Learning About Our Five Senses - Pre-K 9-3

Posted by [email protected] on March 10, 2022 at 4:45 PM

This week we have been learning about the 5 senses: Sight, Hearing, Taste, Touch, and Smell. We learned what each one does and how they are important. We practiced using each of these senses. For example, we talked about different things we tasted and if they were sweet, sour, salty, or bitter. We smelled different things such as spices, paint, etc and said what each one smells like. We touched different objects and talked about what each one feels like. We also learned that if someone is blind, they learned to use their hearing, cane, dogs, etc to help them out in the real world, we learned that if we lost our hearing, that we rely on lip reading and sign language. We even learned some signs because Ms. Michelle knows some sign language! We learned that Helen Keller was deaf and blind but she was a famous author and advocated for people who had disabilities.

We learned how to count by 2's and we learned what numbers were odd/even. We did some art projects this week as well. We drew something we see in our classroom, we did an ear collage, we also did a texture collage, and we made something out of clay. It was fun but some of the children said that the clay was the hardest to work with because it wasn't as soft as playdoh. We will be painting it once the clay dries. We did musical carpet using carpet squares, exercised to Jack Hartman's "Counting to 100" and "Counting to 100 by 2's".

It was a very busy week using our five senses and the children learned a lot and I think they appreciative to have these senses because not every one has all 5 senses.
