My Five Senses
Rhymes

 



 

My Five Senses

I have eyes that can see
And a nose that can smell
I have fingers that can touch
And they do it very well
I have ears that can hear
And a tongue that can taste
These five things I should not waste. 



I Can Hear, See, Feel, Smell 

I can hear a dog bark
I can see a bird fly
I can feel a rough stone
I can smell a peach pie

I can hear a brass band
I can see the hot sun
I an feel a sharp nail
I can smell a warm bun

I can hear a horn blow
I can see the blue sky
I can feel a hot stove
I can smell a burnt pie

We hear, see, feel, and smell
A small rose a tall tree
I can see and hear you
You can see and hear me!



Singing the Senses
(Sung to "Bingo")

We use five senses everyday
To help us learn and play.
See, hear, smell, touch, taste
See, hear, smell, touch, taste
See, hear, smell, touch, taste
We use these everyday.

Springtime Song
Tune: Did you ever see a Lassie?
My eyes can see it springtime, it's springtime, its springtime.
My eyes can see it springtime, the grass is so green!
The green grass, the flowers, the sunshine and showers.
My eyes can see it's springtime, and I am so glad.

My ears can hear its springtime, its spring time, its springtime.
My ears can hears its springtime, the birds sweetly sing.
The birds sing, the lambs bleat the frogs croak, the bees buzz.
My ears can hear it's springtime, and I am so glad!

My body can feel its springtime, it's springtime, it's springtime.
My body can feel it's springtime, the air is so warm.
The warm air, the breezes, no frost and no freezes.
My body can feel it's springtime, and I am so glad!  



Five Senses 
(Tune: Where is Thumbkin)

Five senses, five senses
We have them. We have them.
Seeing, hearing, touching,
Tasting and smelling.
There are five. There are five.



Action Rhyme: Five Little Senses
Five little senses are what I need,
To use when things are near.
I use my eyes to look and see.
I use my ears to hear.
I use my nose to smell things.
I use my hands to touch.
I use my mouth to taste
The things I love to eat so much.
Five little senses standing in a row,
To see, hear, smell, touch and taste
The things I need to know.



Song: Sing a Song of Senses
(sung to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell")  

We use our tongues to taste.
We use our tongues to taste.
We taste the flavors in our food.
We use our tongues to taste.

We use our ears to hear.
We use our ears to hear.
We hear noises loud and soft.
We use our ears to hear.

We use our eyes to see.
We use our eyes to see.
We see colors all around.
We use our eyes to see.

We use our noses to smell.
We use our noses to smell.
We smell flowers and perfume.
We use our noses to smell.

We use our hands to touch.
We use our hands to touch.
We touch things both smooth and rough.
We use our hands to touch.
