Storytime: Dinosaurs!

This is a short storytime I did at for my preschool classes. Because this was a week where they had library time, I only read one story and sang one song, but the kids loved the story!

It’s hard to go wrong with How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? by Jane Yolen/illustrated by Mark Teague. The kids were largely unfamiliar with the book, so they really got a kick out of seeing the dinos storm and stomp and pout and, ultimately, kiss Mama and Papa good night. I gave everyone a fun coloring sheet from  Twisty Noodle, and we were off to the library!

We also sang a fun song about dinosaurs, to the tune of Ten Little Indians:

10 Big Dinosaurs

1 big, 2 big, 3 big dinosaurs,
4 big, 5 big, 6 big dinosaurs,
7 big, 8 big, 9 big dinosaurs,
10 big dinosaurs!

There are great dinosaur songs on the Bry-Back Manor blog!
