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 enjoying during August. We didn’t start our theme groups until a couple of weeks after school had started but we went ahead and put some sensory items in the check out cart for teachers to use with their students.
The students explored measurement using different size scoops and spoons in boxes of oatmeal or red velvet cake mix.
There were shapes to discover while exploring the moonsand.
The students had a blast drawing swirls and letters in the shaving cream.
Everyone loves messy play 🙂
More science to explore with our water activities!
We did finish up the month with our Fun Summer Vacation theme. The book featured photos of our teachers vacations—-they went to some fun places!
The students enjoyed our North Carolina Appalachian Trail umbrella—-complete with recorded bird songs and a cute little black bear.
Lots of teachers visited beach—-and the students enjoyed exploring our mini one!
One of our teachers went to Iowa—-so we included a box filled with corn kernels.
Students worked on fine motor skills cutting Texas cowboy hats and New York taxi cabs out of
yellow play dough.
Our oobleck was scented with nutmeg like that grown on Grenada—-one of the Spice Islands!
The favorite box from this unit was our Disney box! The students had a blast—-from sorting the colorful pompoms to checking themselves out in the mirror.
Of course our students always totally rock hats 🙂
Fun and learning—–Group by Group!
