What Works For Me 54/375 Sensing ItPosted: March 10, 2012
Some of the most popular activities so far in pre-school have been the easiest ones to prepare. On this occasion I filled a plastic tub with shaving cream. We’ve also done colored rice and a jungle tub with popping corn, soup mix and wild animals. Children find it very soothing and grounding to plunge their hands into something with different textures, sounds, sights and smells. I’ve observed already that if someone is having a “fragile” day they will gravitate towards the sensory materials. It stimulates language and vocabulary too because there are some nay words needed to describe so many new feelings.
