We like to switch the materials in our Sensory Bin every month
to reflect either the season or the monthly theme.
This month our sensory bin contains:
Leaves (from the Dollar store)
Plastic scale (for comparing the weights of the different materials)
After interest in playing with these items waned, I turned the bin into an I Spy game.
It would be best if the items I had included for the game had a Fall theme.
But since I didn't have more Fall items other than what was already in my bin, I just used what I had on hand.
As you will see on the poster, I included some cookie cutter shapes
and various toys from around the classroom.
I also added a bunch of extra items to the bin that were not on the I Spy sheet to make the game more challenging.
For instance, I included both a red dinosaur and a blue dinosaur so that the students would have to find not just a dinosaur, but the dinosaur that was the correct colour.
I will change the items up next week for Halloween to include skeletons, ghosts, and other Halloween items.
