Dinosaurs Love Underpants

Dinosaurs Love Underpants is such a fun story to read to your little ones. 
We read the story many times by request!!

I put together some fun activities to go with the story and my little ones just loved them.

We did a reading response activity and wrote about the story.

 The T Rex was mean. The cavemen had to stay home with the underpants. The dinosaurs wanted the underpants. The dinosaurs were fighting all night. That is how they got wiped out.

 The dinosaur that was mean is T Rex. All the dinosaurs were fighting over the underpants.

The dinosaurs were fighting all night then they got wiped out. They were fighting over the underpants.

We also did a fun graph ~ Which dinosaur will get the underpants?

Of course we had to make T Rex in his underpants. I had some fluorescent paint so we used it to paint the underpants. My little ones thought he looked cool and mean!

Back to School Sale

Down here in Australia, we are not going back to school!! We are in the middle of our school year and its winter, not summer!! I am jealous. By now I am sooo over the cold weather and look forward to spring and some warm weather. 
Anyway to celebrate Back to School for all my friends on the other side of the world I am having a sale. 

I am a new seller on TPT and most of my products are the activities that I do for the beginning Kindergarten. 
The other Kindergarten teachers at my school use my activities. They are my 'guinea pigs'.
They do the activities with their little ones and give me feedback.

I love doing art with my little ones. I  enjoy broadening their horizons and teaching them about famous artists.

The problem is I am not artistic but fortunately I have Patty over at Deep Space Sparkle

She is so talented and shares her talent through her website.  She has some great art lessons for sale. She also has many ideas and lessons that she freely shares.

 She recently posted 'The Modern Masters' and I couldn't wait to do the Monet Waterlilies with my little Kinders. The activity was super simple and so effective.

I told my little ones that all artists put their signature on their work. So I gave them a sharpie and they put their signature on their art. 

If you haven't visited Deep Space Sparkle, you should. You won't be disappointed and neither will your little ones.
