At the end of our school year, me and the kids worked to split our schoolroom in half. We decided that we needed an area for the boys to get their energy out in the winter and an area where sensory motor skills could be worked on daily without mom having to worry about what might break in the process. I shared our new classroom HERE , and our old classroom HERE, so today I am revealing our Sensory Motor Room. There are still a couple projects that need to be finished up in order for the room to be completely finished, but enough has been done to be able to share it the way it is now.
The kids are welcome to use the sensory motor room whenever as long as the follow a couple pretty simple rules.
- You need to put all items used away, back where you found them when finished.
- The swing can only be used if Mom, Dad, or Serena are supervising to prevent injuries. Everyone that is not using the swing at the moment must stay a safe distance from the swing when its being used.
- To change out the swings ask Dusin, Mom, Or Dad for help
- Everyone must stay in the sensory motor room and not go and play in the school room, keep an eye to make sure the little boys are not playing in there as well.
- No food or drinks in the sensory motor room
This is a close up look at our fidget basket, inside are fidget balls, spikey balls, lip whistles, balloons, stress balls, etc… Everything but the lip whistles are great for the kids to fidget with while I am reading stories, or going over lessons. These fidget toys have been great for my kiddos who have a hard time sitting still while we are reading or doing some other quiet activity.
Here are some of our favorite sensory resources!
Here are a few different sensory motor rooms I have found around the internet. Looking at these sensory motor rooms is where some of my ideas came from. You can find more ideas on my Sensory Rooms Pinterest Board
