Curious Kitties: 5 Senses

on May 22, 2014

Right now, as we speak, there is a nonfiction book series on our body senses that has 6 books–yes, six. They actually made a book on intuition just so they could make six books in a series.

While I didn’t focus on intuition, I did do a program on the other, more scientifically based, senses for ages 2-5. Let’s see what I did!

Opening Song: Building Blocks Song

Tune: Hello Ladies
Hello __________ (first child in the circle)
Hello __________(second child in the circle)
Hello __________(third child in the circle)
Come build something with your blocks!
