On May 3, create a Sidewalk Adventure in front of your residence for you, your family, and neighbors to enjoy!
Kong Academy has created a Sensory Integration Sidewalk project to encourage fun, movement, and learning while social distancing. We’re happy to partner with them to bring this awesomeness to our neighborhood!
We encourage everyone to turn a piece of the sidewalk into an opportunity for movement, education, and play!
What is a Sensory Integration Sidewalk?
A sensory integration sidewalk (SIS) is a path that is created to give interactive prompts for the participants to receive, organize, and use information to play and move in a structured way.
These types of pathways are designed to improve gross motor skills, balance, and proprioception as well as develop Executive Functions such as impulse control, working memory, and emotional regulation. It is also a fun way to teach a variety of subjects such as science, literacy, and mathematics!
All you need is sidewalk chalk or washable paint and some imagination and creativity!
