Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs Gross Motor

We totally love Mo Willems books at our house! They are some favorites for sure. I was excited about Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs: As Retold by Mo Willems
for this month’s Virtual book Club book. If you had not guess we love dinosaurs at our house and have for years.

Today we have some fun gross motor activities you can use while you read the book or after you read the book.

We always read the book first. This is fun just to read the book. I love the voices that you can make with the book. At the end of the book, I always ask what gross motor they might do for each part of the story. I already have my ideas written down but you never know you kids will come up with.

We came up with several idea and some that my youngest came up with as well. I like to mix up the movements and have my girls moving different directions. I took some pictures of my youngest doing the activities but I love to join them in the gross motor. It is a lot more fun to get out and move with them than to just sit and watch.

Dinosaurs: We did a lot of stomping with roars and made funny faces. We stomped around the room making some loud growls and roars. We also did some tip-toeing pretending to be the dinosaurs sneaking around.

Goldilocks: We skipped around the room. We did small knee skips and big knee skips.

Ladder: We pretended to climb up the ladder. We counted up to 35 rungs on the ladder.

Bowl of Pudding: We did some small bowl stirring and some big bowl stirring. It was fun to pretend to be the dinosaur mixing and Goldilocks mixing.

Chairs: We pretend sit down in a chair. This was fun to see how low we could sit down.

Bed: We pretending to try and jump up onto the bed. This was fun to see how high we could jump.

Run: We did some running in place and running across the room to get away from the dinosaurs.

Door: We pretended to be the door that Goldilocks was opening. We kept on leg firm in place and move the other leg in a half turn making the same motion as a door.

Farm Themed Sight Word Cards

These farm theme sight word cards have been around forever. I just realized that I’ve never blogged about them. They were a request from a teacher. I made all the Dolch Sight Words and Nouns for them. This has been a fun set for us to use as well.

We have been using different themed sight word cards since I got that request. It is fun to change things up every now and then. Plus kids love having a change as well.

Each set has a Read, Write, and Build mat in them. They are tons of fun to use. You can mix in other cards to use on this mat as well. I laminate this mat of if I don’t have laminating pouches (which does happens very now and then), I put them in sheet protectors. We use Appletters to make our words.

Star Wars Themed Daily Math

We had so much fun with the Star Wars Themed Number Printables, I thought it would be fun to add some math ones! My girls love different themed activities. And I have one that is BIG into Star Wars right now. I also thought with May the 4th coming up these would be fun!

To help with some math learning I made these Star Wars Themed Math pages to help out! This is addition and loads of fun to do. You can work on a new page each day!

I know a lot of kids don’t always like math, but adding something they do like makes it fun for them! That is why I made these. They are great for review or just starting out.

We plan on reading this book: Star Wars The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, while we do these activities.

There have numbers 1 through 31. You can use a new page each day. It has a little bit of math, ten frames, tally markers, place value and math facts. It is an easy way to review the number and have fun with the math activity.
