Help me give my students a sensory area in our room. The Light Table Sensory Play helps my students that are very tactile (hands on) and the students that struggle with sensory may find this more inviting.
My classroom is a self-contained ESE Pre-k room. My students' ages run from 3-5 years old. There are varying disabilities in my classroom-some are developmentally delayed, speech and language delayed, autism, and down syndrome-to name a few. My students tend to be very sensory oriented and because of their language and speech delays their inability to communicate can often lead to behaviors that can interfere with their learning.
My students are working really hard to learn how to sit, play, and attend to the teacher or a task.
This is a true struggle for them.
Through Sensory Play the students will gain fine motor skills, gross motors skills, pretend play and self control play. These are all things my kids struggle with. I want to give them more opportunities to gain these skills.
The sensory items will help work on the skills we work on every day with my students and this will be a great way to enhance their hard work.
The students will work with an adult and maybe one or two other students at a time which also helps with taking turns and sharing. I love that this can help them in so many areas.
