Dinosaur Rhyming and Action songs
Enjoy these dinosaur rhyming and action songs as an add on to your preschool dinosaur theme.
Here are some great Dinosaur themed books by Jane Yolen that also teach kids about manners and social skills.
How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?
"How does a dinosaur say good night when Papa comes in to turn off the light? Does a dinosaur slam his tail and pout? Does he throw his teddy bear all about? Does a dinosaur stomp his feet on the floor and shout: 'I want to hear one book more!'? DOES A DINOSAUR ROAR?" Most certainly not. Dinosaurs give their mommies and daddies big hugs and kisses, tuck their tales in, and whisper "Good night!"
Dinosaur Hide and Seek
Have all the children hide their eyes while you "hide" a dinosaur in the room. (It should be placed in plain view) Tell the children to find the dinosaur, but not touch it. Once they spot it they should sit back down in their spot. The first one to sit down again will get to hide the dinosaur.
Purchase a variety of simple dinosaur puzzles suitable for preschoolers.
