Mr and Mrs Potato head are great characters for a range of learning activities such as exploring our five senses.
1. The Five Senses
Mr and Mr Potato Head are perfect characters for pointing out our five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Their defined facial features make it easy to explain which face part relates to what sense.
There are a range of writing activities that you can do with these two characters. For example, if you make a Mr Potato Head puppet you can practice writing a procedure. You can also write a narrative about an adventure that Mr Potato Head might go on, such as getting lost in a toy shop… There is also an opportunity to write a description about Mr and Mrs Potato Head. Children can describe each feature in terms of size, colour and so on.
3. Classroom Management
I love the idea to use Mr and Mrs Potato Head as a part of a classroom management system. Read more here on the 2nd Grade Rocks blog.
