Theme Thursday: Dinosaur-rama

A lot of dinosaurs have tricky names, y'all. I found that the key was to fake as much confidence confindence as possible.

Song: Good Morning Dear Earth

Flannel: Little Mouse

Finger Play: 10 Little Fingers

Book: Dinosaurumpus! by Tony Mitton

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Action Rhyme: Criss Cross, Line, Line

Flannel: 5 Green and Speckled Frogs

Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Song: I'm a Little Teapot

Song: I'm a Little Dinosaur

Book: I Am a Tyrannosaurus by Anna Grossnickle Hines

Flannel: 5 Huge Dinosaurs

Book: How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You? by Jane Yolen

Song: Turn Around from Getting to Know Myself

Make and Take Craft: D is for Dinosaur

-construction paper
-di-cut letter Ds
-googly eyes or eye stickers
-construction paper shapes (triangles, ovals, rectangles)

Process: Before story time, glue 1 or 2 "D"s to each piece of paper, cut out construction paper shapes and make sure you haven't lost the eye stickers in the craft closet (whoops). After story time pass out the pieces of paper and show how the different shapes can be glued on to make the "D"s look like dinosaur bodies. The triangles can be spikes along the back, the ovals for heads, and the rectangles for legs, arms, necks and tails.

Time: Prep took about 45 minutes, craft took 30.
