HOW WE USED OUR DINOSAUR PRESCHOOL WORKSHEETS
Instead of lacing the cards, we used clear circle counters to cover each spot. However, regular lace can be used or even a piece of yarn with tape wrapped around one end.
The tracing pages were slipped into a protective sheet so that we could use a dry erase marker. I actually prefer this method so that we can redo the activity. We also printed an extra set and used scissors to cut along the lines.
Playdough can also be used to follow the lines as it is a great fine motor and pencil grasp development tool.The math cards were used as regular clip cards with a clothespin but it can easily be adapted as a regular page. Simply slip it into a protective sheet and use a dry erase marker or a dry erase crayon!
