Enjoying the Sensory Flag
Visited the high school yesterday where the creative teacher has placed the sensory tent with all the lights and streamers for students to view and explore. One student, who usually is only attentive to shiny materials, was seated near the "sensory flag" and was moving his hand across its surface, exploring the sewn-on felt leaves, silk leaves and other items attached to the scarecrow flag. Lots of active movement going on!
