Weekly Wrap-Up: Dinosaurs

Somehow the week snuck by without me managing to get one post up, but that doesn't mean we weren't busy.  September is a big month for us with our anniversary, my birthday and J's birthday all during the month.  Miss M is also starting soccer for the first time, and J is back into his after-school activities as well.  With all that said, we are studying Dinosaurs this month, and did do school every day this week.

We did a bubble map to recap all the facts we learned about dinosaurs this week.  This was Miss M's first time doing a bubble map, but she did great at recalling facts.

We practiced spelling the word dinosaur using our boggle letter dice, and later Miss M wrote and drew a dinosaur into her writing journal.

For math we played a dice game

and did a size sort

and did a puzzle putting numbers 1-10 in numerical order

We did a lot of work with our Dinosaurs Nature Tube.  We used them in our estimation jar, sorted and classified them, and just had fun playing with them.

We also did some non-dinosaur activities as well.  This backpack project was a great practice at coloring and cutting from Kindergarten Crayons.

We spent a lot of time on our core curriculum as well, including using Zoologic (one of Miss M's current favorite games).

All of the printables we used came from:
I am linking this up with Preschool Corner over at Homeschool Creations.
