Land of the LOST!!!

Today we finished our unit on Dinosaurs.  We have learned all about dinosaurs from carnivores (meat eaters) to herbivores (plant eaters) to flying dinosaurs and finally we learned that paleontologists study fossils and dinosaur bones.  We learned a few song on youtube about dinosaurs: The Dinosaur Song and I am a Paleontologist. As you can see by the pictures below we went on a Dino Dig to end the unit.  They designed their own paleontologist coat, grabbed a hat and a shovel, and went outside to "dig".  How weird that my backyard had dinosaur puppets buried in the dirt.

This month we also learned the letters D, E, F & G.  We learned the numbers 4, 5, and 6.  We learned the colors RED and YELLOW.

We talked about CIRCLES and STARS.  We learned that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

What a GRRRRREAT unit. We are really sad to be done with it. I hope they had as much fun as I did! Make sure you notice their dinosaur reward chart.  We earned lots of stickers this month.  They worked so hard!! 

Next month our unit is Animal Plant.  We will be learning about different animals from farm animals to zoo animals.  We will learn about birds and bugs and insects.

  2. How fun! Sadie showed me her dinosaur she found. She loved being a Paleontologist.
