Paleontology anyone? Free Mister Bones Activity Pack

I love the fact that we get to study dinosaurs again!  We first learned about dinosaurs back in October.  They learned that some dinosaurs were Herbivores and some were Carnivores.  This week we read about Mister Bones: The founder of the T-Rex! 

The students also got to experience digging bones themselves.  I ordered a few excavating kits for the students to practice with!  You can order these Dinosaur Fossil Kits  for only $2.99 each and they arrive really quickly!  I got mine in 2 days!  I ordered 6 and had small groups of 4-5 work together.  If you don't have time for this, you can always use a toothpick and chocolate chip cookies and dig out the chocolate chips.

Our Grammar and Writing skill was adjectives, so we did a lot of practicing during Writer's Workshop.  We started out using adjectives in sentences with this activity.  Then they began using it more in their stories.

When they finished digging for bones, they worked on sequencing this event.  They wrote about it using this graphic organizer.

Our phonics skill was Long Vowel /oa/ /ow/ and 3-letter blends.  They had fun playing the games in centers!

This is a Word Work game that I use with spinners.  If you don't have clear spinners, you can just use a paperclip with a pencil.

All these activities are FREE in my Mister Bones Literacy Pack.  Click Picture link to download
