A little dinosaur follows his froggy friends, then finds himself lost in the forest. How will he get home?

Flannel: Five Enormous Dinosaurs
Five enormous dinosaurs letting out a roar, (roar)
One stomped away (stomp, stomp, stomp) and then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs knocking down a tree,
One stomped away (stomp, stomp, stomp) and then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs eating tiger stew,
One stomped away (stomp, stomp, stomp) and then there were two.
Two enormous dinosaurs sitting under the sun,
One stomped away (stomp, stomp, stomp) and then there was one.
One enormous dinosaur wasn’t having any fun,
He stomped away (stomp, stomp, stomp) and now there are none.

Book: The Really, Really, Really Big Dinosaur by Richard Byrne

A big dinosaur wants all of Jackson’s jelly beans. But Jackson knows he has an even bigger friend to defend him!

We were scheduled to do a dinosaur action rhyme here but they were SO WIGGLY today. So I pulled some wiggle songs out of my hat.

Wiggle Song: Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Wiggle Song: Watch Out for the Bugs (to the tune of Jingle Bells)
Clap your hands, stomp your feet
Wiggle all around
Throw your hands up in the air and now let’s touch the ground
Touch your head, touch your hips, give yourself a hug
Now sit down upon the floor
But watch out for the bugs!! (stamp out the bugs)

Closing Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye to All Our Friends (to the tune of She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain When She Comes)
