Welcome to the After Party! Each week after the weekly blog featuring activities in the elementary department is posted, our sensory cart is parked in the media center where it is available for check out by the rest of the school. During the summer in our post about the sensory cart we included some photos of our middle and high school students enjoying the items. This was so popular that we decided to do monthly posts showcasing the fun!
Our unit on the Soccer World Cup was a lot of fun—– the fabulous Brazilian rainforest umbrella and the wacky fan were student favorites!
They also loved sifting through the red, white, and blue Team USA rice to find letters and hidden pictures!
Labor Day brought more fun activities!
The Goldilocks and the 3 Bears unit had lots of fun textures to explore!
There were also activities to promote a variety of fine motor skills…….
……including seeing which scoop could pick up more oatmeal……
……and which numbers could be found in the rice.
Everyone had a blast celebrating Elephant Appreciation Day!
There were interesting textures to explore while working on learning access point science and math concepts.
The students also loved finding the elephants floating in our discovery bottles!
We finished September with our Comic Book Superhero unit which everyone enjoyed——especially the cool glowing Ninja turtle ooze!
As with our elementary students, our older students enjoy smelling the different lotions that go along with each unit—-think we have a winner here 🙂
Well, we hope you enjoyed seeing all the fun our older students have been having with the sensory cart! We will be back with another After Party post in October. As usual, it will be filled with more fun and learning—–Group by Group!
