User Reviews

Beyond the Sensory Table: Classroom Strategies for Sensory Play

"I especially like the information about the three hidden senses and strategies for incorporating those into my toddler classroom. I will also give some more thought to whether there is sometimes too much auditory stimulation."
"All of the detailed examples and directions as well as the guides and sources provided to incorporate certain activities, like creating sensory bottles, within one's own classroom were very helpful."
