Well, I just threw my plans right out the window (figuratively speaking of course - I don't actually have a window!).
I grabbed my little dinosaur figures and some play dough and we made fossils.
I used my articulation cards and we did a couple of different things...
We added dinosaurs to the top of the cards as the words were said a specified number of times.
We added playdough and dinosaurs and had to excavate to find our words.
With some groups, we used the Buildo History app (this app is similar to Clicky Sticky) to create and discuss scenes, to follow directions, to give directions, etc.
And, finally, we used the Dinosaur Preschool Pack posted by Brea at Let's Talk Speech-Language Pathology. This packet is AWESOME (and free)! We used Yes/No and What questions, along with the game board.

And that's how I ended up with "Dinosaur Week"! How often do you end up scrapping your plans for the day/week?
