Dinosaur Reports

Dinosaur Reports

Today we started writing reports about dinosaurs.  After reading and discussing several kinds of dinosaurs the kids got to choose the dinosaur they wanted to research and write about.  We discussed that we can research dinosaurs by reading books, watching informational videos, and searching websites about dinosaurs. We used ZOOM DINOSAURS on ENCHANTED LEARNING to get a printouts with information on dinosaurs. The children recorded the information learned on the dinosaur report forms.

Synonymsaurus - Fun with synonyms!

We have been having fun learning synonyms!

How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum by Jessie
Hartland and Thesaurus Rex by Laya Steinberg
and Bobbie Harter are two good books to help teach

After reading the books that use synonyms, we brainstormed synonyms and recorded them on an anchor chart.  The kids then completed the synonym worksheets.  They did a fantastic job using the synonyms in sentences.


Dinousaur Fossils

Today we made dinosaur fossils!  We used model magic clay from crayola and small dinosaur skeletons to make imprints.  One large container is enough to make 20 fossils.  So easy and not messy at all!
