This week we learned all about dinosaurs and the kids loved it! 

We used our core vocabulary boards to show same vs. different. The kids cracked the dino eggs open and had to state if the dinosaur inside was the same or a different color than the egg. 


We made these cute hand print stegosaurus. 


We clipped the stegosaurus plates on (colored clothespins).  


We made dino prints with dinosaurs. 


We dug dinosaur bones and stamped the letters we found. 


We also counted out dinosaurs 1-10. 


We matched dinosaurs. 




We colored the book Dinosaur, Dinosaur What Do You See?



And we read Where is the T-Rex? and placed the t-rex in the correct place.

Dinosaurs: Pre-K and Kindergarten Activities

Here are some of the books we also read!


Favorite Dinosaur Books:





Stomp! This is a fun interactive book. The students were able to get up and stomp, growl, and swish their tails like dinosaurs and some other fun movements.



Bones, Bones, Dinosaur Bones A great way to explain the job of a paleontologist. 
 
Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! (Boynton on Board) 
This is a great book about opposites. 
 
  Dinosaur Dance!
 
  Noisy Dinosaurs (My First Touch and Feel Sound Book)
My kids loved this one because they could push the button and here the sounds of the dinosaurs and each dinosaur! 
 
We had a fun week! Next week we are going to start learning about baseball and spring! 
Have a great Sunday!

I love morning messages! They are easy to do and a great way to start off the day! You can also review lots of skills very quickly and they are engaging for students. Morning messages I have used when I taught Kindergarten and even now in ECSE.


Here are some of the skills you can practice:

Days of the week, counting money, writing a letter,


weather, rhyming words,


ABC order and identification,


counting and getting to know you activities for your kids. 


You can also practice beginning sounds, 


discuss feelings and why you feel that way, 



counting out items, identifying colors,


creating patterns, identifying patterns,


and share who is the special helper and something special about them. 



You can also have students try to figure out what is in the pocket based off clues given. 



You can also work on sight words, punctuation, and letter identification.




They are a great way to start off the morning and you can get the kids involved in it all by giving them clipboards and paper or dry erase board and markers and have students write the missing letters or sight words, or items missing in the message. 




You can find all of these activities in one Mega Bundle here for 1/2 off for the weekend or separate ones here.
