Everything Dinosaur Creates More Papo Dinosaur Word Mats

The Papo dinosaur word mats featuring Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus rex have proved so popular with teachers that Everything Dinosaur has added a further two word mats to this free to download teaching resource.  The Papo Spinosaurus and the huge Papo Brachiosaurus now feature in this colourful word mat series, enthusing primary school children about dinosaurs and helping to increase their confidence with language and develop their vocabulary.

These word mats, once downloaded from Everything Dinosaur’s dedicated schools website, can be laminated and then stuck on the classroom tables.  With six in the series there are plenty to go round.

Teaching Ideas

These dinosaur themed word mats can be used in lots of ways.  For example, if one is given to each table then the children can be encouraged to learn about their particular dinosaur, a great way to enthuse the class about carrying out independent research and independent learning.  Can the children find out facts about their very own dinosaur?  Can they make a science poster all about what they have discovered?  The word mats feature individual dinosaurs with various body parts labelled.

Teachers could blank out these labels and ask the children to provide the information themselves.  Perhaps, they might even be able to add a few new ones of their own.

Pronunciation Guide and Timeline

A pronunciation guide is incorporated into each word mat.  Great news for teachers and teaching assistants as this means no more struggling with difficult dinosaur names.  The geological periods that make up the “Age of the Dinosaurs” are also provided along with a handy timeline.  The silhouette of the dinosaur provides an indication as to when the dinosaur featured on the word mat lived.

The Papo Brachiosaurus Inspires Another Word Mat

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“These word mats have certainly proved popular.  At the start of the second part of the Spring Term we have been handing out a set of word mats to all the classes that we have been working with.  We have also received numerous requests to email these resources out to schools as well as making them freely available on our dinosaurs for schools website.  The children seem to really enjoy using them and in a number of cases, within minutes of handing the mats over to the teaching team they have been laminated and stuck on the classroom tables ready to inspire the budding young palaeontologists.”
