I am wondering if I will be the only American on StArt carnival not doing something Thanksgiving related this week. We are having fun with dinosaurs instead, and we read lots of dinosaur books. Here is the short list of fiction books that we read:I felt that Anna is getting sick and tired of dinosaurs, but thought that making stick puppets for her theater might be a good idea. Unexpectedly, today she was very excited about doing a dinosaur craft. It’s almost as if she took a couple days to digest all the information, and now she is genuinely interested. I am surprised, because I was going to write the theme off as unsuccessful. I printed dinosaurs from here and here. Anna painted them, but, of course, I helped to cut them. We also made a turkey out of $1 Michael’s craft kit (see, we did something Thanksgiving related after all). There are no pictures, but Anna and I had a lot of fun modifying Goldilocks and Three Bears to become Three Dinosaurs and a Silly Turkey. In our story a turkey wanders into dinosaurs’ house, falls asleep in baby dinosaur’s bed and then dinosaurs chase her saying, Come back! You are now our Thanksgiving Dinner! Anna found all this hilarious – she generally likes me to modify the stories I read after she learned an original version by heart.
