October Sensory Bins with your students can increase engagement and work on fine motor skills. Nothing gets students more excited than hands on activities that are holiday themed.
As all classrooms are, I have quite a variety of learners this year. Some groups need initial letter sounds. While others are ready for blends and digraphs. For our Fun Friday activity yesterday, I prepared a skeleton themed sensory bin complete with skeleton tongs to grab the cards. The students LOVED this. I wish I could show you all those smiling faces but obviously I wouldn’t/couldn’t do that.
Games are played the same way so that students don’t even know they aren’t all doing the exact same thing.
- Black beans for bottom filler
- Activity cards and worksheets
- Extra seasonal goodies to feel and explore.
I like to look in the Dollar Tree, Dollar General, craft stores, and my own closets for tactile objects to put in my tubs.
Don’t have time to create your own activities? I have these beginning sound activities available both here on my website and on TPT.
