Ideas for Use

Our 5 Senses - Suggestions for Use


  • IMMERSE YOUR CHILDREN IN WORDS...

  • GENERAL IDEAS FOR STORING AND USING THEME WORD CARDS

  • Classify words into the 5 different senses categories - use the 'see','hear','touch','taste','smell' word cards as category labels.

  • Use the word cards to label different objects around the room eg.... place the 'soft' card on the pillows etc...

  • Use with concept book 'I Have 5 Senses'

  • Make up some sentence strips - The _______________ feels ________________. The ______________ looks _______________.

  • Brainstorm and list all the things with certain characteristics - eg. Things which feel sticky.... Things which taste salty......

  • Make up a class book 'What feels soft?' Each child is given the strip - 'A ___________feels soft' and draws and writes a page for the book. (We will try and pop a concept book up for this soon!)

  • Play a game of 5 senses 'What am I?' - Use the words to describe an object - I look ___________, I taste ___________, I feel ____________, I smell ________________, I sound _________

  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities .

  • When not being used on a wall display, place them in labelled boxes (small wash powder boxes or yoghurt containers work well, or hanging pockets for continued 'grab and go' games and writing reference.

  • All the activities from '101 Fun Flashcard Activities' are fantastic with these Words ...... (DON'T FORGET TO UTILIZE THIS TERRIFIC RESOURCE EVERYDAY)

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
