Ideas for Preschoolers:

D is for Dinosaur

BOOKS
What better way to introduce your theme than with a book.  We read all about dinosaurs in a child's encyclopedia. Here are a bunch of other great dinosaur books.



DINOSAUR TRAIN
You can't have a preschool dinosaur theme without watching Dinosaur Train on PBS Kids.  Here's an "Dinosaurs A to Z" song from Dinosaur Train.


Here's a lesson plan from Dinosaur Train to go along with this "Dinosaur A to Z" song.

Here's the official Dinosaur Train website on PBS Kids that has games, videos and free printables.

Here are some more free printables and activities from 1+1=1, some based on Dinosaur Train.

Here are some Dinosaur Train Lesson Plans based on various Dinosaur Train episodes.

FREE PRINTABLES
Confessions of a Homeschooler has many free printables on D is for Dinosaur including tracing pages, magnet page, sorting, puzzles, counting, clip cards, lacing card and much more.

2 Teaching Mommies also has many free printables on the dinosaur theme including Spin & Graph, Size Sort, Beginning Writing/Cutting Practice, Shadow Match, Spelling Page and much more.



Tired Need Sleep also has a bunch of cute ideas for this theme as well as free printables including shape craft, file folder games, lacing cards and more.

File Folder Fun has some cute dinosaur file folder games.

This Dinosaur Bones page from PreKinders was fun for my preschooler to color, cut out and put together, figuring out where each part goes like paleontologists do today with real dinosaur bones.




Here are some fun kits of dinosaur bones you can dig and put together.
