I am working away on all unit my class will be covering my class will be covering at the start of the school year,
because every veteran teacher KNOWS how crazy the first month in Kindergarten can be.
Then, we talk about our 5 senses.
There is an image of the sense activity on the left, the actual sense in the middle,
and the part of our body we use on the right.
There is also a printable to follow up the activity as well as a writing prompt to elaborate on the topic at hand.
You can see the printable for “Not Our Senses or Our Senses” which is great for independent practice.
The printable in the back asks the student questions and gives them space to write in their answers.
They can draw in a picture to match OR they can use the images I provide.
One of the BEST features is the variety of charts and activity you can choose from.
And all the border colors MATCH for easy assemble and organization for the teacher.
After we cover what our senses ARE,
we break down each of our senses deeper.
There are two types of charts to use.
One of the chart covers our Sense of Hearing.
There is a blank version I use to project the chart onto my smart board,
then we fill in as a class.
There is also a chart we use to discuss what we HEAR.
I love this charting because we have a chance to talk MORE about what we hear and how.
I like the chart options because some of our students have more knowledge or less knowledge about hearing.
This allows you to pick what is best for the needs in your class.
We also take time to do a pocket chart sorting activity
I have cards with loud and quiet on them.
We can first sort the things we hear,
then we sort them by how loud or quiet we hear.
There are two cut an sort printables as well as a writing prompt.
Once discusses how we hear to learn.
Another cut and sort for loud and quiet.
This day covers our sense of sight. a
There are charts, sorting activities, and printables.
Here is a look at the chart options.
One chart is for “Our Sense of Sight” and comes with a blank chart as well as a completed chart.
The other chart is for “We Can See.”
There are TONS of pocket chart sorting pieces with this topic as well.
These printables are a great way to support the classroom learning.
Here is a smooth and rough sorting sheet as well as a hot and cold sorting sheet.
And of course you get a writing prompt activity as well.
(Did you notice the sorting pieces MATCH the diagram!?)
And check out this set of printables.
There is a taste sort. I did not include bitter since many of the bitter things
our students don’t eat or would be hard to bring to school to taste in bulk.
Our last sense is the sense of smell.
There are two sets of charts.
And TONS of sorting pieces.
You can sort by senses as well as by good and bad smells.
Since teachers always want to expand vocabulary,
we use the terms pleasant and foul for smells.
There are also matching good and bad cards so you can chose what is best for your students.
No topic could be compete without printables.
The printables has a second version that uses the terms “good and bad”
instead of “pleasant and foul” in case that helps you.
I know you will love this pack!
As always EACH section is color coded and so easy to prep,
organize, and use.
