Last week our focus was on Oklahoma dinosaurs Some of our activities were as follow: Craft Day: Tuesday, 10:a.m.-2 " p.m. (School Age Children) Children talked about Dazzle the Dinosaur and then painted Dazzle.s beautiful scales. It was really fun to create our own special dinosaur egg. The children used recyclables to make an apatosaurus and a stegosaurs. The painting activity was sponge painting dinosaurs. Making mb-ons was one of the interesting extra time activi- ties. Daycare Day: Wednesday, 9: 30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.--Preschool: 12:30-2:30 p.m.-School Age: The reading of Dazzle the Dinosaur was presented fol- lowed by a puppet play, Three Dinosaurs Rough. Charlotte helped us have fun with a number of dinosaur songs. Following storytime the chil- dren had the opportunity of doing the crafts named above according to their age level. The preschool dino-storytime has increased in attendance each time to our delight. We wel- comed twelve new storytime friends this last Thursday. This week some of the activi- ties we will be doing are doing songs on other dinosaurs. Children have started to spend their treasure dollars at the Dinosaur Treasure Store. Each child has a catalog listing most of the items that the store has to sell. Children have until July 25 to complete their read- ing, so there,s a lot of time to earn dollars to spend.
