Dinosaurs! Pre-K and Family Storytime

Yup, still digging into reading.... but it's slowly winding down.  This week we dug up some dinosaurs in Pre-K and Family Storytime.


Bones, Bones, Dinosaur Bones by Byron Barton. A cast of characters looks for, finds, and assembles some dinosaur bones.

Dinosaur Zoom! by Penny Dale. Dinosaurs of all colors drive all types of vehicles to get to a surprise location. *Extension activities below*

How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? by Jane Yolen. Dinosaurs, like young children, may slam their tails and pout at bedtime, but they give hugs and kisses too!

Dancing with the Dinosaurs by Jane Clark.  This was a close runner up!

Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp by Carol Shields


"We Are the Dinosaurs" by Laurie Berkner
I pulled out my dinosaur puppets (T-Rex, Pterodactyl, Triceratops) and we marched with them.

* "Dinosaurs in Cars" by Nancy Stewart.  This was a great follow-up to Dinsosaur Zoom!
Letter of the Day:  Tt  Which two dinos start with the letter T?

*Flannel:  Which dino is missing?
