Many times I have heard many people say that they hate math. We don’t want to pass that thinking on to our little learners. We want to foster a love of math and all things learning. The way we do that is by making learning fun and hands-on so the children are engaged! Thus the Black-Eyed Pea Sensory Bin!
Here’s what you need for exploring measuring tools:
Our sensory bin was a huge hit! The children loved running their fingers through the beans and feeling their smooth texture. There were loads of giggles as they poured the peas through the funnel and watched them stream out of the bottom. Learning and laughter is a success in my book!
As the children explored the sensory bin, we were able to talk more about the measuring tools we were using. We learned about 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup. We talked a little bit about the measuring spoons, but mostly focused on the measuring cups.
