Along with ducks this week we also learned all about dinosaurs, with a fun song and crafts as well. We even had a dinosaur march around the room, stomping and roaring like dinosaurs.
Sing With Me
The Dino Pokey
(to the tune: “The Hokey Pokey”)
Put your claws in, put your claws out.
Put your claws in and scratch them all about.
Do the “dino pokey” and turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about!
Put your teeth in…chomp them all about.
Put your feet in…stomp them all about.
Put your tail in…wag it all about.
We read “Stomp” by Ruth Paul and “Dinosaurs Galore” by Giles Andreae. “Dinosaurs Galore” takes a look at all the different kinds of dinosaurs from big to small. We then talked about what it would be like if we saw a real dinosaur? What would they feel like? What colors would they be?
We made dinosaur foot prints. The children took our dinosaurs from the science center, dipped their feet into paint and had them march across the paper.
We painted wooden cut outs of dinosaurs and after they were dry we added tiny google eyes too.
D is for Dog too!
We also made adorable paper plate dogs to go along with the letter Dd. The ears are attached with brass brads to make them go up and down.
We had many parents bring in a special snack for our class on Friday. D is also for doughnut! What a sweet treat to end our week!
