I try to incorporate sensory activities in my preschool classroom that go along with the weekly themes. This past week the students were learning about community helpers including firefighters, police officers, doctors and nurses and dentists.
While learning about firefighters, the students explored some fire coloured paints which they then sprayed down with blue watercolour . They had a lot of fun investigating fingerprints when learning about police and discovered colour mixing using syringes and watercolour paints when learning about doctors and nurses. They also got an opportunity to play around with some giant teeth (made from the bottom halves of water bottles) and brushed some yellow and brown paint stains off using a tooth brush and tooth paste to learn more about dentists.
