Dinosaurs Story Time

Then, This week started off like all the others with our opening song: “If You Want to Hear a Story.”

Then, we did the Dinosaur, Dinosaur Rhyme from Kidsparkz.
“Dinosaurs, dinosaurs, stomped around.
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs, shook the ground.
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs, some gave fear.
Dinosaurs, dinosaurs,  we wish you were here.”

Then, we read The Super Hungry Dinosaur by Martin Waddell.

This is a cute story that the kids seemed to enjoy, especially when the dinosaur finally got some spaghetti.

After that, I performed a Draw and Tell Story called “William and Warble” from Draw-And-Tell: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Viewing, Shaping by Richard Thompson.

This is really a cute story, but I’m not sure if it was my poor drawing skills or an issue with the way I retold the story. The kids didn’t get that it was a dinosaur. Maybe I should have taken a few art classes before attempting this one!

Then, we read Shape by Shape by Suse Macdonald.


This was a cute story that really challenged the kids with harder shapes to identify than just your usual triangle, square, and circle. Almost all of them recognized the creature at the end by about the fifth page or so.

After that, we did the Pretend Dinosaur Action Rhyme from The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s Website:
Spread your arms, way out wide
Fly like Pteranodon, soar and glide
Bend to the floor, head down low
Move like Stegosaurus, long ago
Reach up tall, try to be
As tall as Apatosaurus eating on a tree
Using your claws, grumble and growl
Just like Tyrannosaurus on the prowl

Then, we did a Five Little Dinosaurs Flannel, also from The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s Website:
Five enormous dinosaurs
Letting out a roar–
One went away, and
Then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs
Crashing down a tree–
One went away, and
Then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs
Eating tiger stew–
One went away, and
Then there were two.
Two enormous dinosaurs
Trying to run–
One ran away, and then there was one.
One enormous dinosaur,
Afraid to be a hero–
He went away, and
Then there was zero.

Then, we sang “I’m a Mean Old Dinosaur” which was also from The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s Website (they have a lot of great dinosaur ideas!):
(To the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a mean old dinosaur.
(Make a mean face)
Big and Tall
(Gesture hands big and tall )
Here is my tail, here is my claw.
(Gesture hands behind your back for tail and make claw hands)
When I get all hungry
(rub your tummy)
I just growl
(kids grrroooowwwlll)
Look out kids I’m on the prowl.
(Teacher walks around students acting like a dinosaur)

Then, we sang our “Goodbye, Goodbye Song,” and that was it.

For our craft this week, we made a paper dinosaur out of the letter “D.” I got the idea from Little Page Turners.
