Our Five Senses Songs are a great way to introduce this concept to young children as they explore each sense with a song or a game.
They’re great for expanding young vocabularies and good for building the confidence to try new things. So much can be gained from sharing new experiences together.
Five Senses Songs – Smell
First we look at the sense of smell with a funny little song called ‘How Does A Red Rose Smell’? We’ve included 6 easy verses, but once kids get the idea, they’re only too happy to come up with their own suggestions – and they tend to like the ‘pongy’ ones the best of course!!
Five Senses Songs – Listening
This is a great way to encourage kids to really listen carefully and describe what they can hear. So it’s a great way to encourage engagement and increase the vocabulary. Visit the post for details of how to play the game and sing the little song.
