October is here! And we started working with “The five Senses” “Los Cinco Sentidos” theme. We also introduced the children to the fall season through projects where they identified the autumnal season. During this theme of sensory experiences your child will identify, compare and classify items as they investigate the world around them. We are going to explore the five senses of touch, sight, smell, taste and sound during this month. Therefore, we started this week with the sense of sight. We worked with a fantastic book, “Brown Bear, brown Bear, What Do You See? / Oso Café, Oso Café, Que Es Lo Que Tu Ves? The narrator of this book asks various animals what they see with the response usually being another animal, the respondent is then asked what they themselves see, and the process is repeated. It features a
Red Bird/Pájaro Rojo,
Yellow Duck/ Pato Amarillo
Blue Horse/Caballo Azul
Green Frog/rana Verde
Purple Cat/Gato Morado
White Dog/ Perro Blanco
Black Sheep/ Cordero Negro
Goldfish/ Pez Dorado
The kiddos were fascinated with this wonderful book, and learning our new vocabulary. In addition, we were working in different activities that helped them to build up their fine motor skills. We did projects such as a sequencing hat Brown Bear, Brown Bear/ Oso Café, bear puppets, and autumn handprint tree.
