Adaptor Grants Home:
Teachers Network: Adaptor Grants: What Sense Does It Make?

Adapted By:
Melissa Moy

This is Ms. Moy's 17th year teaching the early grades. She has taught second grade, first grade, kindergarten, gifted kindergarten, and for the past two years, Pre-K.

P.S. 124
New York, NY



Modifications

I had to modify some of the activities and language about the five senses for my pre-k students. I included more oral language.

Instructional Objectives

Students will discover the connection between the five senses and the body parts used for each sense.

Students will develop oral language through repetition (especially for children with limited language skills).

Students will use Kidpix to publish drawing pieces about the five senses.

Students will create a Big Book on the five senses.


Technology Integration

Students will use Kidpix to create pictures about the five senses. Teacher will type their oral stories about the five senses onto their pictures.

Assessment

Teacher will listen to student responses to questions about the five senses and assess their pictures to see if concepts were understood.

Tips for Teachers

Introduce all five senses as a whole and connect them with their body parts. As the children get more comfortable with the language, individual senses can be added on with hands-on activities. I love to include songs in my units and I found some very useful ones in the following sites about the five senses:
