Did you miss our Dinosaur Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions so you can create your own prehistoric storytime at home, complete with songs and stories.
Don't need a full storytime? Borrow a rhyme when you need a short distraction, or check out these materials and spend a few minutes reading together.
Five dinosaurs went out one day
Over the hills and far away
Papa called out rawr, rawr, rawr, rawr
But only four came back to papa dinosaur.
[repeat until no dinosaurs, and then rawr extra loud, and…]
And five hurried back to papa dinosaur.
Dinosaur, dinosaur, turn around
Dinosaur, dinosaur, touch the ground
Dinosaur, dinosaur, reach up high
Dinosaur, dinosaur, wink one eye/blink both eyes
Dinosaur, dinosaur, touch your nose
Dinosaur, dinosaur, wiggle your toes
Dinosaur, dinosaur, slap your knees
Dinosaur, dinosaur, sit down please
TWO BABY DINOSAURS
Two baby dinosaurs sitting in a nest [hold up two fingers]
One named Phinneas and one named Celeste [show one finger as Phinneas, and the other as Celeste]
Stomp away Phinneas, stomp away Celeste [put each finger behind your back]
Stomp back Phinneas, stomp back Celeste [bring each finger back out]
We marched, stomped, and waved scarves to We are the Dinosaurs.
