Sensory Paths for Developing Gross Motor Skills

It was a rainy day at Independence Center for Early Learning. They didn't let that stop them from having fun and using their physical energies to develop some gross motor skills! This was done via making sensory paths.

What is a sensory path?

A sensory path is a setup where students need to follow directions on the floor to get across a room in the manner designed by the teacher. These, "Paths," challenged children to do things like jump, move sideways, jump like frogs, and all other kinds of activities in an effort to work on their gross motor skills. There were sensory paths that require extra thinking too, like ones that asked children to step where it made words or would solve a math problem. All the kiddos did a fantastic job with the sensory paths and had a lovely time developing their gross motor skills whilst thinking hard for the challenges.
