Dinosaur Counting



One-osaurus, Two-osaurus by Kim Norman (Candlewick Press)

 

Fingerplay- 5 Huge Dinosaurs

Five huge dinosaurs

Letting out a roar--

One went away, and

Then there were four.

 

Four huge dinosaurs

Crashing down a tree--

One went away, and

Then there were three.

 

Three huge dinosaurs

Eating tiger stew--

One went away, and

Then there were two.

 

Two huge dinosaurs

Trying to run--

One ran away,

and then there was one.

 

One huge dinosaur,

Afraid to be a hero

He went away,

Then there were zero!

Rhyming Song- Velociraptor Rap from Storybots


 

Velociraptors, Velocirappin'

When we run up, who knows what'll happen?

Velociraptors, Velocirappin'

Don't get too close or teeth'll start snappin'!

 

When it comes to dinosaurs we are SMALL

6 feet long and 3 feet TALL

But our size doesn't matter at ALL

We're quick and speedy when it's time to BRAWL

 

Long flat snout with a real strong JAW

Jagged teeth and a real sharp CLAW

When we eat food we like it RAW

Shimmy shimmy yam shimmy yay shimmy YAW

 

 

We look like birds, you may have GUESSED

We lay eggs inside a NEST

We've got feathers so we stay well-DRESSED

“I’m the King of the dinos, even I’m impressed!”

 

Long strong legs with lots of POWER

Runnin' 24 miles per HOUR

We don't want to eat that FLOWER

Give us meat, and we'll DEVOUR!

 

Velociraptors, Velocirappin'

When we run up, who knows what'll happen?

Velociraptors, Velocirapping

Don't get too close or teeth'll start snapping!
