Tactile learning with sand, water and sensory tables is important to preschool education
Preschool is a time for learning through exploration. Sensory tables help teachers incorporate this active learning in their classrooms. A sensory table is essentially a table with a height suitable for early learners that has a large tub on the top. This tub varies in depth and can contain any number of things from water, sand, marbles, magnets, plus so much more. Students learn with their hands, digging through sand to find buried treasures, testing what floats in water and how magnets work. The learning possibilities are limited only by imagination. Choose a sensory table with wheels to easily move inside or out or one with drawers for convenient storage. Many have multiple stations for preschoolers to work at.
