This past week the children explored their sense of touchtastesmellsight, and hearing. Let me show you what the children found in the “sense of taste” discovery center…

The children tasted different kinds of fruit such as apples, pears, oranges, peaches, and we also tried pickles.

Exploring new Flavors

Some of the children simply refused to taste a pickle. They thought that the pickles would be sour but we had bread and butter pickles. The children who did taste the pickles didn’t quite know what to think of this unusual flavor.

Making a Graph

A new fruit was tasted each day and the children placed a mark on the yes-no chart each day to show if they liked the fruit or not.

Enhancing their Senses

The teacher also played a guessing game with the children. The children closed their eyes and then used their sense of smell or taste to guess the name of each piece of fruit. Of course, all the children peaked first 🙂

Using Descriptive Words

The children also described different tastes with words such as sour and sweet.

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
