Here is a Melissa & Doug puzzle that would be perfect for this unit.
If you’re new to sensory bins and sensory play, read this fabulous article to see why it’s so important.
This week I filled the bin with colored rice, a scoop, flower and butterfly cookie cutters, flowers and buttons.
Books- 2 per day, (both were read at least twice.) I always read the book through first and read it again for further comprehension. On the second read, I ask questions and talk about what is on some of the pages. I ask her to point lots of different things.
Song- 2 per day.
Craft/ Activity: Coloring, painting, creating.
Sensory Bin Play: This is what lasts the longest with our lessons. We work on taking things out, putting them in, picking things up and so forth. This is a great time to work on directions with your child.I kept the bin, puzzles and games out of her play areas. I only bring them out when it was time for our Mommy School time. I wanted them to be special, something she looked forward to and didn’t have at her fingertips all day.
