Benefits of Sensory Paths
The sensory paths give students a chance to spend a few minutes of their school day walking, jumping, bouncing and “pushing themselves through their distractions”. Experts say sensory paths can also help students develop motor skills, including balance, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness
. They add that sensory play can encourage children to explore and investigate, allowing them to refine their thresholds for sensory information, helping their brains create stronger connections to sensory information and learn which are useful and which can be filtered out.
A sensory path is a series of guided movements for kids to follow, shown by markings on the ground or walls. As students follow the path and complete the movements, they work off excess energy and develop their gross motor skills. The various movements on a path are often designed to engage different parts of the body and brain, from frog hops to spins and wall pushes. You’ll find sensory paths in school hallways or on playgrounds, from pre-K through middle schools. Teachers often use sensory paths as their kids walk through a hallway between activities. (Yes, you really can train a group of kids to do this quietly!) These paths can be especially effective for students who experience frustration, anger, or another sensory overload during a learning activity. Sending them out to the hall to work off some of those emotions can help them re-focus when they return to their desk.
Sensory paths benefit all students. Sensory Corridors (sensorycorridors.co.za) cites four important sense areas of child development that can be addressed with sensory paths: proprioceptive (pushing, jumping), vestibule (hopping, jumping, shifting weight), tactile, and vision. Additionally, students utilizing sensory paths are more alert, stay focused longer, and have calmer demeanors.
