Sensory Songs


Tune: The Farmer in the Dell

I use my eyes to see, I use my eyes to see, and when I want to see a star, I use my eyes to see.
I use my nose to smell, I use my nose to smell, And when I want to smell a flower, I use my nose to smell.
I use my tongue to taste, I use my tongue to taste, And when I want to taste a peach, I use my tongue to taste.
I use my ears to hear, I use my ears to hear, And when I want to hear a bird, I use my ears to hear.
I use my hands to touch, I use my hands to touch, And when I want to touch a cat, I use my hands to touch.

I used to sing this song to my son when he was little and before he started going to school. And now my son sings this song to my students. My son Marcos is now thirteen years old.


Tune: BINGO
There are five senses we all have, can you guess what they are?
See, hear, taste, touch smell
See, hear, taste, touch smell
See, hear, taste, touch smell
And these are our five senses.

You can point to eyes, ears, mouth, hold up fingers and then you nose to correspond with the senses.


What Can I See? (Sung to: If You Are Happy and You Know it)

Oh, with your eyes what do you see?
Oh, with your eyes what do you see?
Oh, tell me now what do you see with your eyes? (Let the children tell you what they see)
Oh, with your eyes what do you see?

Oh, with your fingers what do you feel?
Oh, with your fingers what do you feel?
Oh, tell me now what do you feel with your fingers? (Let the children tell you what they feel)
Oh, with your fingers what do you feel?

Oh, with your nose what do you smell?
Oh, with your ears what do you hear?
Oh, with your tongue what do you taste?
