    12 Dinosaur Reading Comprehension Worksheets and Cards

    $2.49

    This is the 12 PDF version of these Dinosaur Cards.

    T

    I love teaching children about dinosaurs, I have books and fossils to show them and their enthusiasm rubs off on me. There is something about these huge animals that just captures imagination of children.

    So i have put together these reading cards with 12 of the most popular dinosaurs on theme. Each has some information and then 5 comprehension questions and a coloring box with the dinosaur in it (I will make the coloring images bigger for download in a short while in case you need)


    Reading comprehension is both difficult and essential for younger learners. Half the battle is getting them motivated on a topic to be willing as well as able to try to use reading strategies. These cards will help. You can add additional questions as you wish.

    Here there are 4 examples and in the premium set we have 12 for you. which should be enough to cover any of your students favorite dinosaur!!

    On these reading comprehension cards we have the following dinosaurs

    • Tyrannosaurus Rex
    • Dinosaur Days
    • Diplodocus
    • Brachiosaurus
    • Parasaurolophus
    • Pterodactyl
    • Spinosaurus
    • Stegosaurus
    • Triceratops
    • Velociraptor
    • Giganotosaurus
    • Plesiosaurus

    There is plenty of information for Children on dinosaurs online, however there seems to much less for early or ESL readers. That’s why we have designed these. They should be more suitable for beginning readers of English.

    Video Introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=da-HLzwuftE
    .

    Why Animal Antics… In a nutshell

    10 great reasons to own the Animal Antics Education Card game.

    • 30 Different animal cards and facts from around the world.
    • VERY HIGH QUALITY Production – to help deal with use in busy, schools, classrooms, learning centres and homes.
    • Designed, created and produced by English teachers.
    • FREE provision of additional lessons, resources, worksheets and activities.
    • Student friendly language beginner and intermediate students of English.

    • Fun and educational trumps card game.

    • We are teachers, and can offer full support and help with how to use these resources, just pop an email to info@makingenglishfun.com
    • We prefer that our resources are used, not just bought, so we will always keep the price accessible.

    The language has been written to make it simpler and more accessible to students of all ages and language abilities. We had been using the more established games in classrooms as they are a student favourite. So we thought by adapting the idea into a more language friendly system would be of benefit to teachers but also to students.

    These Animal Antics Trump cards have been designed and produced by English teachers to help provide fun, effective and engaging activities for all students of English. We also have tried them in classrooms to see if they are suitable for Kindergarten, Primary and ESL students. The main reasoning is to make all the information on the cards accessible to students not just the facts or the statistics.

    With this in mind we also have a regularly update page on the site with game ideas and resources for teachers and parents to use with the Animal Antics trumps cards, These include both reading and writing worksheets, matching and classification games, search for information tasks, larger instructions for desks and tables, and templates to use to adapt the cards to your own students learning environment.

    For verified purchasers of Animal Antics trump cards we also have a collection of these resources on PowerPoint to fully enable teachers and parents to be able to change and edit to fit their students needs. and we can send them or provide links to the templates. Access to these means you will be able to have full ability to adapt these to your needs. To our knowledge no other resource offers this level of integration and we hope we have made something that is much more intuitive to educators needs.

    We have also included in our resources page a new ideas section for all teachers who think of activities or produce resources to be able to tell all other teachers through that page. In the first instance through the comments section at the bottom but as we receive ideas we will post them along with ours. We feel that we, like all teachers, are not in the position to have all the ideas, answers or resources and teachers all over the world being the innovators they are will devise ways f using these resources we never did. Nothing will give us greater pleasure than putting those up to share.

    We have also instructed our printer to make 3/4 blank templates in each pack. these are there so teachers can either make their own cards, or to photocopy and give to students so they can make their own pack, with what ever subject they feel. We also have outlines to download and stick onto cards if you need on the resources page as well.

    I have made these for my  students. Guided and leveled readers can be really really expensive so I thought putting some packs of leveled readers might be helpful to teachers out there. These reading passages are leveled using the SMOG and Flesch Kincaid Grade Level. As with all things this is dependent on the background, prior knowledge and reading level of your students. Some will find it easier some will find it more difficult. So they are designed for you to use your professional judgement

    In this pack there are 5 reading cards for each level from grade 1 to grade 5, offered together at a discount.

    They can be used as part of general lessons or as part of a Guided reading programme ( which is what i am going to try to build up here) A set of reading cards for schools to be able to target reading levels for their students and implement a cost saving reading system to help them better cater for learner diversity.

    The phonics resources on this site also go well with this and they are also available in both free and editable versions

    Most of resources can be premium downloaded below, they are all editable so you can adapt them for your, classes, students and schools. It also helps me with the costs of running the website!
