Dinosaurs hold a special place in the lives of so many children and they are hugely under utilized in Education, passed of as a fad, or passing phase but they offer the chance to teach so much across so many subjects, Geography, Biology, History. Life Sciences and of course English.
A dinosaur Alphabet is a useful way to both introduce younger students to the wonder of the world of dinosaurs and to start their English language journey. They can be suitable for Kindergarten to grade 1 students, or older if second language learners and can start an interest in science that should last for years.
The concepts dinosaurs can cover in these subjects are suitable for ever grade and here were present a Dinosaur alphabet to help young students and second language students learn with some of their favourite animals.
We have a nice and simple Dinosaur alphabet infographic for you to use here on the site, you can click the image to make it bigger ( more suitable for printing or displaying) and if you share it please give us a link.
You will also find other Dinosaur Alphabet we have on the site suitable for young children, and we also have a full ( this was a LOT of work) Dinosaur A-Z which covers as many dinosaur names as we can find and is updated yearly with new dinosaurs as they are discovered.
You can of course, make your own dinosaur alphabet for your children or students and we will start with that in the next section with some advice and links to help.
How to Make a Dinosaur Alphabet
While there are plenty of dinosaur themed alphabet worksheets and printables available on line it is sometimes nice to create resources yourself. We have some ideas and links in the list below that may help if you are new at resource creation.
- Try to source age appropriate images for your resource. This can be done through websites like pixabay, or google images and make sure they are copyright free if they are to be used online or commercially, or obtain a license.
- Age appropriate materials can mean cartoon or cutesy dinosaur images for younger children to more accurate images for older children.
- To make your Dinosaur Alphabet more authentic you can try dinosaur fonts from sites like Dafont. A simple search on there for “prehistoric” or “dinosaur” and you can access themed fonts.
- However make sure these fonts are still legible so as not to forget the purpose! ( don’t go style over substance! )
- If making more advanced Dinosaur worksheets (to follow on from your dinosaur alphabet ones) we have examples available for download below which you can get ideas from as well.
