I was recently browsing the Target Dollar Spot and checking out all of the awesome Halloween goodies.
An idea popped into my head when I saw some of the items, a Halloween sensory bin!
I grabbed some fun Halloween items (with all different colors, shapes, and textures) and then headed over to the grocery section of Target and found a cheap package of beans. I also found a plastic bin on sale (if I didn’t find one, I would have went to the Dollar store afterwards but I was pleasantly surprised with the cheap bin I found! My goal was a bin that would close to not attract bugs into my speech room!)
I found a plastic spoon in my house which completed my sensory bin! All that was left, a visual aid!
Now, my students can use their hands or the spoon to search for the different Halloween items. What goals do I plan to address?
- following directions
- answering questions
- expressing complete utterances
- pretend play
- turn taking
- and so much more!
