Cow Visual Discrimination File Folder Game

Here’s a fun file folder game, which can be used to help children sharpen their discrimination skills. Correctly matching up the cows will encourage children to learn how to recognize subtle differences between objects. The ability to do so, will aid children in every learning aspect of the classroom. I chose to use cows for my farm unit, but this concept can be adapted to fit any unit. I hope that your children enjoy this as much as mine have.

MATERIALS USED:

– File folder
– Our free cow template
– Color coding labels
– Construction paper
– Scissors
– Glue

Easter Sensory Bin

This Easter sensory bin assembly was completely effortless since we had so many cute goodies left over from our our 3D collage Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree hauls. This time around, colored rock salt was used as a base. You can find the tutorial on how to color rock salt, rice, and macaroni in our post here.

Oh, look who is making yet another appearance! We cannot get enough of the soft little chicks. The great thing is, is that even though this bin will contain many of the same items that the children will have used in their collages, they will be using them in totally different ways, creating new learning experiences.

MATERIALS USED:

– Any suitable container
– A batch of colored rock salt (tutorial here)
– Plastic eggs
– Plastic bunny eggs
– Small glitter eggs
– Colored buttons
– Chicks
– Easter grass
– Small baskets
– Small cups
– Ice cream scoop
– Sand rake
– Tweezers
