Saw this on a blog and had to try! My students think the dinosaurs play while we are not in our room!

Today we started Dino days in K4! We always start the unit by making our eggs. I use 2 parts water to 1 part flour. Mix in a big bowl. Put a small toy dinosaur into a balloon and blow up. Don't make the balloon too big. Use strips of newspaper over the balloon until the whole thing is covered. Once it is covered with newspaper I then cover with strips of white copy paper because when it's dry then we paint bright colors.

Dressing up as Cruella gives the kids a special memory!
We sponge paint spots and paws on a white athirst, make dog ears, and a collar. Each student gets to pick their puppy name for the day.
Our centers include: doggy Bingo,
A puppy craft, 1:1 correspondence( putting the right amount of spots on the puppy), uppercase and lowercase matching, a doggy glyph, a graphing sheet, and finally puppy tricks. As they complete each task they get to put a sticker on their puppy chart. I think it is good for the parents to have a visual to glimpse what we have been up to. I also have a Scooby snacks and puppy chow for a job well done!
