Installing Your Sensory Pathway Instructions.

Installing vinyl sensory pathways can be a fun and engaging way to add a sensory experience to your classroom or hallways space. Here are some general steps you can follow:

  1. Choose your desired sensory pathway. Consider the age range and abilities of the users, as well as the space available.
  2. Gather materials: You may need masking tape, a measuring tape, a squeegee. Most of our kits include squeegees.
  3. Prepare the surface: The surface should be clean, dry, and free of any debris. If necessary, sweep or power wash the area before starting.
  4. Apply Decals: Starting at one end of the pathway, apply adhesive to the surface, using the squeegee press the decals firmly to the surface.
  5. Place vinyl tiles: Place the vinyl tiles or strips onto the adhesive, making sure they are level and aligned properly.
  6. Allow adhesive to dry: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for drying time.
  7. Test the pathway: Once the adhesive is dry, test the pathway to make sure it is secure and safe for users.

Sensory Pathways Prepare Children to Learn at their Best!

A Higher Class Co. Sensory pathways in school hallways are designed to provide students with a quick break from their aca demic activities to engage in physical activity, sensory stimulation, and self-regulation. The pathways typically consist of a series of colorful and interactive stations, such as hopscotch squares, balance beams, and sensory walls, that students can engage with as they walk through the hallway.

There are several reasons why sensory pathways can be beneficial for students. First, they provide a healthy outlet for physical energy, which can help students focus better in the classroom. By engaging in physical activity during the school day, students can release pent-up energy and reduce restlessness, which can enhance their ability to concentrate and learn.

Second, sensory pathways provide a sensory-rich environment that can stimulate the senses and promote self-regulation. Students can engage with tactile surfaces, visual displays, and auditory cues that can help them regulate their emotions and stay calm and focused. By providing a structured sensory experience, the pathways can also help students develop sensory processing skills, such as visual tracking, spatial awareness, and fine motor skills.

Finally, sensory pathways can be a fun and engaging way for students to break up their day and reduce stress. By providing an opportunity for students to engage in physical activity and explore new sensory experiences, the pathways can help students feel more motivated, engaged, and enthusiastic about their learning.

One in five children has obesity today, according to current statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s why it’s so important to keep kids active, ensuring they get at least 60 minutes of exercise daily.

It’s never too early to teach kids about the importance of strength training. Not only will having more leg muscle prevent obesity, but it will also help kids perform better in their favorite sports.

Is Kindergarten Important?

Kindergarten gives children the opportunity to grow and develop through play

Though some think of kindergarten as a year of play, kindergartners work hard and learn a lot in a short amount of time. Teachers can no longer expect healthy five to six-year-old children, with all their energy and enthusiasm, to sit at their desks or to be quiet all day. Kindergarten gives children the opportunity to grow and develop through play — the way children learn best. It is a time for children to expand their love of learning, build knowledge, develop their ability to get along with others, and explore ways of reaching out to the world.
