Opening: Shake Your Sillies Out – Raffi

 

Book: Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct – Mo Willems

 

(So fun, and a great message)


Activity: All Around the Swamp 

 

The dinos in the swamp go stomp, stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp.
The dinos in the swamp go stomp, stomp, stomp,
All around the swamp

The Pteranodon’s wings go flap, flap, flap...
The Tyrannosaurus teeth go chomp, chomp, chomp...
The Triceratops horns go poke, poke, poke...
The Apatosaurus neck goes stretch, stretch, stretch...

The dinos in the swamp go stomp, stomp, stomp...
All around the swamp.

(The Wheels of the Bus tune with Dinosaur actions)

Flannelboard: No More Room 

 
dinosaurpuppets

(A countdown flannelboard. I used little puppets and a cave made out of paper bags.)

5 huge dinosaurs Sleeping on the cave floor
Woke up and started to roar
“There’s no more room, there’s no more room
there’s no more room on this floor!”
Well, they tossed and they turned and they pushed galore
Till one poor dinosaur was pushed out the door!

-repeat with 4,3,2,-

 (last verse)

One huge dinosaur Sleeping on the cave floor
Woke up and started to roar
“Come back, come back, it was better before
It’s more fun together, crowded on the floor!”

Song: Mean Old Dinosaur 

 

I'm a mean old Dinosaur 
(Make a mean face) 
Big and Tall
Here is my tail,
here is my claw.
When I get all hungry I just growl
grrrrrrr 
Look out kids I'm on the prowl.
Rawrrr!

(I'm a little teapot, dinosaur style)


Book: Dinosaur vs. Bedtime – Bob Shea

 
 

Song: We Are The Dinosaurs
from the CD Whadda' Think of That by Laurie Berkner

 
 

(prefaced by reminding the kids the different dinosaur actions we used earlier [in All Around the Swamp] and we used those actions for the marching, and acted out the rest! A fantastic song.)
