Five Senses – Sense of Smell & Touch Activity

I made these Sense of Smell Swatches and Sense of Touch Boards last year for a early years class I was teaching. They were used as part of our Five Senses Unit. They were a hit! The kids loved to feel and smell the different boards and swatches as it gave them hands-on tactile objects to explore and manipulate.

Back to School Survival Kit - Ideas for the Beginning of the School Year

This activity is fun for the beginning of the school year. Students try to find something in the classroom for each letter of the alphabet! Too fun!

Twitter door- have a laminated strip for every child and they get time to update status about something they learned, liked or happened during school that day! Gets them writing and ties in something they're probably already interested in!

Filling the Frame with Learning: Week 16

Really like this idea. After a student has completed reading a book. Have them create an arrow with the book title and/or something that represents the book. Then, have the students place it on a pole to point to where the book is located.
