Help me give my students the opportunity to learn through sensory play. Young children will often retain information better if they are able to learn in a play-based area with multi-sensory experiences.
Each year I am blessed with 16-22, four to six-year-old children. These children come with all types of backgrounds, skill levels, and social-economic status. Each child has a different level of kindergarten readiness and a unique way of learning. As their teacher, it is my responsibility to reach their individual needs and provide them a safe, nurturing, and educationally rich environment to learn and grow in. I love my students and am blessed to be able to teach them!
By using the sand and beads students will be able to learn through sensory play.
Research has shown that children who play while learning retains and learn information more quickly.
STEAM lessons include building and art activities, both of which can be completed with a sensory table and tools.
It is also been a trend that students are lacking fine motor skills when entering kindergarten. These tools will help students to strengthen their hands and hand-eye coordination.
Multi-sensory approaches also help children to retain information. Each child learns differently and having the opportunity to play in a multi-sensory approach during the school day will help me to create a fun and academically rich atmosphere for my students. So many fun and academic lessons can be taught with a sensory table and I cannot wait to use it in the classroom!
