“Lorax” Sensory Rice Bin

posted in: Literacy, Sensory | 0

Susan, our head teacher, made a fun connection to “The Lorax” during our study of Dr. Suess.  The colored rice started out looking very “Cat in the Hat”-like, with the red and white stripes.  Of course that didn’t last long, but the kids still loved the red and white rice.  We included straws and pom-poms to make “Truffula Trees”.  Include small pom-poms for “seeds” to plant some more trees in the rice!

Be sure to read the book “The Lorax” before introducing the sensory bin.  It’s a great way to make a connection to literature and to jump start the kid’s imaginations!
