This is a bright and active group of five and six-year-old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day. This helps them learn to focus and improve self-control issues. Small group activities that let us get up and move help our ADHD tendencies stay under control. We need real reasons to move and stretch.
We grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.
Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps us in so many ways. We get noisy, but we learn so much together. We need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. We need to show the colors of our ideas. We need ways to be active and help us learn to control our ADHD tendencies. There is so much to learn.
Kindergarten students are just 5 or 6 years old. They struggle with so many concepts that we as adults take for granted. These sensory materials will help my children view our world as a colorful, bright intriguing place.
With these light table supports, my children will learn to use their sense of touch to help them gain control when frustrated.
They will explore different textures and colors as they work with these materials. They will get to include lightness and darkness in these explorations. With these supplies, they will become explorers who are in control.
These Tactile Tangles will allow us to take some of these explorations to other parts of the room.
