How To Use The Dinosaur Letter Recognition Activity:

For this letter activity, your preschoolers will select a piece of meat and identify the capital or lowercase letter on it as they “feed” it to the dinosaur. 


Dinosaur Activity for Kids


If your pre-readers have just started learning the names of the letters, start with just a few capital or lowercase letters. After they can confidently identify those letters, add a few more letters every time your kids play.  


How Can I Differentiate This Letter Recognition Activity? 

After your kids know all of the letter names, they can practice saying the sound that each letter makes as they feed the dinosaur.


They can also practice finding the letters and spelling their names, sight words, and CVC words. This alphabet activity can easily be differentiated for all your learners! 


Extend The Learning:

Use this resource to add a literacy activity to your prehistoric unit or just for fun for your future paleontologist. You can also pair this activity with a fiction or non-fiction dinosaur book for even more learning.
