Numeracy and Play Dough

On Friday I had the pleasure of teaching 16 Kindy / year 1 kids. I decided I needed to change it up a bit and try to keep my lessons as engaging and hands on as possible. Play dough was my go to. In Maths we used it to shape numbers and make symbol representations. They loved it! 

Play dough is so cheap to buy these days. I especially love the individual tubs as it allows each student to have one.

These only cost me $10 at Kmart.
