Tip

The holidays are a great time to talk with your child. Their senses are alert as they smell the cooking food and the crisp, Fall air, hear the the crunching leaves under their feet, feel the cool breeze on their nose, and see the world change from greens, to browns, and to white.

Activity

Using your senses this week, talk about what your child notices around them, and then share a memory of when you were a child that’s triggered by a sensory experience of your own.

Dino Thanksgiving Day

Over the river, and through the wood,
The dinosaurs will go;
Stegosaurus, he leads the way through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to the mountain far away!
We would not stop for triceratops,
for this is Thanksgiving Day.

Thanksgiving Pot

(Tune: Shaker Melody)

We put some ___________in the pot,
and stir, stir, stir till its hot.

I hope my dino likes this dish, cause this is my Thanksgiving wish.

Tip

Everybody knows at least one preschooler who can rattle off the names of dozens of dinosaurs. There’s a reason for that! Preschoolers’ brains are wired to learn as much vocabulary as possible. So don’t underestimate them: give them all the words you can! Use the most specific terms possible and they will soak them up like a sponge.

Read a non-fiction book about dinosaurs with your child, then open up a picture book with dinosaurs and help your child name each kind of dinosaur that appears.

Five Funny Dinosaurs

Five dancing dinosaurs clogging on the floor.
One clogged away, and then there were four.
Four dancing dinosaurs spinning ‘round a tree.
One spinned away, and then there were three.
Three dancing dinosaurs kicked a doodle-doo.
One kicked away, and then there were two.
Two dancing dinosaurs having lots of fun.
One went away, and then there was one.
One lonely dinosaur afraid to dance a solo.
He ran away… and then there were zero.

– Adapted from Storytimekatie.com

Rhyme: Dance Like a Diplodocus

Dance like diplodocus
Swaying through the trees

Fly like pterodactyl
Soaring in the breeze

Sprint like gallimimus
Striding through the land

Hunt like velociraptor
Circling in a band

Scoff like a stegosaurus
Munching juicy shoots

Chomp like an apatosaurus
Crunching stones and shoots

Roar like a t-rex
Pouncing on its prey

Run like triceratops
Saying “Don’t eat me today !”

Tip

Don’t shy away from informational or non-fiction books when sharing a story with your child. Children love to find out about the world around them and how things work. Even if you don’t read all the words, point out the illustrations and talk about them with your child.

Activity

Using an informational book about animals, sing, “There’s Something in the Nighttime,” with your child and have them fill in the noises. Then talk about where the animals live, what they eat, and when they sleep.

Books Presented

One little bat was trying to behave.
He hung upside down from his feet in a cave.
Another bat flew in, and said, “How do you do?”
The 2nd joined the first, and then there were 2!
2 little bats were trying to behave.
They hung upside down from their feet in a cave.
To help pass the time, they sang “Do re me”
Another bat joined the song, and then there were 3.
3 little bats were trying to behave
They hung upside down from their feet in a cave
From their cave perch, they looked down at the floor,
A new bat joined the game, and then there were 4.
4 little bats were trying to behave.
They hung upside down from their feet in a cave.
One little bat zoomed inside and did a dive.
He stayed to take a rest, and with him there were 5.

There’s Something in the Nighttime

 (Modified from There’s something in my garden)
There’s something in the nighttime that I can’t really see.
There’s something in the nighttime, now what can it be?
Whoo, Whoo. Hear it’s funny sound? Whoo, Whoo. An Owl is what I found!
(Continue with other animals, I used an Owl, a cat, a mouse, and a skunk ‘Smell that funny smell? Sniff, sniff, A skunk! You sure can tell!’)

STRWP Tip

Giving your children paper and crayons, markers, or pencils when they can scribble is the beginning of early writing. It takes a lot of coordination to write. Scribbling and drawing are the beginning steps to writing. Posting your child’s work on the on the refrigerator or around the house will show her how proud you are of her efforts.

- Lambert

Activity

Read a story together about a cat. Then give your child drawing materials and ask her to “draw” the story again or some aspect of it.

Read & Talk

See the world: “Illustrations convey meaning and carry information, especially in non-fiction books where pages are often filled with commentary that is not in the text. Be sure to “read” your way around the pages-read and discuss the captions, tables, charts, and the information conveyed by the illustrations themselves.” 

- www.getreadytoread.org

Activity

Help your child check out a junior non-fiction book from the library such as, “Creepy Crawlers.” Look at the illustrations or pictures first, and then “read” your way around the pages. Ask your child questions like, “Have you seen this before?” or “What does this look like to you?”
