About once a year, my son becomes completely obsessed with Dinosaurs. With the Jurassic World Movie coming out, and his uncle watching all the Jurassic Park movies to get ready for it, it was inevitable that we would be obsessing over dinosaurs for a while.
I just have ONE issue with this. EVERYTHING ABOUT DINOSAURS IS FICTION!!!! OK, Yes, dinosaurs lived, we’ve found bones, we’ve found cave drawings, we’ve found a lot of stuff about them, but we don’t actually KNOW anything for sure, and we won’t until someone invents time travel. The best I can definitively say about dinosaurs always starts with the phrase “Paleontologists believe…” And what paleontologists believe is constantly changing because WE JUST DON”T KNOW!!! So these last couple of weeks has been frustrating for the teacher side of my brain.
OK, maybe I have two issues, but it stems from the first. Most paleontologists are being forced to work from the same set of assumptions about dinosaurs. If someone tries to say their assumptions might be false, they get fired. Basically, I believe the world is only about 8,000 year old. I know my beliefs are not normal, but there’s a lot of science to back it up, and basically none to back up the “Billions of years” schtuff. ….. and I think I’m gonna put my soap-box away before I start ranting…. ON TO THE FUN STUFF WE DID FOR DINOSAUR WEEK.
Letter D Worksheet
So my son still has issues with mixing up b’s and d’s. Not when they’re capitalized, but the lowercase ones cause some issues not only in writing, but in reading as well. SO here’s a fun little worksheet I did for the letter D.
You could also use those fun bingo spot markers to dot the d’s and D’s.
So, it turns out, I suck at documenting things. I know we did a ton of stuff, but it was really mostly just finishing up his 1st grade curriculum. (why is that word so hard to spell). So lets see if I can throw up some fun pictures of all the stuff we did.
Sooooooo yeah, That’s what we did!
I swear the next post will be better, Its about the SUN
