During the month of October, The Joan Snow Pre-K Center students had a great time learning the “My Five Senses” Unit of Study. Students took part in “5 Senses of Fall”. Student’s used their sense of touch to feel the outside and inside of a pumpkin as well as create their own pumpkin play dough. Students used their sense of smell by using pumpkin spice seasoning for their play dough. Students used their sense of sight to make their own “5 sense pumpkin” by creating unique and fun faces on their pumpkins. Students used their sense of sight and touch to play the game “pin the leaf on the tree.” Students explored their sense of hearing by creating music using different instruments during our Character Day Parade.  Lastly, the students explored their sense of taste by tasting salty, sweet, sour, and bitter snacks during our Character Day Party. We had a fun filled month of hands-on learning and exploring! They are looking forward this month’s Unit of Study “All About Us.”
