The free membership printable this week is Dinosaur Shape Tracers. This is a great activity for fine motor development and pre-writing skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
I set them out with some markers. We use crayola washables because they are easy to wipe off the laminated tracers.
The first step is to trace the shapes with their fingers. The children also try to name the shapes that are on each card.
The children then trace around the shapes with markers. Play continues until all the shapes have been traced. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday April 24th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the dinosaur alpha tracers are located.
I made a dinosaur roll and cover activity for our math center. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and laminated the dinosaur mat. I cut out the cover-up circles ... laminated them and attached a magnet to the back of each one.
You can also use playdough or pom poms instead of the cover-up circles for this activity. I made the mats with numbers 1-6 and also 2-12. Children roll the dice and cover up the same number on the dinosaur mat.
Play continues until all numbers have been covered up. If you are using the mat with number 2-12 you will need to use two dice and the children would find the sum of the two dice and then cover up the matching number on the mat.
