participated in a costume parade, ate some fun treats, and even took a math test!
terrible, I know. But their reactions made up for it!
I informed my students that a zombie had died in our class the previous night, and his parts were cut up and placed in our pumpkin buckets. Brave students were asked to place their hand in the bucket, without seeing what was inside, and describe what they felt. This is a fantastic way to promote sensory awareness, but I admit, my approach wasn't the greatest! :)
Brooke was the first brave student to stick her hand inside, and her immediate reaction was to scream!!!
Many kids do not like to touch weird things. It is actually a developmental step to tale part in sensory activities. At home, you can put some things in a bowl or bucket such as rice, beans, or cooked pasta and hid other objects for kids to fish through and find.
