Friends Abroad and Playdough Fun!

Hello Lovelies! I am so excited to share a friend's blog with you. She is currently over seas and sharing her story of her trip to Uganda, while she works with many amazing children and families. If you are interested in joining her on her journey check it out here:

In other news, I have been working hard on my TpT store for those of us that will be returning to school shortly! My latest creation is something that my kinders used daily and now my first graders are going to have to expand on. 
 Playdough cards for letters and numbers help students learn correct letter formation and give them a way to release some tactile energy :)
 I have created all capital letters on one side and lowercase on the other. This makes it easy to use a paper cutter to cut the entire stack, laminate, and either bind or clasp together. The letters are hollow for the students to form playdough within. I have also added the structural shapes that the students will need to create to piece the letters together.
My student's loved the letters so much that I have created corresponding number cards!


Don't forget to add your favorite items to your wishlist or maybe even your cart ;)

Such a great new product!! I teach Kindergarten and completely see how this could help my Kinder Babies!! Just a little bit sad that our school is a D'Nealian school. You don't happen to have them in this format do you? :)

Jessica, these are so great! I am teaching 3 and 4 year olds this year, but I can totally see the 4 year olds loving to do this. Also, I like your idea to do a video to explain your product. You'll have to tell me how to do that on my Mac sometime...

Hi Jessica!

As I was watching Studio 5, a Utah local home show, they did a segment on stopping the summer slide, and they featured TPT, and showed one of your products. I was so excited when I saw it! I wanted to let you know. Here's the link if you want to check it out.
