• This year a new "sesnsory pathway" was installed in the hallway by the Gym and Music room. A sensory path is a colorful, creative and playful way for kids to build sensory pathways, connections in the brain that are responsible for sight, touch, sound, etc., which enable kids to complete complex, multi-stage tasks. A sensory path is a great way for kids to develop motor skills like balance, eye-hand coordination, and spatial awareness. In addition to helping kids become aware of their own senses, sensory play also functions as an excellent “brain break.” High-intensity activities like a sensory pathway get the blood pumping, helping children to sit still and focus for longer periods of time in the classroom.
