This week began our Dinosaur AdventuresMath:
To start Munchkin worked on measuring our toy dinosaurs with a ruler
|He loved this!|
Then we moved on to What Is It? Cards. Munchkin had to guess what dinosaur was being referenced by reading 3 clues.
After he finished this, Munchkin matched up our toy dinosaurs with the descriptions to double check his answers.
Dinosaur terms for spelling and then he used the index in the dinosaur encyclopedia (which he read in its entirety) to correct his spelling.
Munchkin worked on place value by matching dinosaur halves
We started our major craft - paper mache dinosaur egg.
|So messy but so fun and such a great finished product! (to be seen in next weeks post)|
The dinosaur skeletons I ordered arrived just in time. So without looking at the names on the bottom, Munchkin had to match each skeleton to the dinosaur.
|And, of course, he had to add his own special touch to it (he said it was missing the tale)!|
Finishing up the Childcraft Dinosaur Encyclopedia
Working on plural word endings -es or -s
|Love his "searching" face!|
|Counting on his fingers. He only missed two but we need to practice so much more. He should already be doing multiplication.|
Counting the syllables in dinosaur names
|And then, of course, he wanted time to explore the materials!|
Applying our second layer of paper mache
|Waiting to dry.|
