Common Senses

Children (like most of the rest of us) have five senses: Touch, taste, hearing, sight and smell. When teaching, take advantage of all five. This is especially important for preschoolers.

An easy example: The Feeding of the Five Thousand.

Use your imagination to come up with ways to incorporate as many of the children's senses in the lesson as you can. It will make the lesson more a part of the child's experience and much more memorable. But don't forget to include personal application rather than just the facts of the lesson and experience.
