Sensory Play in Ms. Powell's Pre-K

My students need a new sand and water table to explore and learn through the use of their five senses.

My Students

Pre-K is such a fun and exciting grade to teach! My students come to me for their first experience with school and often their first time away from their families. My students are primarily English Language Learners and often come to school knowing very little English.

By the time they leave Pre-K, they are speaking in complete sentences and expressing themselves in brand new ways.

My goal is to provide my students with as many opportunities as possible to build their language skills.

My Project

Pre-K students learn about their world through the use of their five senses. During their investigation of sensory play materials in the sand and water table, my students are learning how to express themselves, building their vocabulary, and working together with their classmates. We dig for treasure on Pirate Day. We plant flowers during the spring time. We even bring our sensory table outside for Water Play Day. Our previous sensory table was well loved and well used, but unfortunately it didn't survive the last school year.

Each theme we have during the year has a complementary sensory component.

This new table will make it easier and more effective to incorporate our sensory activities this year. The explorations we do through the use of our sensory table will help us meet the Pre-K environmental science standards.
