Dinosaurs Roar into St. Mary's

Today my group was with the pre- K class. The theme was Dinosaur Train and from the looks of it, all the kids love that show. I read the class a book from Dinosaur Train. It was about how the main character Buddy was trying to figure out what kind of dinosaur he was. The kids seemed to enjoy the book becasuse every time I got done with a page I looked around at all of them and every single one of them was listening intently with a smile on their face. Once we got into the gym, I set up a hop scotch course using the polly spots. I was simulating the polly spots being dinosaur tracks and the kids were only allowed to jump in the dinosaur tracks. It seemed to work well but the only thing I think I needed to change was to make it longer with more variables or to make two sets of tracks because there was a little more standing around than I wanted. Overall, it was a good experience and I had a lot of fun!
