Kindergarten Sight Words – Dinosaur Matching

Free Kindergarten Sight Word Dinosaur Game Printable // Meagan Musing

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! :)

Dinosaur Birthday Party + Free Printables

Dinosaur Party + Free Printables // MeaganMusing

Andrew turned five last week, and we decided to go all out for his big celebration. He was so excited to invite his friends to our house, talking for months about who would be able to come and how much fun they would all have.

It’s no secret that dinosaurs are Andrew’s favorite thing in the whole wide world, so I put my creativity and my new Illustrator skillz to the test to create an epic dino bash for our favorite five year old. I had so much fun putting this party together. It was my favorite party so far, and I’ve decided I could just plan kid parties full time. I think they’re my love language. Ha!

Below is everything you’ve ever wanted to know about throwing a dinosaur party. I’ll have a list of sources at the end as well as links to download and print the party circles, the flag banner and the water bottle wrappers for your own dinosaur party.

First up, the food table.

Dinosaur Valentines

Dinosaur Valentine Printables

Andrew LOVES dinosaurs…everything about them. He knows which ones are big and which ones eat meat and which ones have feathers or live in the water. He can pronounce weird ones like parasaurolophus and can sing the Dinosaurs A-Z song 18 times in a row. Yep.

So when it was time to get to work on our Valentines for Andrew’s Pre-K class I knew we needed to go with a dinosaur theme.

And we came up with these two adorable dinosaur Valentines.

Dinosaur Valentines

I mean? Adorable right? We needed two because dinos and hearts go so well together. :)

We couldn’t decide on one so I combined them, and had them double-sided printed with the brachiosaurus on the front and just the little steggy and his ‘rawr’ on the back. I can’t wait until Valentine’s Day so he can pass them out!

Dinosaur Valentines

We’re going to attach a mini dinosaur to the back for a little treat for all his dino-loving friends.

Do you have a dinosaur lover in need of a Valentine? These are for you!
 
There is room for your kiddo to personalize them on the front or the back depending on if you attach a mini dinosaur. We’re using these little vinyl dinos – it’s going to be hard for Andrew to give them away!
Please share and enjoy!
