Sensory Tables

A sensory table is a great way for kindergarteners to learn how to independently explore the world around them, problem-solve, develop creativity, and refine conversational skills. Thanks to the PTO's Links to Learning Grant, the kindergarten team now has one. Sensory tables demand fine motor skills as students have to use their hands to interact with objects. They'll play with whatever is on the table. They will handle balls, pour sand, and grasp spoons. Children learn through their senses. Sensory tables improve children's sense of touch, which helps them perceive their environment accurately. Exposure to a variety of textures improves children's development of fine motor skills. The tables can also help to develop social skills, emotional regulation, and manage classroom behaviors. Sensory tools are also very helpful for improving focus and attention.
