Fingerplays and Rymes

Here are some simple fingerplays and rhymes you can try at home with your child. The theme of this week for the fingerplays and rhymes is dinosaurs.

Dinosaur, Dinosaur

Dinosaur, dinosaur, turn around
Dinosaur, dinosaur, touch the ground
Dinosaur, dinosaur, reach up high
Dinosaur, dinosaur, wink one eye
Dinosaur, dinosaur, touch your nose
Dinosaur, dinosaur, touch your toes
Dinosaur, dinosaur, slap your knees
Dinosaur, dinosaur, sit down please

Ten Little Dinos

One little, two little, three little dinos
Four little, five little, six little dinos
Seven little, eight little, nine little dinos
Ten little dinos for me!

Giddy Up Dinosaur

Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up dinosaur. (bounce child on knees)
Giddy-up, giddy-up, go, go, go.
Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up dinosaur.
Giddy-up, giddy-up, Whoa! (let child slip through knees)

Five Enormous Dinosaurs

Five enormous dinosaurs, letting out a roar,
One went away and then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs, munching on a tree,
One went away and then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs didn't know what to do,
One went away and then there were two.
Two enormous dinosaurs having lots of fun,
One went away and then there was one.
One enormous dinosaur afraid to be a hero,
He (she) went away and then there were zero.

Five Huge Dinosaurs

Five huge dinosaurs, looking fierce and mean
The first one said, "I eat things that are green"
The second one said, "I hatched from an egg"
The third one said "I have big, strong legs"
The fourth one said "I can fly through the air"
The fifth one said "I give everyone a scare!"
THUMP THUMP came Tyrannosaurus Rex that day,
And the five huge dinosaurs all ran away!
