We’re busy getting ready for Andrew to start Kindergarten in the fall. I’m actually really excited about it. Not the super early mornings, but the making new friends and learning new things and growing and changing parts. I’m excited to see what he’s going to learn this year. And I’m super excited for him to become a proficient reader.
Growing up, I always had a book in my hand. I read dozens of Nancy Drew and Boxcar Kids and a new Babysitters Club book was heaven for me! But even before those series books, Mom would take us to the library every week to stock up on reading material. It was an activity I always looked forward to, and I so hope Andrew and Caroline will grow to love books the way I did and still do.
But first, we have to get him reading a little better. :) He’s doing really well for a kid who hasn’t even started school yet. He knows a good pile of sight words and can sound most things out. Sight words are so important to reading development, but I’ve had a hard time getting him to put down the LEGOs and work on them.
So I decided to create a dinosaur game. We all know Andrew loves dinosaurs – ha! And he’s loving this little matching game!
I think your little new reader will too!
There are three pages of dinosaur words: a stegosaurus, t-rex and a brachiosaurus – and one page of matching word circles. All you’ll need to do to get your dinosaur lover playing is to print the dino pages and cut out the circles and he’ll be ready to learn!

Make sure you sit down with him and have him read the word before he finds the match. That way you’ll be there if he gets stuck.
Happy dinosaur matching! :)
