In a 👻 Halloween spirit, today, we are exploring a black bean sensory bin filled with Halloween inspired objects. Sensory bins have been my children's favorite activity, and today, I am adding a little math twist: Adrian has to find and retrieve all the objects, sort and count them, and find a corresponding numeral for each group. Finally, he has to arrange the numerals in the order of progression from one to ten. (As a control of error: make sure that you have just enough objects for each numeral.)
After having received enough sensorial stimulation with his hands, Adrian loved placing his head in the beans, burring deep into them.
When Julia came home from school, she immediately dove herself into the bin!
A final result: all objects are out of the bin, counted and arranged in order with the corresponding numerals next to them.
