In Nursery we are well into our study of the 5 senses, and we are loving it! For sight we looked for missing objects, we did a walk around campus and we played the “I spy with my little eye” game. For hearing we played with instruments and we explored different animals sounds. For taste we tasted sour, salty and sweet food, and we read The very Hungry Caterpillar. Next week for smell we will smell different smelling foods and objects, such as chocolate, oranges, playdough and soap! And finally for the sense of touch, we will be playing at our sensory table full of dried beans, rice and pasta, as well as gooey shaving foam, and we will make letters with felt!
It is so exciting to explore our senses. Before we have our winter ski-week break, in order to wrap up this unit, we will be doing a fun activity with POPCORN. First we will hear the popcorn being made, then we will see it, touch it, smell it and finally we will eat lots of popcorn!
