Preschool Storytime – Dinosaurs – October 7, 2015

Hi everyone!  This week we will have a roaring good time listening to books about dinosaurs!

Opening song – So Happy You’re Here! – Hap Palmer

Book – If You Happen to Have a Dinosaur – by Linda Bailey- There are oodles of uses for a dinosaur — from a fine umbrella to an excellent kite and a dandy pillow, not to mention a reliable burglar alarm and the perfect excuse to forget your homework. This book  explores  the domestic uses of dinosaurs — and the things dinos just aren’t good for at all…

Flannelboard – Five Enormous Dinosaurs –

Five enormous dinosaurs letting out a roar. ROAR!
One stomped away and then there were four.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Four enormous dinosaurs knocking down a tree. Clunk!
One stomped away and then there were three.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Three enormous dinosaurs eating tiger stew. Ew!
One stomped away and then there were two.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Two enormous dinosaurs sitting in the sun.
One flapped away and then there were one.
Flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, ROAR!

One enormous dinosaurs left all alone.
He stomped away and then there were none.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

(to the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
Flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap,
The Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap,
All around the swamp.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
Grr, grr, grr, grr, grr, grr,
The Tyrannosaurus Rex went grr, grr, grr,
All around the swamp.

The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
Poke, poke, poke, poke, poke, poke,
The Triceratops’ horns went poke, poke, poke,
All around the swamp.

Additional Verses:
The brontosaurus went munch, munch, munch.
The stegosaurs’ tail went spike, spike, spike.

The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
Zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz,
The dinosurs went zzz, zzz, zzz,
All around the swamp.
Shhhhhhhh.

Book – Dinosaur Roar! by Paul and Henrietta Stickland – Dinosaurs of every shape and size race, roar, and stomp through this colorful book of opposites. And where are all these silly-looking creatures off to? A dinosaur picnic, of course!

Song/Activity – We are the Dinosaurs- Have children march around the room.

We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs
WHADDAYA THINK OF THAT?
We are the dinosaurs, marching, marching
We are the dinosaurs, we make the earth flat
We make the earth flat

We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood
We stop and eat our food on the ground
We stop and eat our food, when we’re in the mood
We stop and eat our food and then we march around

‘Cause we are the dinosaurs…

We stop and take a rest, over in our nest
We stop and take a rest at the end of the day
We stop and take a rest, over in our nest
We stop and take a rest and then you’ll hear us say

That we are the dinosaurs…

And then we ROAR!
‘Cause we are the dinosaurs!

Closing song – Shout and Whisper – Hap Palmer
