Some last minute cancellations and schedule changes left me with a whole afternoon free today! I decided to use that time and have some fun with the kids so we did a giant dinosaur circle time. It was great because we're still talking about the letter "D" and our kids love dinosaurs. There were 11 kiddos that came for it, that's double what we usually have in a circle. Lots of kids means lots of different levels for group learning skills so I did what I could to make it work for everyone. It was a little hectic but lots of fun.
We started by looking at a toy dinosaur and talking about the colours that it was painted. Green and orange were the consensus. We practiced stomping our feet like dinosaurs and then read a book about what might happen if the dinosaurs came back, aptly titled If the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most. We finished up by stomping our feet all the way back to the craft table and making some D - dinosaurs.
