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.

Tea and Texting

On Saturday morning a delightful teenager and I were sitting in a café, laughing out loud, while keeping our  heads firmly buried in our smart phones.  The other customers may not have been very impressed, but unbeknownst to them we were in a middle of an English conversation.

With the aid of WhatsApp we had turned our phones into ‘mobile learning devices’, and it was great fun. 🙂
