We sang:

The Dino-Pokey

You put your claws in,
You take your claws out,
Your put your claws in,
And you scratch 'em all about.
You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn it all around,
That's what it's all about!

Add stompy feet, gnashy teeth, swishy tails, and then put your whole self in! 

5 Dinosaurs (to the tune of 5 Little Ducks)

One dinosaur went out to play
On a bright and sunny day
He had such ENORMOUS fun
That he called another dinosaur to come.
(Call very loud) DI-NO-SAUR!

(Then chant while patting hands on laps) Thump! Thump! Thump! Thump!
Then repeat for 2 dinosaurs, 3 dinosaurs, etc.

Instead, they heard their mother (or father, grandma, etc)
And she was calling "DINNER"
And they all went home for dinner!

After our stories and songs, we played with dinosaurs and dough! 

For snack, we had some delicious apples!

Next week, we're making the Earth!
