Pizza Alphabet Play Dough Mats

These themed play dough mats are not only fun but educational too. Through this activity, your kids will develop their pre-reading skills.

 

Your preschoolers will work on their letter knowledge by practicing letter formation and letter writing.

 

As as your children squeeze, roll, and squish the play dough, they will also develop their fine motor skills and hand muscle strength. 

 

Alphabet Activities For Letter Knowledge

 

What Is Letter Recognition?

Letter recognition is is the ability to recognize and name all of the lowercase and capital letters.

 

Kids who can recognize the letters of the alphabet can also distinguish between them too.

 

Using hands-on activities like this one is a fun way for kids to practice identifying capital and lowercase letters!

To prepare this free printable, click on the button below and fill out the form. Then, download and print the mats that you want to use.

 

I like to print my resources on white card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.

 

You can then laminate the play dough mats or put them in reusable dry erase pockets.

 

How To Use These Pizza Alphabet Play Dough Mats:

To use this alphabet activity, your kids will pick a play dough mat and identify the letter or letters on it. (One set includes both the capital and lowercase letters.)

 

Then, they will use red play dough to form the letter. After they make the letter, they can write it on the recording sheet. 

 

Alphabet Mats

 

To make learning the letters of the alphabet more fun, you can use other manipulatives other then the red play dough.

 

For these pizza mats, try pom poms with tweezers, buttons, or even pizza mini erasers. I recently order some from Target.

These Pizza Alphabet Play Dough Mats are easy for your kids to use independently as they learn the alphabet and work on letter formation.
