Dinosaur Round Up!

I don't know why but I think dinosaurs are so much fun to do in the classroom! It's always one of my favorite themes to plan for. I've gone all out and created a volcano for dramatic play {directions shared in this post}
and I love how much fun the sensory table can be with "fossils" to dig for and discover in the sand.
Unfortunately I no longer have that awesome loft to hang my volcano from, but the ceiling works too along with some help from the custodians. :)

Dinosaurs must be a great topic for others too because they are some of my best selling products that I have in my store. I have my Dinosaur Roar Unit, which was updated in 2013 to include some awesome resources for teaching about dinosuars- the fact posters are my favorite! This is still the #4 top product in my TpT store!

Next up, at #3 in my TpT store is Dinosaur Alphabet Matching that I added back to my store just last year. This file had a face lift and I can't believe how popular it has become! It's a fun quick little activity to practice letter identification. It can be used in a pocket chart, as a memory game, literacy center, or even just a quick time filler.

When I go to plan for my dinosaur theme this school year I'm going to want to incorporate the theme into as many of the different parts of our routine as I can so I of course I was going to need some Dinosaur Cookie Tray Activities! I figured you would too knowing how popular the other items have been!

I'm excited to share these with you, 26 activity pages total. Perfect for planning that part of your day. We use these as a "morning work" that students do as part of their arrival routine. With a mix of skill levels included I can mix these sheets up between my students and get 2-3 weeks out of just the one pack!

Here's a shot of just some of the activity sheets that are included.

I hope to see these new dinosaur activities jump to the top of my best selling list with their friends! What do you think?!
