Sensory Table Ideas!

This link will take you to a great list of ideas for your sensory table. In my classroom, the sensory table is a center choice all year. I switch out the contents about every 2 weeks. I store the materials in a tower of tubs. Now I need to make a master list of sensory table contents that match my curriculum!


This looks like a great resource from Amazon.

If you have ideas that work great in your classroom, please share!

Happy Teaching,

  1. Patsi, thank you for linking those water table ideas! They're really very helpful. I do the same thing that you do, changing my water table every 2 weeks. Some things that weren't on the list that I put in my water table are little colored pom-poms (from a craft store - the kids use pincers to sort them by color) and beads/string (for patterning). I also love it when I can find letter beads so the children can make their names or their friends' names in the center. I find that when the beads are in the water table it's so much easier to find what you want than digging in a jar. I also just put up a picture on my blog about using DUPLOs in a water table. It's so easy, and there are so many different sets - it never becomes boring.

    I found your blog through Teacher's Notebook. I can't wait to see what you will be selling! I am also a National Board Certified Teacher and I have lots of freebies on my blog. It would be great if you can come and take a look! :)
