This month the children were learning all about their senses.  They enjoyed using their sense of smell to smell various spices and fragrances.  They used their sense of hearing during various listening activities especially during our phonological awareness activities.  They used their sense of sight to describe items and also to help them with some construction and fine motor activities.  Water play and Orbeez were used as part of our sensory play to explore the sense of touch and we also had a mystery bag where the children had to describe what was in the bag using only their sense of touch.  Of course we topped off of our learning when we tasted various fruits during our lunchtime and a yummy bun as a treat to explore the sense of taste.  The children also used their senses to explore some Autumn materials that were gathered by their classmates.
