Preschool Human Body Sensory Bin
I want to share with you this preschool human body sensory bin, which sound so weird when I type that. Playing and interacting with books makes them more memorable and exciting for kids. We are going to create a sensory bin for the book Parts by Tedd Arnold as we read it a second time.
Sensory bins are always exciting and fun to play with. Connecting it to the book will help our preschoolers comprehend the book better because they will be dissecting the parts of the book, recalling the details, and making connections.
Essentially with this sensory bin our preschoolers are working on two major comprehension skills, recalling details and making connections, in a hands-on and approachable way.
- Recall details from a text that was read aloud
- Make personal connection to text
- Use 5-senses to make observations
Be sure that you add them when they are referenced in the book.
- Yarn – Hair
- Cotton Balls – Stuffing
- Cheerios/ Corn Flakes – Skin
- Beans – (brains/boogers)
- Beans – Teeth
- Googly Eyes – Eyes
We used a party tray (from the Dollar Tree) to hold and organize our materials before adding our parts to the sensory bin.
