How to make Sensory Bag for Child Sensorimotor development


Hello Room 107 Families,

WOW! What a great week of school! The students completed another full week of school (except for Thursday) AND we had our first Parent Meeting of the year! It was a great success! Thank you all for your participation and cooperation this week as we continue to work together to give your child a successful school year.

At our Parent Meeting, we talked about Social-Emotional Development. We talked about what Social-Emotional Development is, as well as strategies to help your child with their development at home. One way we did this was by creating sensory bags. We made these bags together using these three ingredients:

  • Hair gel
  • Sequence/sparkles
  • Beads

We are looking forward to the next Parent Meeting on Thursday, January 13.

Next Week

  • Monday, October 18-Thursday, October 21: Full day of school 8:15 AM-3:00 PM

Parent University

What is Parent University? Parent University is a fun event to attend with your child! You will meet other preschool teachers from the district, families within the community, and play fun activities with your child! More information will follow.

  • If your child will be absent, please call the classroom (313) 827-8067.

What Did We Learn About This Week?

We learned about letter L this week! The children practiced making letter L in many ways, such as using popsicle sticks and Play-Doh. The children wrote about things that start with letter L in their writing journals.

Fun Activity Idea

Looking for a fun activity to do with your child? Go for a walk with your child and find some sticks. When you get home from your walk, practice making the letter L with the sticks your child found!
