The Hedgehogs (pre-K) class stamped with Legos to make our class Indian Corn wreath. Great for building a sense of community and working on our fine motor skills.
What to try this at home? Here’s what you’ll need:
- A few lego blocks
- Washable paints (we used brown, orange, red and yellow)
- Green and yellow construction paper
- White paper
We had a wonderful time at our monthly field trip to Underwood Farms. We learned about farm animals at their fantastic animal show and did tons of playing and running around. Then we took the wagon out the fields where we could pick the vegetables in season; carrots, cabbage, beets, green and yellow beans, broccoli among a few. Such a great place for kids and adults alike.
Our Pre-Kinder class had a great time exploring our Fall sensory bin.
Children (and adults) learn best and retain the most information when they engage their senses. By giving the students the opportunity to investigate materials with no preconceived knowledge, you’re helping them develop their cognitive, social, physical, creative and linguistic skills.
Here are some of the benefits of Sensory Play:
- Encourages problem solving and decision making as well as basic math skills such as matching, counting and sorting.
- Encourages cooperation and collaborating
- Builds fine motor skills and hand/eye coordination
- Explore our senses
- Provides opportunities for the students to think creatively and build self-esteem
- Students can name and describe objects in the bin encouraging them to use descriptive and expressive language
You can make your own Fall Sensory Bin at home. We used fall leaves, pine cones, dry beans, fall fruit among other things.
