From the Bright Horizons - Citibank Family Center in Sioux Falls, SD comes this exploration of nature in their infant room. They took many walks to gather nature items like rocks, pinecones, sticks, pine needles, etc. Once the class was done exploring, they displayed the items in burlap fabric from the ceiling in their room.
Here’s an idea from an infant teacher at the Superior Children’s Center, a Bright Horizons center in Tyler, TX. She created a kicking wall for their younger infants. Of course they love to kick and feel the leaves! This idea can also be used with many materials, such as bubble wrap, paint, or yarn.
This sensory board was made by an infant teacher at the Superior Children's Center in Tyler, TX. The different materials, textures and colors make it fun to look at and feel. This board is so versatile, it often moves from classroom to classroom giving many children a chance to touch and feel!
