This weeks #touchittuesday sensory bin is a mega magnet bin . We are learning about items that stick to magnets and our letters. This is a super simple bin that can be put together in minutes. All you need is magnetic letters, rice, and a large magnet.
This sensory bin will give your child plenty of letter fun! They will become familiar with their letters while learning that not every item you have sticks to a magnet, such as the rice in the bin.
Introduce the letters to your child by teaching them each letter.
Sound out each letter with your child
For children that already know their letters and letter sounds, begin teaching them sight words by pulling out letters and laying them on the counter to make words
If your child knows how to spell their name have them use the magnet to pull out the letters in their name
Sensory Bin Alternatives:
Fill your bin with various items that stick to the magnet. (Example pipe cleaners, magnetic counters, etc.)
Add more items to the bin that don’t stick to the magnet to teach your child that everything doesn’t stick to magnets. (Example Pom poms , foam shapes, toy animals, etc.)
Come back next week for more sensory play fun!
