I am so excited to announce that we officially kicked off our weekly Kindergarten Enrichment program yesterday! Our first class was all about using our five senses to explore nature. Using sensory bags and smell canisters, we explored our sense of sight, touch, hearing, and smell. We even used our sense of taste to enjoy our morning snack!
After snack we went on a sensory scavenger hunt to put our senses to the test. On the hike we found slimy slugs and millipedes under logs. We stopped to smell the sweet aroma of flowers and listen to the songs of birds. We even found a large fuzzy caterpillar.
After finishing our scavenger hunt hike, we stopped at Riverbend's Stone Story Circle and spent some time writing in our journals about our morning's discoveries.
What a great first day of class!
