Dinosaurs

With Super A’s recent obsession with dinosaurs (we go on hunts for dinosaurs daily), I decided it would be a fun week to learn a little more about some of his favorites. So our lesson of the week is dinosaurs!

As you can see only the schedule is on the cork board. I have these little cut-outs from a book of animal drawings my Mom gave me. So we are adding them to the board as we paint them, marker them, and color them with crayons. I’ll try to add the end of the week result…if I remember!

We painted the stegosaurus and triceratops, and I plan to let Super A color the other two with markers and crayons. Different color mediums for different Dinos!

Along with talking about the different types of dinosaurs (this one had plates on it’s back, this one ate plants, etc.), we are reading several dino-themed books including: Some of the How Do Dinosaurs…? series,

The Super Hungry Dinosaur

No T-Rex in the Library!

And…if you want to get really silly. When my Mom taught preschool she had several dinosaur theme songs that I sing to Super A now. I posted the Stegosaurus song below!

Stegosaurus

My name is stegosaurus,
I’m a funny looking dinosaur.
For on my legs are many bony plates,
And on my tails there’s more.

My front two legs are very short.
My back two legs are long.
My body’s big, my head is very small
I’m put together wrong!

My name is stegosaurus,
I’m a funny looking dinosaur.
For on my legs are many bony plates,
And on my tails there’s more.

Sometimes another dinosaur comes by
And wants to fight
I don’t use fists, I use my tail
It has four sharp, sharp spikes.

And I adapted this song from Dinosaur Train…because I can never remember the actual lyrics, so here is our silly version of T-REX…

T-Rex

I’m a T-Rex!

I’m a Tyrannosaurus

I’m the king of the whole forest

I’ve got some big feet

I’ve got some big teeth

And tiny, tiny arms…with which to eat!

Now if you want the real song…

T-Rex Song from Dinosaur Train

I used to wonder who I was Why this tail, and teeth and claws But now I know I’ve got a plan Guess what kind of species I am?

T-Rex (ROAR) I’m a Tyrannosaurus I’m the biggest carnivore In the Cretaceous Forest

Gonna grow some giant legs Gonna grow enormous feet Gonna stomp around and gnash my teeth And eat and eat and eat.

Tyrannosaurus love to eat The thing we love to eat is meat My nose is powerful so they say I can smell my food from a mile away.

I’m gonna be as tall as a tree I’m gonna roar ‘til your ears get sore I’m gonna grow up big and strong But I guess my arms won’t get too long.

‘Cause I’m a T-rex (ROAR) I’m a tyrannosaurus A-roarin’ round the forest Tyrannosaurus Rex!

T-Rex (ROAR) I’m a Tyrannosaurus I’m the biggest carnivore In the Cretaceous Forest

Gonna romp and stomp around The biggest dinosaur in town A-roarin’ round the forest Tyrannosaurus Rex!

(ROAR!!!)
