Curious kids and caring adults create a world of kindness

The Sensory Explorer Show

The Sensory Explorer Show is a web-series created and produced by Sarah W. Selznick.  The show is designed for children ages 3-6 and their teachers/caregivers.  In each episode Sarah the OT and the curious explorers play with one sensory activity and use the sense-o-meter to help them figure out how they feel! Through use of visuals and modeling by caring adults, the series promotes:

  • Sensory awareness

  • Body awareness/ Motor skills

  • Play skills

  • Self-regulation

The show is designed to be an interactive series for parents, caregivers, teachers and therapists to use along with their child. The series can be used as a stand alone activity, as a supplement to your class lesson plan, or as it's own curriculum to teach sensory-emotional-motor vocabulary with adjoining interactive activities.

 

 To improve interaction there are worksheets designed for each episode and a            sense-o-meter visual that you can print and use along with the web-series explorers

 

REMEMBER: all activities require very close adult supervision for safety!!

The Sense-O-Meter is a visual tool that helps us figure out how we are feeling, and helps us explain to others how we feel.  Use this to help you better understand your body and what activities make you feel at center.
