My five senses 👀
Young children learn naturally with all their senses. The five senses of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste are the primary means that children use to gain new knowledge. The five senses work together to give them a total picture of their experiences. Learning takes place when the mind is able to put information from all these senses together, and make a connection with our past experiences. As the children use their senses to gain information, it makes their learning more meaningful.
For this week, our children were engaged in learning about their five senses. The toddlers did craft work that emphasized on the 5 senses that we have.
They also did a painting of the fishes in the sea, using their hand prints. The children enjoyed themselves with such sensorial play using paints.
The older children were involved in creating a sensorial board for their DOW corner. They were thrilled to feel and touched the different texture of the materials brought into the class.
As Chinese New Year is approaching, the children were also assigned to help their class teachers in putting up some of the festive decorations for their classrooms. Let’s take a look at some of our CNY decorations.
The fire crackers, that were made by the little ones, were simply amazing. Our children couldn’t be less excited about the upcoming CNY celebrations in schools.
