Then we worked on the sense of sound. First we played a game of “Sound Bingo” with picture boards. As we listened to sounds on a c.d., the boys covered the pictures with tokens. Their favorite sounds were the motorcycle, fire engine and toilet flushing! We then played a game of “Hide and Seek” but only used our ears to find the person hiding. The boys LOVED this game and each had a turn hiding. What fun!
Next we worked on our sense of smell. We had several cups filled with different smells that the boys gave a whiff. They loved the smell of cinnamon and peppermint. The disliked, VERY MUCH, the smell of soy sauce.
Next the boys used their sense of taste. THIS WAS A FUN ONE! The boys tasted limes (E’s favorite), popcorn, candy and unsweetened cocoa powder. The boys disliked VERY MUCH the cocoa powder. Teacher W has never laughed so hard at Blue Preschool. Then we had trail mix, popcorn, limes and water for our snack.
We had a fun day at Blue Preschool. We also talked about the color yellow, the letter “S”, the number 5 and the shape of our hand (to remember how many senses we have). The boys were so much fun and great sports with today’s lesson.
