Our Senses

The Pre-K class finished up with the five senses last week.  I did pretty much the same things that we did last year for all of the senses:  binoculars for sight, tambourines for soundfinger painting with and without salt for touch, our smelling station, and our taste day.

I just wanted to share the smelling station and taste day with you as they enjoyed them so much.

For smell I set up different smells on our "rainbow" table.  The children took turns smelling the items and deciding which smell was their favorite.  The smells I included were:  Dr. Pepper soap, deodorant soap, perfume, chocolate, a candle, bay leaves, rosemary, coffee, syrup, cinnamon, garlic, and vanilla.  To my surprise they all hated the deodorant soap!

For taste day I have parents send in a "special family recipe" to share with the class and we have a tasting party.  We got some great stuff this year:  pizza, quesadillas, zucchini bread, banana bread, chocolate chip bread, chocolate chip cookies, humus with carrots, green pasta, cantaloupe, potatoes, and a fruit and veggie dish.  They were really good about trying the different things and boy were we stuffed!

Pre School is one of the best choice we have made for them as they love going to school. It is a wonderful experience for kids. Preschool is good for kids. Thanks for sharing the Post. Nursery School In Chennai
