Our classroom sensory bin has finally been switched out for a little green and gold! I find so much value in the time that we spend playing in the sensory bin; there are so many things for the kids to do and so much covert fine motor practice!
This sensory bin includes green and yellow dyed pasta, shamrock erasers, sparkly pompoms, plastic coins, pipe cleaners, bowls, tongs and assortment of spoons!
So far this week, I’ve observed my students scooping and pouring the noodles, transferring noodles with various spoons and tongs, sorting noodles and pompoms by color and size, making patterns and creating jewelry… the possibilities seem endless…
What’s in your sensory bin right now?
