This week we continued our theme on The Five Senses by focusing on our hearing. We read Tap Tap Boom Boom by Elizabeth Gluemle and enjoyed acting out rain storm sounds from the story with our bodies and with instruments.
We also went on a listening walk around the school to identify sounds using our sense of hearing. We used new vocabulary such as loud, quiet, soft, silent and also learned about sign language.
We created instruments in the Art Center with recyclable materials to compare sounds with real instruments.
The children discovered many innovative ways to use familiar materials to create their instruments!
Next week we will be focusing on our senses of taste and smell. We will be tasting and smelling many different things to compare and describe them.
