Learning about dinosaurs was a lot of fun! I got to use a lot of ideas I've been wanting to try from Pinterest. Hopefully we can do the field trip in a couple of months--I would love to take the kids to the museum. I wanted to share my highlights from last week.
This is a picture of cracking open the "fossil rocks". (I had to hold the safety goggles on so they wouldn't slip off their little heads.) They loved the surprise of what was inside--each one had a different dinosaur or bug or ocean animal.
We used the bingo markers to "stomp" on the letters like dinosaurs. The ink was a little messier than I would have guessed, though. I just threw them away because the ink was so wet and Karma saw them in the garbage and was like "hey?!" Don't you love when that happens? Look at cute Aspen's fist in this picture, she's all intense!
They practiced tracing the letter "G" with a wet q-tip. They did really well this, too--all them did it really slow and focused. I'm definitely doing this again!
I loved how the moveable dinosaurs craft turned out. They had so much fun making making them. Karma even talked about it in her blessing on the snack!
And to end with my favorite picture of the week...this is all the preschoolers watching a puppet show that Miranda and her dad performed for them. They used dinosaur puppets and talked about how dinosaurs went extinct.
