What child doesn't love making roaring dinosaur noises!?
At circle time I explain to the children what an adjective is and that it is a word that describes something.
I then tell them that I'm going to ask them to roar like a dinosaur but they have to listen for the adjective of how to roar!
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs on the floor. Let me hear your very ______ roar!
(Loud, happy, sad, angry, sleepy, friendly etc...)
The children LOVED this and after I tried a few they were coming up with their own adjectives to try!
Naturally, loud roars were the favorite! : )
Then I show the children my dinosaur sound can!
It's so easy to make and it really works!!!
Then all you do is wet your finger tips a little bit of water and then pull on the yarn!
That's it!!! It makes a very realistic dinosaur sound and the children love it!
Tip: Don't get the yarn too wet or it wont work and don't pull too hard just simply run your hands down the string as you pull.
