Dinosaurs are very popular in my class & we have a bit of an invasion at the moment. Here’s what’s happening in some of the areas…
‘Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs’ is a favourite. Lots of counting, matching, numeral recognition & sorting at this table, but I especially love discovering what they do without an adult there… one little girl put 4 dinosaurs in a bucket with a number 4 pebble & then used a number 4 peg to clip a wooden number 4 onto the bucket…
Transient Art with dinosaurs… I have been amazed at some of the children’s creativity with this. These pictures have all been created without any adult support – not bad for 3 & 4 year olds!
Feeding the dinosaurs is a little tricky – some of the children are preferring to do it without the tweezers, but a pincer grip is still needed to pick up the beads or stones…
Simple dinosaur play in the small world area..
The children have fun with a Dinosaur Dig. Fine motor skills are used to brush the sand off their discoveries…
Frozen dinosaurs! I’ve been freezing dinosaurs for years, but I still enjoy the looks on the children’s faces as they discover them. They really enjoy exploring different ways to ‘free’ them…
The children have enjoyed making dinosaurs (& other creatures) with play dough, googly eyes & pasta…
The large dinosaurs have been exploring the outdoor area…
We love dinosaurs!
