DIFFERENT TEXTURES SENSORY
DIFFERENT TEXTURES

TEXTURES, Touch and Feel.

We all know that kids love to get their mitts on just about anything lol. 🙂  So, what exactly can they feel? Well, if it’s

  • Wood – hard
  • Liquid – wet
  • Nail file – rough
  • Sellotape – sticky
  • Sweet wrapper – crinkly
  • Plastic – smooth
  • Cotton wool – soft / fluffy

Just to describe a few!

The more ways we allow students to interact with the materials we use in class, the better they learn. Hands-on activities encourage students to participate and interact to the fullest.

By handling, manipulating, and observing the different textures of objects, ESLs are able to use more than just language to help them construct meaning.

Interacting with the objects you present, helps them understand your lesson in a deeper way.

Get your kids to touch various objects and see if they can describe how they feel. Here is a short list of things that can be used for this exercise.

  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Dry beans
  • Fabric
  • Sand
  • Clay
  • Finger paints
  • Marbles
