Let's begin with literacy...
Forming letters and numbers with Play-doh is a great reinforcement for students because they really have to "think" about how to form the sounds and letters as they make them. While their doing it they are thinking about whatever skill it is they are working on. Double reinforcement! (K.RF.1)
If your students are beyond letter making skills, maybe they can use the following cards for ordering letters in alphabetical order or making sight words. (K.RF.1, K.RF.3, 1.KL.2)
Students can practice their short vowels sounds and reinforce them even more by making the letter. (1.RF.2a, 1.RF.2c)
Now moving on to math stations...
These set of cards help with numeral formation and also reinforces counting.(K.CC.4)
