Last week we were lucky enough to top our theme-time unit off with a visit to the Gray Fossil Site in east Tennessee on our trek to visit Auntie C, Uncle T and the cousins for Thanksgiving at their farm.
|Upper - Lower Case Letter Matching from Making Learning Fun.|
|Time for a scavenger hunt!! I hid dinosaur themed letters all throughout the basement. ED found the letters and had to find the matching partner (pictured below). I often go to communication4all, Early Learning tab or sparklebox for letters with a certain theme.|
|The other kids came running and demanded their own scavenger hunts! DD had to find cards and find the card pairs that added up to 12. LD had division problems and their answers to find and pair up. (Below)|
|General dinosaur play, of course!!|
