dinosaurs storytime- stomping, songs and old favorites

Looking for a good dino read? Sometimes an oldie goes well with the newbies. We’ve read a few dinosaur books in the library this year, and enjoyed them all.  Dinosaur vs the Library was a hit with first and second grade. We roared, sang, and stomped to some dinomusic while reading it!  The dinosaur learned he was not allowed to roar during storytime, but he enjoyed his visit to the library anyway. For a quiet ending to our dino-roaring we practiced signing dinosaur in ASL.  First and second grades revisited dinosaurs with a rhyming book, Dinosaurs Galore. It was the perfect book to wrap up poetry month and give us an excuse for a dino craft. The last dino book in our favorites list helped us think about research and good sources for information. How Big Were the Dinosaurs? isn’t a new book, but it’s a great read to show us size and comparison of extinct creatures to everyday objects.  We can now say dinosaur three ways! Dinosaur/dinosaurio and ASL are all the ways we communicate about dinosaurs in the library.
