Our students love to explore sensory bins, but they can be used for so much more than just a reinforcer. Here are 5 different ways you can integrate your sensory bin into your lessons and school day.
Interactive books combined with the sensory bin = GOLD!!! If you aren’t using them together in your classroom, you are missing out! My students love it when I hide the interactive book pieces in the sensory bin. Here, we are using one of the adapted books from our Fire Safety Interactive Books set.
We also used our math interactive book with the sensory bin. Students had to find the corrent amount of pieces to make the set. This book is from our Halloween Interactive book set.
Add the sensory bin into any lesson targeting matching. Here, students had to pull a picture from the sensoy bin after we read the book from our weather unit. Some students simply had to match the picture card to the correct page in the book. Other students had to label what was going on before matching. Super easy to differentiate with the same materials this way!
