Mystery Box: When we opened the yellow box, we found a cute little dinosaur that likes to give kisses with his long red tongue. What color is our dinosaur? Green!
We handed out dinosaur stick puppets & did our first rhyme:
Hold your dinosaur & turn around.
Put your dinosaur on the ground.
Also Dinosaur Dinosaur, Where Can You Be?
(hide 2 dinosaur puppets or props behind your back)
Dinosaur, dinosaur, where can you be?
Hiding behind me, where no one can see.(hands, with props, are hiding behind your back)
Now you see one, she's looking at you.(bring one hand out)
Here come the other and now there are two!(bring other hand out)
We also marched to We Are the Dinosaurs by Laurie Berkner (LOVE her!)
