this case, I help him and we do the activity together.

Whenever you can, use a multi-sensory approach when teaching the alphabet. Our letter of the week plan has been a work in progress and we have seen great progress with the kids. (We have 4 kids doing the weekly activities along).

We are five weeks in and 3 of the kids recognize, sound, and label at least 2 letters that we have worked on so far.
