Exploring Dinosaurs 

Monday, January 22, 2018

 Ariana is excited to be learning about Dinosaurs.



She made a Brontosaurus Puppet. I asked her what vegetable she eats that is green and she said a cucumber. She is excited to do a puppet show with her new puppet set.



She shared that a Brontosaurus has a really long neck because he is a plant Eater and that he also has a really long body. He is Huge!!!!

Build a Neck for the Brontosaurus 
I showed the Brontosaurus head to Ariana and explained to her he needed a neck. She got busy making a neck. She decided how long it needed to be and how wide. In the photo below you can see her using her hands to measure how wide.
She told me his neck is 21 inches long.  :)













 Stegosaurus

Ariana drew a Stegosaurus

She said a Stegosaurus had plates so she wanted to glue on some plates 













When she was through with her creation she wrote Stegosaurus.

Counting Spikes

Ariana loved this counting game. She rolled the cube and counted the spikes. So Much fun while learning! We talked about the Stegosaurus and how it had 17 plates on it's back.                                                       
















Leafy Letter Ll

Ariana practiced her Upper and Lower Case Ll  and Glued on some Leaf Shapes
like the Dinosaurs Enjoyed.

 Thank you Mother Goose Time as we are learning about Dinosaurs. We are learning so much and having a great time.

Adventures in Paleontology 

Sunday, January 14, 2018


Paleontologists named the dinosaurs and Ariana thought it was really funny to add “saurus” to her name. She said it made her name really, really long. She is glad her name isn’t that long. It would be too long to write every single day.

My Field Journal - Ariana liked writing names of Dinosaurs in her Field Journal. She said Dinosaurs names are very long. She pointed out that each Dinosaur looks different. Ariana said she saw one with a very long neck. Sometimes they look scary.


Dino Imprints- In the photos below Ariana used her Field Journal Dinosaur Pictures to help identify her Dinosaur Imprints


Counting and Sorting Dinosaurs by Color 


Land of Dinosaurs 

Ariana had so much fun reading the I spy glasses to identify what she saw on the poster.

Look and find an egg.

Look and find the color purple.

Look and find a footprint.



Bone Puzzles 

Ariana had so much fun putting together the different bone puzzles. These were so Awesome! She loved this activity! It made her feel like a Real Paleontologist 😊


My Little Journal 

On the front of her Journal she drew a Pterodactyl.

She referred to her Field Journal for spelling - Pterodactyl and a picture before drawing in her journal.


She drew a lemon tree with lemons in her journal for the letter L.

She did some tracing throughout her journal and on the back cover. She loves Journal Time.


T-Rex Teeth Necklace 

How many teeth do you think a T-Rex had?

Ariana said Five Teeth 

How many teeth do you have?

Twenty one 😊

Ariana tried to count her teeth. 😀


She was very proud of her T-Rex 🦖 Teeth Necklace
