Sensory bins are such an important part of any early childhood classroom. Sensory play is so beneficial for our students. Plus sensory bins allow for some fine motor skills practice along with differentiated academics. Here are some of our favorite spring sensory bins!
Spring Sensory Bins
This bin is made with black beans, plastic carrots, and carrot letter cards. The plastic carrots are from Dollar Tree (Walmart also has them!). The carrot letter cards are from our Tops And Bottoms center resource! To differentiate this center, students can work on letter recognition or beginning sounds.
Another fun carrot sensory bin is our carrot sight words sensory bin!
For this sensory bin, we used pasta that we colored green, orange, and yellow. To dye pasta, we use food coloring and rubbing alcohol. The sight words are from our Carrot Sight Word resources. We cut the top off the carrot. They decode the word, find the match, and write the word.
These sensory bins are perfect for spring and Easter!
This bin uses glittery foam eggs from Dollar Tree and plastic fuse beads from Amazon. CLICK HERE!
The eggs are from our Crackin’ Eggs resource. Students can work on letter recognition or beginning sounds.
This bin uses Easter basket grass. We wrote sight words on plastic eggs. Students decode the word, spell the word and write the word and find the match to complete the egg.
This bin also uses the pastel fuse beads. The bunnies are actually eggs or candy containers from Oriental Trading. Inside of the eggs is a paper with a picture of a CVC word. Studetns open the egg, say the word, segment the sounds and write the word. So yes, even your sensory bins can be aligned to the science of reading and can help make SOR fun and easy!
This is a math sensory bin where students work on addition! This bin is filled with dyed macaroni noodles. The bunnies are our Glittery Peeps FREEBIE!
And finally, here’s a fun sensory bin for the book Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs!
For this bin, we dyed pasta and rice blue and added some plastic food. The food is Amazon! The letter cards are FREE! Just click on the image below.
NOTE: THE FOOD AND LETTERS DO NOT GO TOGETHER. THE PLASTIC FOOD IS SIMPLY PART OF THE SENSORY BIN. THE LETTERS ARE FOR LETTER RECOGNITION OR BEGINNING SOUNDS.
