Hello Awesome Families! We are missing all of your children's faces and voices! Boyer is such a great space for creativity and learning, but we can have plenty of fun at home too. Check out these ideas from our educators. (If you have not scheduled a Virtual Visit with your team, it's simple! Learn more here.)

 

READING

I Hear a Pickle by Rachel Isadora:

This short story is a fun way to talk about our senses! Practice talking about what you sense in your environment at home. What do you hear when you are reading together? What do you see? You can also work on talking about body parts that are associated with each sense.

My Five Senses by Aliki:

This book is a great introduction to our five senses. While reading this book together, try talking about things you like and don't like. Talk about different tastes and compare and contrast (e.g. "Lemons are sour, ice cream is sweet!"). You can talk about your favorite colors that you see, favorite foods, etc. Although we all use our senses, we experience these senses differently. This gives us an opportunity to think about others' preferences, as well as our own!

MUSIC

Join teacher Kimberly as she sings about the five senses and the body parts that go with them!
FINE MOTOR

Recycle your containers and turn them into sensory bins! This Swiffer container makes a perfect mini sensory bin filled with rice and an assortment of monsters and spiders. Have your child sort the toys by type or color, or challenge them to exercise their fine motor skills by using tongs to pick up the toys. Using tongs requires problem-solving skills and fine motor strength while sorting games target a child’s visual discrimination skills.

ART

Tap into multiple sensory experiences with scented paint in this process-based art project! Help your child add strawberry, orange, or lemon extract to Crayola paint and then mix with a brush or spoon. Replace paint with yogurt if you are worried about the paint going into your child’s mouth. Let your child touch, smell and look at the paint. They can create handprints, footprints, or explore the paint with a brush! Don’t forget to talk about the paint’s properties with your child… Is it wet or dry? Bright or dull? Slimy or fuzzy? Let us know if you think of other flavors or scents to add into your project!
PS. As we face this pandemic, philanthropic support is more crucial than ever! Gifts of all amounts will make a significant impact. Please consider making a gift today to help meet the most urgent needs of our Boyer community.
