My students LOVE using play-doh! I added the play-doh into their word work center for them to stamp out words with. BUT...I realized very quickly that they were playing a lot more then spelling! So, I knew I had to add some work to that center also :)
There are two rings full of sight words in this center, letter cutters, a rolling pin for them to roll out the play-doh...and now there is also a folder with an activity sheet for them to complete.

I also added a new activity. They love looking at books and I have a ton of alphabet books. So, I put the ABC books along with an activity sheet into their center. Most of them will not finish this activity in one center rotation, so they can put it back in the folder to finish another day!

If you would like either of these activities click HERE or on the pictures to download for free :) 


  1. I have a TON of alphabet books and am always wondering how to incorporate them in to the curriculum more often. Great idea!

  2. I love using Play Doh with my kids too. Have you ever tried scented Play Doh? I make mine with different extracts (mint, chocolate, lemon, etc.) and the kids go crazy for it! I have a lot of freebies on my blog. Come over and check it out if you have a minute! :)
