Swansea, SC - As the second week of school rang in, students at Lexington Four’s Early Childhood Center were welcomed with a new sensory path.
Sensory paths are colorful, creative and playful ways for children to build connections in the brain that are responsible for the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch. These connections enable young learners to complete complex, multi-stage tasks. A sensory path is a great way for children to develop motor skills such as balance, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness.
In addition to helping build awareness of the senses, a sensory path also functions as an excellent “brain break”. Brain breaks are high-intensity activities that get the blood pumping, which in turn can help improve focus for longer periods of time.
ECC families will have the opportunity to check out the new path during the first week of Promoting: Academics, Learning and Success or PALS, September 23-27.
