in Creative Art, Drawing the Five Senses

Post image for I can see: drawing the five senses

The little guy on each piece of paper is missing his senses. Well, at least four out of five senses are missing and so my students were invited to add some of the missing senses…

After reading “My Five Senses” by Aliki and talking with the children about their five senses, I explained to the children how all that this little guy had was eyeballs which means he can see but he can’t hear, taste, feel, or smell…

My students did a remarkable job helping their googly eyed friend get back all of his senses. To prepare for this activity, I had already hot-glued a set of eyeballs on each child’s paper so they would stay firmly in place. It would be up to the children to do the rest any way they wished…

The funny thing about this process is that it doesn’t matter how a child will complete the picture, it still looks like a person with those googly eyeballs – well most of the time. We did have an alien or two thrown into the mix…

Some of my students grasped the concept of drawing the missing body parts so the little person would have all five senses a little more readily than others but I absolutely loved seeing every drawing as it was being completed…

This was one of our very first drawings of our new school year…

The children’s drawings were so wonderful that I decided they should also be our first display on the wall in my classroom…

Now my classroom is really starting to look like preschool has begun!

Let me try again. I loved the children’s drawings. They are so cute; I love it when a child’s personality comes through their art. I would like to know what the children were drawing with in this art project?

They are drawing with Crayola Twistable Slick Stix!

These look like so much fun! I also like how you put the word “see” for them to associate it!

I like to put key words any chance I can next to activities in hopes someone will have an interest in them!

I love this idea. Really lots the wee ones take control and get creative. And a great way to tell where they currently stand with their understanding.

Absolutely and in their prewriting or drawing skills! I could learn so much from just observing their work which is a bonus!
