I found a dinosaur egg at the grocery store. Have you ever seen one before ?
I know what you’re thinking “it looks like an avocado” well I thought it looked
like a dinosaur egg.
That is what we talked about when we sat down to make our special snack. Could this be a dinosaur egg? Why or why not? Most children were into believing that it might possibly be a dinosaur egg (I’ve never lied to them before). While others new it was an avocado right from the start. This little prompt allowed me the opportunity to talk about using my imagination. I told them that I was pretending that this was a dinosaur egg.
Avocados are great for using descriptive words, such as; bumpy, dark, shiny.
And even more when you cut it open - green, slippery, smooth.
We scooped the insides into a bowl and gave them a good mash.
Then prepared the rest of the ingredients.
Chopped onions and tomatoes.
One last stir then for a surprise…
Dinosaur teeth or toes, depending on who was talking,
to use to scoop up our dip.
Mmmm dino delicious.
