B is for Bus

Squishing, rolling, sculpting, molding . . . young children love to play with playdough.


This firm and soft substance holds many benefits for the preschool child.


Through it, our students practiced their fine motor and pre-reading skills as they pinched and rolled the dough.


These actions strengthened the small muscles in their hands and helped with letter recognition.


For this activity, we used playdough to spell the word bus.


One of our letters for the week was B, so we first talked about the sound B made, and then put ourselves to work to create a B, a U, and an S!
