Students are hopping, skipping and jumping their way down the hall using two interactive sensory hallways at Montgomery C. Smith Elementary School.
It’s as simple as walking down a normal hallway but along the way, there are quick activities that encourage more movement and coordination. As students pass through the sensory hallways they can complete any or all of the activities, including a hopscotch board and wall push-ups.
The sensory paths help students get some energy out if they’re feeling a little restless and need a quick break from class or if they finish their work early. Sensory hallways also add extra exercise throughout the day and help children develop motor skills like balance, hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness.
The sensory paths are located in the kindergarten and first grade hallways, and three more sensory hallways are planned for other locations.
