We had a lot of fun learning about dinosaurs. We read some great books about dinosaurs and learned a few new names of different types of dinosaurs. We talked about some of the features dinosaurs possessed (claws, scales, tails, wings, etc.) and also learned what the word extinct means. There were lots of fun activities we engaged in using our dinosaur theme!
The students did great with this activity! We used tiny dinosaurs to create some basic patterns.
The whole class worked together to put this puzzle together! Each group during centers worked on a little bit of the puzzle until finally it was completed!
The students worked hard to match the top part of the egg with a number on it to the bottom half of the egg with the corresponding amount of dots.
The students also had fun playing with dinosaur figurines.
My favorite dinosaur activity was when the students created their own dinosaur using random bits of paper. After the students created their dinosaur, they then had to come up with a name for their dinosaur and then practice writing the name. Buttercup and I loved seeing all of the creative ideas!

Letter Dd activities. We used our cutting skills to create a book with Dd words and also practiced forming the letter Dd by using a paint dotter to dot the letter Dd.
