We posted our Clothes Pin Dinosaur Name Activity quite a while ago and we’ve been getting such a great response from it so I was inspired to do another activity where we are using the spikes of the dinosaur to spell words but this time instead of spelling our name we’re going to use them to spell sight words.

This Pre-K activity works on identifying and spelling sight words. And for our Pro Parents who purchased our dinosaur unit this activity is editable so that you can work on whatever sight words your little one needs to work on. Or you could even turn into another name activity like our Clothes Pin Dinosaur.
