Trying to decide on what theme units to include in your home preschool this year?
A 5 senses theme unit is a great one to include at any time of the year, but I’ve always loved introducing it towards the beginning.
With our littlest of learners already so curious about their own bodies and the world the around them, giving them ample opportunities, right at the start of the year, to explore and learn through the use of their multiple senses, just seems to get our year started off on the right foot.
When I first started planning our this year’s themes, I knew I wanted to include a 5 senses unit that would not only teach what each of the senses could do, but that would also be a lot of fun.
This printable my five senses cut and paste activity was able to accomplish both of those goals all while quickly and easily introducing our new unit!
This activity couldn’t be any simpler and if you’re looking for a quick way to introduce the senses before diving in and exploring with each of them, this printable is the perfect way to do it!
On the first page, you’ll find a picture of a boy with lines pointing to each of the body parts associated with the 5 senses. At the end of each line is an empty box.
On the second page, you’ll find those same size boxes but each is filled with a simple sentence to tell your child where it should go.
Have them practice those scissor skills as they cut out each of the five boxes and then as you read the sentences together, have your child determine which sense each sentence belongs to and paste it into its appropriate place.
When you’re all done, you’re ready to start using that sense of smell or that sense of touch to explore and learn all about the world around you!
