Activity: How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight by Jane Yolen
Enjoy this fun, silly, and pragmatic language driven book with your child in order to target expressive and receptive language skills! After, reenact the book, pretending to be dinosaurs, utilizing appropriate pragmatic language to complete activities of daily living (e.g., getting ready for bed, brushing teeth, getting dressed, etc.). Take turns being the dinosaur, and identify whether the language was “thumbs up” and pragmatically appropriate, or “thumbs down” and needs some work.
