Letter A Sensory Bin:
Through this letter recognition activity, your pre-readers will practice identifying and differentiating between lowercase letter a and capital letter A.
Adding the letters to a sensory bin is a fun way to add more sensory play into your day and turns a simple sorting activity into an interactive one that your kids will love.
What Are Sensory Activities:
Sensory activities stimulate your children’s senses of touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. They also include movement and balance activities.
This type of play is important so your children can work on developmental skills such as language and fine motor skills. Sensory play also lets your kids learn to explore, investigate, observe, experiment, and much more.

To prepare this sensory activity, click on the button below. Then, download and print them on card stock or copy paper. I like to print my resources on card stock, because it is more durable. But, you can use copy paper too.
Next, laminate the bushels and apples so your kids can use this activity over and over. Then, cut out all of the pieces.
To set-up the sensory bin, fill a plastic container with green shredded paper and red pom poms to look like an apple tree. You can also use rice, noodles, sand, or any other filler. Finally, put the apples in the sensory bin.
How To Use The Letter A Sensory Bin:
For this sensory play activity, your kids will pick an apple out of the sensory bin and identify whether it is a capital or lowercase A. They will then put that apple in the correct apple bushel.
Your kids will continue sorting between capital and lowercase A’s until the bushels are full of apples.
This Letter A Sensory Bin is a hands-on letter recognition activity and fun way to add more sensory play into your day.
