Berry Short Vowel Sensory Bin Activity

If you’ve followed my bins for any amount of time, you probably have noticed my love of these shiny black beans as sensory bin fillers. While I try often to switch out fillers, sometimes these little guys just work so perfectly. This bin is one of those times. Is it just me, or do they look like a bunch of strawberry seeds?! I love them!

Prepping this bin is as simple as can be! First, fill your preferred bin with the black beans. Then add the strawberry cards, and you’re ready to go!

Teacher Tip: Laminate the strawberry cards so that they are durable in the sensory bin and will hold up to repeated use!

This sensory bin activity includes strawberry picture cards with corresponding matching mats and recording sheets.

All that’s left is for students to “pick the berries” and match the cards to their correct spot on the matching mats or color their recording sheet.

But this activity has even more options for play that allow for plenty of differentiated instruction!

To use this sensory bin activity, students “pick the berries" and color the correct vowel or word on the recording sheet.

Kids can also sort strawberries by their short vowel sound and then place them with the correct basket.

That’s 5 different ways to use this sensory bin activity! With all of those options, I like to introduce the activity in a small group first. Then, I have my kids work on a different version themselves during center time.

However you choose to organize your practice, I’m sure your kiddos are going to LOVE this bin!
