Today we learned with corn starch. Corn starch is a great inexpensive sensory item. First we worked on scooping and spooning until that turned messy. If you child needs to work on using a utensil these type of activities provide some extra practice and also work on fine motor skills.
We used both a scoop and a spoon.
Once things started to get messy and Adeline wanted to put her hands in it we moved on to a sensory bin with corn starch and numbers. I have been teaching Adeline her numbers with flashcards but I like to reinforce everything with a game or activity of some sort.
One of my little tricks is, I love to find Scrabble games or Rummy O games at yard sales for a few cents. I love using the tiles for different learning activities. Today we used our Rummy O tiles to reinforce numbers.
Adeline enjoyed dusting for the tile to discover her number.
I admit we made quite a mess with this activity but it was fun.
