All of my kids love dinosaurs with my middle child being right in the thick of it. He’s spent hours reading up about them and this love of dinos has been passed onto his sister. They can spend hours playing with their dinosaurs and I love seeing all of the creations they need for their dinosaur homes. Sometimes, they’re friendly and sometimes they’re engaged in intense battles.
I like to take my children’s current interests and use that as inspiration for our learning activities. This is especially true when one of my kids is learning something new or having troubles grasping a specific concept.
For instance, these Dinosaur Subtraction Puzzles. When moving from addition to subtraction, I knew that there might be a gap or hesitance to move onto something new and more challenging. I used dinosaurs to help ease that hesitation and my kids loved it!
