Dino Dig!

We are learning about everything dinosaur this week!  Since our science lab was cancelled today, I had my kiddos go on their own "dino dig"!  We pretended to be paleontologists and dug up some "bones"!  In kindergarten terms, everyone had a chocolate chip cookie and used a toothpick to dig out the chocolate chips...aka dinosaur bones!  My kiddos LOVED it!
Our "Paleontologist supplies"!  That cute magnify glass is from Target dollar spot...obviously!

Hard at work diggin' those bones up!

Getting a closer look at the bones! SO cute!  Of course at the end we could eat everything!

DINOSAUR Math Centers and a FREEBIE!

I am just LOVING this weather!  I spent the weekend outside, so I never got to post our giveaway winners!  Thanks to everyone who entered our "Survival Kit" giveaway!  Congrats to Kathryn, Tiffani, and Cherie for winning!  We will be emailing you with all your prizes!

I have some super FUN dinosaur themed math centers to share with you!!
I found these random bone erasers in the Target dollar section and thought they would be PERFECT counters for one of our dinosaur centers!  We pretended they were dinosaur bones and solved our dinosaur subtraction problems!

 Click HERE if you would like your FREE copy of these cute cards!
My friend, Kim, from The Very Busy First Graders, is hosting a linky about your Target finds!!  Link up there!
The rest of these fabulous centers are from Amanda, from Mrs. Pauley's Kindergarten's, Dinosaur Math Centers!!  She was so sweet to give me this pack to use!  Here they would pick a number and write the next three numbers!

Number object match!

My kiddos loved the domino math last week, so it was perfect to add this dinosaur domino math center!

Roll and color with the Scentos markers!  The first group did a pretty good job!  I did warn them that even though these markers smell good, we do not write on our bodies with them.  One little one did decide he would slam the marker into the floor making the tip go into the marker though...oh Monday.

Five for Friday

YAY, it is FRIDAY!  Best part-it FINALLY feels like SPRING!  We hit 70 today!  Funny to think last Friday we had a snow day!  Check out our fun week!

 I have the best kindergarten team!  One of the kinder teachers made all the other classes play dough that smelt like WATERMELON!  It has been a great incentive at the end of the day!  I just love that they make words with it!
A super FUN fish themed ending sounds activity from the fabulous Shannon, at Kindergarten Hoppenings!  She has the best stuff on her blog and a TON of it is free!

We are learning time to the half hour!  I found this fun matching game from Have Fun Teaching!
Irene did the cutest activity with her kids yesterday!  Of course, I had to do it with my kiddos!  I would call out a time and they would write the hands on their clock.  Then, I would hold up my clock so they could check!
I always do these little emergent readers as a big group, but today I put them in my writing center!  And WOW!  They loved it!  This book is from my Spring Emergent Book Pack!

Now it is your turn! But before you leave!  Have you entered!?
