Playdough Shape Mats

Enhance fine motor skills and shape recognition with our Playdough Shape Mats activity! Designed to promote hands-on learning, this resource offers an engaging way for learners to explore 2D shapes using real-life images.

With a variety of shape mats included, such as squares, triangles, rectangles, and circles, students have the opportunity to mold and shape each form using colorful playdough. This tactile experience not only strengthens hand muscles but also reinforces geometric concepts in a fun and interactive manner.

Each shape mat features clear, vibrant images that correspond to real-world objects, providing context and relevance to the learning process. Whether it’s molding a hexagon to resemble a stop sign or crafting a pentagon to mimic a house, students are encouraged to engage creatively while reinforcing shape recognition skills.

Perfect for classroom centers, homeschooling activities, or independent learning, Playdough Shape Mats offer versatility and adaptability to various educational settings. As students manipulate playdough to construct shapes, they develop spatial awareness and hand-eye coordination, laying the foundation for future math and fine motor skill development.

By incorporating hands-on activities like Playdough Shape Mats into your curriculum, you can create a dynamic learning environment that caters to diverse learning styles and fosters a love for learning. Encourage exploration and discovery as students sculpt, shape, and create with this engaging educational resource.

"Chicago ABA Therapy is a boon for special needs kids and parents. They take a play-based, personalized approach and meet the kids where they are. They also go above and beyond - our ABA therapist took time to make sure we as parents understood every aspect of our child's experience, understood how to read his progress reports and generally made us feel a part of his therapy. My child loved all his therapists. Highly recommend the team!"

"We were so happy with our experience with Chicago ABA. We began working with them when our son was almost 4, a few months after his autism diagnosis. It was such an amazing team to work with - everyone was professional, responsive, flexible, and worked so hard for our son to meet his goals, which he did beautifully. We worked together for almost 2 years before he left for kindergarten, and in that time period he met almost all of his goals. We went through several bumps in the road with behavioral difficulties, and the Chicago ABA team did an amazing job helping us problem solve, try new strategies and think of ways to translate those strategies at home. We couldn't recommend them more highly - anyone who works with Chicago ABA will be lucky to have the experience!"
