We have five senses that we use everyday to help us think about the things around us.
We have the sense of sight. We can see colors or shapes.
We have the sense of taste. We know that ice cream is cold and tastes sweet and creamy.
We can use our sense of smell. We can smell cookies baking, or flowers in the garden.
We can hear things too. We can hear birds chirp, people talking, or kids playing.
we have our sense of touch. We can feel if things are hot or cold, fuzzy or
rough, soft or hard.
Little Eyes to look around
Little Ears to hear each sound
little nose to smell what’s sweet
One Little mouth that likes to eat
Two little hands to touch and play
My five senses help me all day!
My eyes can see
My mouth can talk
My ears can hear
My feet can walk
My nose can smell
My teeth can bite
My lids can flutter
My hands can write
But when the clock it’s time does show I’ll take my five senses and away we’ll go!
