Do your students love holiday themed activities as much as mine do? This Heart Letter Match Sensory Bin is also one of their favorites for Valentine’s Day! I love this sensory play activity because my students are matching letters and developing their fine motor skills.
Heart Letter Match Sensory Bin:
- Sensory Bin
- Sensory Bin Filler
- Heart Letter Match Puzzles
This Valentine’s Day activity is easy easy to set-up for your students. Simply, put some sensory bin filler such as tissue paper, colored rice, or colored beans into a plastic container. For our heart sensory bins, I used pink, purple, and red shredded paper that I bought at the dollar store. I also added mini heart erasers that I ordered from Amazon. Next, cut the heart letter puzzles apart and place them in the sensory bin.
How To Play:
During morning tub time or literacy centers, your students will select the hearts halves out of the sensory bin and match the letters to form a heart.
You can easily differentiate this activity to meet the needs of all your learners too. You can have your students work on matching capital letters to capital letters, lowercase letters to lowercase letters, capital letters to lowercase letters, or mix them all together. You can focus on a few letters a time, the letters in a student’s name, or just the vowels.
This heart themed letter recognition activity is fun for your students to work on independently or with a partner. It’s great for morning tubs, literacy centers, or as enrichment for your early finishers.
You students are sure to love playing with this Heart Letter Match Sensory Bin during your Valentine’s Day party or anytime this up-coming holiday season.
