Dino DiY Puzzle
A simple DiY with cardboard & few bones outline – we worked as
⦁ a puzzle addressing cognition,
⦁ we measured the bones, a maths activity, & laid bones from short to tall & vice versa and so on,
⦁ we named the various bones of body & tried to learn those name & function of them.
⦁ trying to compare the skeletons of various dinos.
Both the foam puzzle (shop bought) & these were the most worked upon tray for the week!
Dino Pin Poking fine motor activity
Every time I post a story of Ahyan writing, my DM’s start flooding, of all the possible questions! I would like to just say this repeatedly, writing doesn’t happen over night, it’s a process, it’s a journey, a long one.
We started with lot of prewriting activities & games to fine tune our grasps & now finally we can see the results.
One such activity is the Pin Poking work, which you would find in a Montessori classroom, it’s a very low prep set up at home too with just a thick board/ wooden slate/ and few pins to go on with. All you need are few printouts of shapes, lines etc whatever the child is interested in to get start going & model them to pin poke.
Believe me when I say they love the work , and can spend ample time doing this. In our Dino unit studies we used printouts of the Dinos, & Ahyan traced the outlines via pin poking & we later cut them & colored , painted a few.
Q tip Dino Bones Reconstruction
Another extension of our bones activity, this is another simple set up, requiring following,
Q tips- broken down to different sizes
Black chart paper
We used Dino printouts from the unit bundles to cut & make the silhouette skeleton on black chart paper.
Also used the cut Q tips as an alternative to the printouts to form the framework skeleton of Dino.
Both the activities were super hit, needless to say they enjoy cut paste work & this was super fun to try out.
We talked various bones, physiology, long forgotten Dinos stories & what not. Overall a great experience to build on language, fine motor , & concentration to work & complete the task!
We had a huge collection of Books to go through & would make a post & resources of them sometime,
