5 Senses

This week we began learning about our five senses.  Together we made a list of the senses and the body parts we use for each sense.  The beginning of the list was easy for us, we listed eyes for seeing, noses for smelling, ears for hearing, mouths for tasting, then we got stuck.  I gave the clue that we usually use our hands or fingers for the last one we needed to complete the list.  One boy raised his hand, waving it wildly, making "ooo, ooo, ooo" sounds at me.  Usually I like to call on students who are sitting quietly, waiting their turn, but this boy was sooo excited to share the answer with us, that I had to call on him.  He immediately shouted out "Tickling!"  While we had a good laugh at this, we decided to add touching as the last item on our list.  I love how we can have a good time while learning in Kindergarten!  Check out the picture of students showing their five senses by pointing to their body parts for each sense.    Below is also a copy of our newsletter for week 3.  Thanks for reading!
