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.
This post has photos of our middle and high school students taken during the month of October.
We had some great themes and the students had a blast!
We started the month with a unit on Native Americans. So many cool including some Zuni “turquoise” beans to explore, play dough deer to count, and in another box a little teepee.
Lots of FUN!
In Ms. Christy’s class the students even completed worksheets about the different boxes—-working on their writing skills!
Our Fall unit had a lot of colorful fun. The collegiate pom pom shakers were a HUGE hit!
Apparently we have a lot of football fans out there!
They also had fun with the cuddly pompom yarn and mixed bean “soup”
By far the favorite was our fabulous Fall umbrella—–so bright and colorful!!!!
We had 2 different kinds of rice boxes for Columbus Day. One was filled red, green, and white rice representing Italy and the other contained red and yellow rice representing Spain.
There was more play dough, this time blue—–representing the “ocean blue” Columbus sailed upon.
We introduced some “kinetic” sand which was a hit with students and staff alike!
Very cool stuff!
Gold beads and a jewel filled discovery bottle filled with Queen Isabella’s jewels were also very popular!
For red ribbon week EVERYTHING was RED!
Including red jello to explore!
This vibrating plush crab made for giggly fun!
Other items included the always popular red moon sand.
There were red monkeys hidden in red spaghetti, and……
a noisy red stretchy tube!
We finished our fabulous fun month with a fun unit on fairy tales!
All the students loved reading the book and seeing their classmates dressed in costumes…….
……..and dressing in costume themselves 🙂
There were GIANT chenille stems and
magical characters to identify.
Brightly lit magic wands and bubbles were huge hits this week.
The ever popular oobleck proved irresistible as always 🙂
A great month filled with fun activities from our sensory cart!
