Morning Tubs – 5 Senses

Do you need 5 Senses Morning Tubs for your preschool or kindergarten class? Morning tubs are often used as students are coming in and settling in for the day. They engage kids while attendance is being taken, homework folders are being opened and checked, and those types of daily tasks. Morning tubs are great for a couple of reasons.

  1. Building Independence: Kids are able to work on their own or in small groups at their table to use their bin(s). It encourages them to self-start and learn/play on their own.
  2. Socialization: Morning tubs give kids a chance to work together in small groups. They get to share pieces, solve problems together, and even just talk, play, and learn for a few minutes with a couple of their tablemates.
  3. Creativity and Play: Creativity is something we can build and increase by spending time working on it. Morning tubs are a perfect way to introduce a little more play and freedom into learning rather than traditional worksheets or morning work that kept kids busy but did not encourage creativity and play.

  1. Hi, I purchased this and am excited to try it. I did just notice that the ‘pop it’ letters are all lower case. I have three year olds and would LOVE to have these ‘patterns’ in capital letters. Is that an option?
