My Students

Pre-k teacher here! This year I have the littlest learners (3 years old) in class and I am so impressed at their enthusiasm and their ability to marvel at the simplest things. We all know that children learn by playing and exploring; that is why I need your help. We are short of toys that they can manipulate and use to exercise their hands.

I have 22 children in my class.

Each one is different in personality, appearance, nationality, and culture, but all have something in common: everyone is curious to discover the world around them.

My Project

Play with sensory toys is almost a daily activity in my classroom, my partner teacher and I tried to make our own sensory toys but sometimes there are not enough for everybody. Sensory play is any activity that helps children focus on their senses. More specifically though, sensory play is a play designed to encourage kids to really dive into their senses. We are of course talking about seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling, and feeling. Also, these kinds of toys help children practice mindfulness and develop skills they need to identify their emotions and communicate them when necessary. We all know there are certain sensations that just soothe us. The same is true for children. Sensory activities can be quite calming for kids. Learning what calms them down can help kids learn to deal with difficult situations.

I have seen how these toys can positively affect my students and will help us grow even more.
