My Students

We are a very busy community classroom in the middle of small-town USA. We live in a rural community, with small numbers but lots of heart. Our classroom is a place of moving, exploring, making mistakes, and growing! We love to learn about things we see in our small community, but also about life in other places and parts of the world.

I can do it!!

This is a phrase we love to hear in our classroom. That moment when a child transitions from "I can't!" to "I can!!"! We celebrate our growth on a daily basis and support each other in overcoming challenging tasks to reach the "I can!" phase.

My Project

Sensory play is a vital part of a child's development because using their senses is the best way to learn and explore new concepts. Sensory play not only benefits language, cognitive, fine motor, and problem solving skills; but also helps calm an anxious child. A sensory table would help us build science skills, while containing the mess, but also aides in academic learning concepts such as letters and numbers. Hiding letters in sand, using tweezers to pull plastic numbers out of beans, or floating alphabet boats in water are just a few examples of incorporating academics into sensory play. Developing fine motor skills is another major component of sensory play as children scoop, pour, rake, shovel, sift, and pinch items from within the sensory materials. Sensory learning is an excellent way for young children to explore the world they live in!
