Flannelboard: Dinosaurs

If I come up with more rhymes and songs to go with this set, the post will be updated to reflect that. If you have ideas for other ways to use the set, please share!

Flannelboard



My goal here was to make the dinosaurs cute, but also realistic enough to be able to easily identify which dinosaur it was supposed to be. Hopefully I succeeded! Included are a red Tyrannosaurus Rex, a yellow-orange Pteranodon, a green Apatosaurus, a blue Triceratops, and a purple Stegosaurus. I think my favorite has got to be the Stegosaurus. It definitely took the longest to make! I used this flannelboard for my dinosaur themed storytime and also at a dinosaur themed STEAM outreach program. 

Songs, Rhymes, Games, and Fingerplays

“Five Enormous Dinosaurs”

Five enormous dinosaurs letting out a roar,
One stomped away and then there were four.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Four enormous dinosaurs munching on a tree,
One stomped away and then there were three.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Three enormous dinosaurs didn’t know what to do,
One stomped away and then there were two.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

Two enormous dinosaurs having lots of fun,
One stomped away and then there was one.
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp,
stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp, ROAR!

One enormous dinosaur saw the setting sun,
She flew home and then there were none.
Flap, flap, flap, flap,
flap, flap, flap, flap, ROAR!
