Fall sensory bin and small world play for kindergarten. Make your literacy center hands-on and fun with these engaging centers.
As we move into the fall season, I have set up a fall-inspired sensory bin and small world play center. I love this time of the year, the colours and the changes happening outside are so inspiring for our kinders!
Fall sensory bin
We are hoping to inspire our students to sort items, or search for sight words in our sensory bin.
This year, our students love working in our sensory bin. We allow 2 students at a time to be at this center, and it is always full. I hope they are as excited about this new one! I wrote blog posts: How to Use Sensory Bins and 7 Non-Food Sensory Bin Fillers. Check them out if you want to learn more about how I use sensory play and get more ideas.
The filler is dried green and yellow split peas (I bought these 3 years ago and I have been able to reuse it every year!), and I added acorns and leaves to make it feel like fall. The sight word leaves are from my Falling Leaves literacy pack.

Our small world play center is going to have students work on letters and their sounds. I hope they enjoy using all the natural materials to create their own letter trees. These letter leaves are also included in the Falling Leaves literacy pack.
