Dinosaur Storytime

Scott Bahlmann

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

 

Book: Dinosaur Vs. Bedtime – Bob Shea

 

(Bob Shea is fantastic, the kids like roaring along. Great interactive potential.)


Activity: No More Room

 

(We'd count the dinosaurs each time, and do some basic actions. Was well received.)

4 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 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!”

 

Book: Stomp Dinosaur Stomp – Margaret Mayo

 

(A nice introduction to different dinosaurs. I had the kids say the names with me as they were introduce, did skip a few pages.)


Activity: We Are The Dinosaurs
from the CD Whaddaya Think of That by Laurie Berkner

 
 

(A jolly good rollick where we get to act like dinosaurs. What's not to like!) 


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

 

(This is one I think the parent's appreciate a big more, but it held everyone's interest.)


Puppet Song: Dinosaur Round
from the CD Rhinoceros Tap by Sandra Boynton

 

(This was quite simple, the dinosaur wants to eat more and more, and I was surprised how much everyone loved it! Some of the food stuff fell on the floor, and there were eager children ready to feed the dino. At the end of the song I have all the food gone and the dino gulps down the boy! 0.0)


Book: How Do Dinosaurs Eat Their Food – Jane Yolen

 

(After the last activity, we learned how dinosaurs are Supposed to behave with their food. A fantastic series.)


Activity: Streamers

 

(Got out streamers for the kids to play with, not theme related this week. They had a blast, and once the streamers were passed out the dino puppet came out to nibble on brave children's fingers.)
