Literacy Fun {Dinosaur Hats}  
    
Once upon a time I shared some strategies that I use within our Literacy Corner to shake things up a bit. One of those strategies involved wearing costumes! You can imagine my great joy, while walking through the Dollar Tree, shopping for Dinosaur Month supplies before we started Dinosaurs, and I saw THESE! For $3 I was able to set us up for several weeks of fun reading and creative play.

 

I bought 3 dinosaur hats, one for each of us in different
colors.

 One of our literacy goals for this unit was spelling, with
an emphasis on “voice” and expression.

Ta-da!
We were able to read books “as Dinosaurs” in our hats!
It seems so simple right?

Cash would ROAR letter sounds and we worked on
reading as two characters. In a book where people are talking to each other,
Cash began {sort of} to see that they could have different voices when read
aloud. Some great literacy scaffolding at work! 
You can do this with any hat too! {and maybe we will} Read like a pirate, a sailor, a viking, a princess. Find a fun hat and let their creativity flow. Get into character with them too!
