Dinosaur Literacy Bundle will give you all the tools you need to implement a dinosaur literacy unit in your classroom. You’ll be able to develop Reading and Articulation skills using this product as part of your Daily 5, Small group work and Centers.
When children “Sing”, “Move” and “Read” they make a stronger connection to the material and improve reading skills. They are also ENGAGED in learning!
Kick off your Dinosaur unit with these original and creative Dinosaur Songs, Poems, Readers Theater, and a Sound Action Story. Reinforce skills using the Literacy Activities for PreK- up to Third Graders.
Students will connect words and sounds through the SOUND-ACTION story that has the dinosaurs stomping, flying and other actions through dinosaur times.
Includes DIRECTIONAL vocabulary: ACROSS, ABOVE, OVER and more. These words also are part of Math skills that Kinders need to develop.
I’m hoping that these Dinosaur themed activities will keep your students moving and learning with music!
