It's so motivating early in the year. And, it provides some of the best fine motor exercise available. A couple weeks ago I shared a freebie with you for working on letter id. Click HERE if you didn't get it....
These are perfect because kids love using playdoh, they are hyper-focused on those letters as they form each with playdoh, and simply manipulating the playdoh helps develop the fine motor control they will need later in writing. It's such a super simple activity, yet highly effective!
My kids literally grieve each year when I put the playdoh away after we have a good grip on our letters. So, I decided to incorporate using playdoh in math tubs and in my word study center. Here are a couple other packs I've made for playdoh:

Dolch words Pre-Primer, Primer, and First Grade Words.
