Sensory Play

Help me give my students the experience of sensory play! We have included multiple textures (rice, water beads, salt, beans, gel) because children learn by exploring and touch.

My Students

My Pre-K students are eager to explore and love to learn interactively and hands-on!

It is always special when you can work with the youngest of hearts and be the first teacher to influence the love of learning in a classroom setting.

In my classroom, our Pre-K students are ready to research, explore and engage in diverse and creative learning experiences that connect them to their real life stories. My four year olds are fun, fast, intense, full of love and ready to expand their learning through math, literacy and play.

My Project

This project is based on the exploration of sensory play in the Pre-K classroom. Each child learns in different ways and time frames. We can embed academic learning of letters, numbers and shapes through the use of these sensory bins. We hope to have the different textures (rice, water beads, salt, beans, gel) to spark joy, creativity and the love of learning.

Sensory play is dynamic and crucial to Early Childhood!

Given our times and need for individual materials, we hope this project will allow our students to continue to explore and learn with letters, numbers and shapes through their senses.
