Read Across America Day, also known as Dr. Seuss’ birthday, is March 2nd. My kids love this day and we love to celebrate and go all out. My young ones love to read the rhyming stories and look at the hysterical pictures in his books. We have a small library of Dr. Seuss books that we pull from often when we need a break or just want a fun story. These playdough mats coordinate beautifully with the Dr. Seuss Inspired Tot & PreK-K pack I created a couple years ago and the new “I Spy” packet I created for The Multi Taskin Mom!
Playdough mats are great for working on counting, fine motor skills and even letter recognition. I recommend printing each page (preferably on cardstock, but printer paper will work too) and then laminating them for longevity. The nice thing about these mats is that they really are multi-purpose. You can use them with playdough for younger kids and then graduate to wipe-off markers as they get more fine motor skills. You can also use a variety of objects to place in the little boxes to help kids with their counting. My girls also love to use pom-poms to count.
Included in this set:
- 4 Letter Playdough Mats
- 1-10 Number Playdough Mats
If you’re looking for some great readers to use while learning about Dr. Seuss, check out these great titles. Many are probably available at your local library, or you could get a Kindle version for most of them on Amazon. I love using my Kindle Reader app to read with my kids. I have so many titles at the tip of my fingers in just minutes!
