My name is Kristine Pasker and I am a senior at UNI finishing my degree in Elementary education and my minor in Special Education Strat I. Sensory is a huge thing to take into account when doing anything. First and foremost, make sure you know the sensory needs of your students. You cannot accommodate if you don't know what to accommodate. Second, I would just make sure what you are doing isn't going to be too overwhelming. Sensory means more than touch. If there is too much going on in the room, on the table/desks, etc. this can be problematic as students become overstimulated. Being someone who has ADHD this can sometimes be an issue for me as well. In saying that, I would make sure students know ahead of time what you are going to be doing/using so they themselves can prepare for what is going to happen. Perhaps the day before or a few days before (making sure to tell them each day prior and the day of.) This helps prepare their minds for what is going to happen and be there instead of being surprised causing internal anxiety and excitement. For those with light sensitivity, I would maybe make sure lights aren't too bright. For those with texture, make sure you have things that aren't too rough or too smooth. I am a weight and resistance person, so I like heavy things. For those with sound sensitivity, I would test things first to make sure the noise isn't going to be too bothersome. Check microscopes, light buzzing, marking squeaking, fernace humming, etc. Whatever you think could be minor can be a MAJOR thing to those with sensitivity to sound. I can hear anything and everything, so even the slightest sound can be distracting and annoying. Hope these ideas can help you in your future endevors.
