5 Senses Thanksgiving

I have been teaching my students about their 5 senses. We have been talking about things we see, smell, taste, touch, and hear at Thanksgiving. Each day we have created a list on the board for one of the senses. For example things we See: Turkey, family, pies, dishes, parades, football, friends, etc. Smell: Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pies, grandma's perfume, etc. Taste: Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, pies, candy, cookies, etc. Touch: Food (lots of food), hugs from family, dishes, toys, etc. Hear: Family talking, dishes, football, parades, prayer, etc. Now after they create this simply list then we talk about adding descriptive words. They choose one word for each of the 5 senses, and it cannot be turkey on all of the categories each one needs to be different. For see if they choose "pies" then we talk about what kind of pie and what it looks like. In the end you want something like "I am thankful for my eyes to see orange pumpkin pie with white whipped cream" I realize you might be working with younger kiddos or students with more significant disabilities. In that case focus on at least one descriptive word like pumpkin pie vs. pie. The download has a simple version with more of the words on the page and a more complex for your older/higher functioning students.
