Tiny-rannosaurus – Bites Again

This week I am introducing Tiny-rannosaurus to several groups of children.

We are reading a computerized version of the book, and then playing with its themes and images in a mini-project. We are exploring its characters, its locations, and its wonderful chomping, growling, roaring, stamping, charging, slamming vocabulary. And not forgetting, the labelling of  body parts, the learning of a little about the dinosaurs behind the characters and the creating of some great ‘rannosaurus art’.

I hope that it will be enjoyed by all.

Prehistoric Fiction: Tiny-rannosaurus

Our after school English club at Barcola started marvellously yesterday.  The fourth and fifth classes began their ‘Curiosity English’ course with a reading of ‘Tiny-rannosaurs’ by Nick Ward.

It was a great a read and the kids really enjoyed it. While reading the book on the interactive board, we used adhesive word labels to identify certain characters and features.

We then started exploring the story and its words a little deeper with the aid  of a few book inspired worksheets that I had created for the occasion.  We finished off our time with the children working in teams to spell Tiny-rannosaurus words with letter tiles.

There will be more Tiny-rannosaurus exploration next week, as well as starting a project looking at real prehistoric life.
