Free Printable Download: Teaching with the Five Senses Planner

Free Printable: Teaching with the Five Senses Planner
In the previous post, I wrote about how children need to learn using their five senses. This will make their learning more concrete and give them background knowledge.

To make it easier for parents and teachers in including as many activities using the five senses, I have made this planner.

How to use the planner:

1.  Write the topic to be taught in the middle circle.

2. Brainstorm activities that children could do using visuals, auditory, olfactory, taste and touch/manipulatives/kinaesthetic. Write them down in the relevant areas.

3. Select the best ones and write them into your program.

  6. Great resource.

    Its absolutely necessary to plan for all senses because of the different modes children learn through. When the teacher is able to connect with the right mode, the child learns effortlessly and is engaged and stays on task for longer.

    And this is definitely less stress for the teacher.

    1. We remember more when we can recall it through our senses.
