There are so many fun and simple ways to work sensory play and sensory input into the school day – and guess what?
Sensory play and sensory input aren’t reserved for kids with Sensory Processing Disorder!
We all have our own unique sensory preferences and needs and we all invent our own little accommodations to meet these needs every single day. We twirl our hair while we’re concentrating on something. We bite our fingernails when we’re nervous. Or we fidget in our seats to keep ourselves awake during that long meeting at work.
Kids have these same needs and preferences. They may find subtle ways to meet these needs that are totally appropriate and acceptable in the classroom. Or, they may find some not-so-appropriate ways (e.g. chewing their shirts, touching others, pushing or crashing into people and objects). In any case, it’s always good to have a little “tool box” on hand full of ideas to pull from on any given day.
So today we’re bringing you 100 Sensory Strategies for the Classroom! We hope you like what you see and that these ideas inspire you to make your classroom an even more sensory-friendly space for kids!
If you like this freebie, you’re in luck, because we’re going to be offering an amazing deal on Sensory Processing 101 in April in celebration of our Autism and OT Awareness Month!
