Alphabet Sensory Bin

This has been in the making since May.  I actually bought the pasta on sale back in April or May.  I colored over 5 lbs. of the pasta in May using Wilton gel food coloring.  I've been purchasing, finding, copying things to go in to the bin since then.  We do Letter of the Week so I just thought this would enhance the learning since I made the Alphabet sounds treasure box last year.  I got the idea for this sensory box from Stephanie at Playing House.  This is the base sensory box and then i can add/change things to it for each letter using things from our alphabet sounds treasure box and also items i've picked up specifically for our Alphabet sensory bin!

So I'll take think from my Alphabet sounds box and put them into the alphabet sensory box when we are doing that letter!

Autumn Fall spelling - alphabet disk pages

I made the wooden alphabet disks (bottle cap letters) like confessions of a homeschooler talks about on her blog.  Since I took the time to make them, I try to use them as much as possible.  With that in mind, I took some of the words from the Thanksgiving based preschool pack I've gotten off the internet and put them to use in the following pages for Naters to work with

Thanks for looking!
Just click on the images if you want to download them to add them into your teachings this month!

Thanksgiving sensory tub, Thanksgiving sensory bin November 2011

Here is the Thanksgiving Bin that I put together for Naters this year.  Normally I do little piles of things.  This time, I put down the layer of popping corn, then I put down a layer of acrylic beads (leaves, pumpkins, & acorns).  Then a layers of some wooden beads, then sprinkled with sparkling poms poms, real acorns,  a giant amber jewel, some silk leaves, and a wooden bowl and spoon!  The popping corn was bought at Aldi's, and all the other stuff was purchased at (JoAnn's with 40-50% coupons, Michael's with a 40-50% off coupons or Pat Catan's).  I am lucky enough to live close to the craft stores and can stop by after work and use a coupon quick!
