SMELL: What did it smell like?
As children are exposed to different smells, they learn more about our environment. They will be able to distinguish between good and bad smells, comfortable and uncomfortable smells.
TOUCH : How did it feel?
Most touch activities involved the hands. Engaging their hands builds their fine motor skills, helping them learn how to do more for themselves, such as drawing and buttoning their coats.We focused on expanding their vocabulary helping them to describe what their were feeling.
SOUND: What noises did you hear?
Indoors and outdoors, there are many opportunities for children to engage their listening skills. We played an sound bingo.
TASTE: Did you like the taste?
Many events in a child’s life involve food. Sense of taste activities teach children that the sense of taste and smell are connected. We offered them 7 different foods to taste and their showed their likes and dislikes mainly with their facial expressions!
SIGHT: What is it you saw?
Sense of sight activities helps children learn about their eyes as they explore the world around them. We went for a walk to play “I spy” and in our room they experienced how the world looks like through coloured glasses.
In creative this week they explored their touch creating some textured collages, they talked about the flowers’ smell colouring a pot and adding flowers to it and at the end of the week they worked about face parts recognition and the sense linked to them.
We also have enjoyed exploring the new cars we received this week. It was fun to play with them in the different circuits created with some black paper and chalk…
Enjoy your weekend and see you next week with some more fun activities and a lot of role-playing 😉
