  • My students are learning this week the letter D and its sound. I will be using the resource to make dinosaurs with the variety of shapes, I like my students to have the opportunity to make the dinosaurs that they want, not what I call 'gimmicky art' where everyone has made the same. Thank you for this opportunity. It is also an excellent activity to develop scissor cutting skills and shape learning.
