Do you find these show and tell posts useful?
I hope that they provide ideas for some of your school projects too.
Here are the older posts for a quick review:
This time the topic was: Introduction to sense organs. How each sense organ is useful?
The pictures were taken from a book we have. We photocopied them and cut them out to suit our charts. The main sentences are written in a larger font and the added facts are in a smaller font.
These A4 size charts are as usual kept simple for the understanding of the child.
Handwritten words seem to make my daughter happier so we are still continuing with those. 🙂
We also included some light information, the kids may find funny. For example.: Sneezing
The teacher can help.
Here are some ways, she could guide the child:
(1) Point to the picture of the sense organ and ask what is this?
(2) _____ help us to ____. For example: Eyes help us to see.
(3) Point to the other pictures and help the child to complete the sentences in the charts.
The charts are self-explanatory.
Added some touch testers here. We could add these for other sense organs too.
For taste, we could give them certain definitive taste items to taste, like lemon, sweets, Spicy etc.
Even for smell, we could give them different testers with unique fragrance or smells. We could try, an incense stick, a flower, toothpaste, mint candy, lemon and for a foul smell, a vegetable which has rotted.
For eyes, we could give different pictures of different sizes or even alphabets like we have for eye-testing. 🙂
Once you have covered these basic information, just open any book on human body which you might have at home and show them random pictures of different body parts, sense organs or explain any process in the most simple ways. (Note for me: First read the book myself!) 🙂
Hope you have enjoyed our simple and cute charts with your little ones.
