EYFS play dough independent pictorial recipe and activities remote learning playdough fine motor

(0)
A great resource for an independent play dough making activity used in Reception (though could be used with children of other ages). I modeled how to make the play dough to my class, then the children accessed it themselves. I gave as little help as possible. Children make own play dough regularly. This allows fantastic mathematical language, teamwork, communication and problem solving skills. This pack includes: recipe slides which can be used on the board to demonstrate to the children what they need to do, then be printed to create a recipe book. Recipe is written as simply as possible (higher ability Reception children should be able to read it) and represented in pictures too. All measurements are in cups or spoonfuls so the children can measure out themselves. Design a play dough creation writing/ drawing/ labeling sheet Ingredients list writing task sheet. Challenge sheet for continuous provision Teacher notes and planning (including scoop sizes etc. so you can resource the activity so the recipe works!) EYFS areas covered within this resource : PSED Communication and language (following instructions, communicating ideas e.g. how to crack an egg) Physical development Reading writing Shape, space and measure

A great resource for an independent baking activity used in Reception (though could be used with children of other ages). I modeled how to make the cakes to my class, then put them in small, mixed ability groups to make the buns/ cupcakes. I did not help them at all unless they were really stuck and came to ask for help (except with the oven!) They knew that they had to help each other instead. It was amazing how well they did! The children demonstrated fantastic mathematical language, teamwork, communication and problem solving skills.
