Special Thinkers need a Sand Table to Promote Language

My Students

Do you remember playing in your classroom as a young learner? My student's are still developing this skill. These resources will help us play cooperatively while developing language skills.

My class is composed of 7 very special thinkers.

Most students in our class have been diagnosed with Autism. They have developmental delays in social skills as well as language. They are an excited group of learners and love to explore their surroundings. We are located on a public school campus and have a lot of peers we are always learning to play with.

My Project

This sand and water table will allow my students to explore sensory needs as they develop language skills. It would be amazing to have the chance to work on both skills at the same time. We will use the sensory table in order to build and describe things that our teacher may "hide" in the table. We will practice taking turns and sharing. We will also be able to practice talking about items we find. Some students will be simply labeling items while others will be practicing social exchanges with peers. The possibilities are endless!

This project will make such a difference.

My students are still exploring the world around them and developing their language. This sand and water table will allow my students to explore and talk about what they are doing. These materials would make is possible to better communicate with peers and adults.
