Storytime Theme: Dino-riffic!

I was contacted this week to do a private storytime for a local elementary school’s preschool program.  They just got finished visiting the Natural History Museum and we decided to do a Dinosaur themed storytime for them!


  • How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad? by Jane Yolen  (Everyone gets mad, but how can we calm down?)
  • The Three Little Dinosaurs  by Jim Harris  (This entertaining new take on the popular Three Little Pigs fairytale shows kids what happens when you pick on the little guy)
  • When Dinosaurs Go to School  by Linda Martin  (Great for comparing and contrasting a common school day)

Using playdough and plastic dinosaurs, kids made their own fossil and dinosaur tracks!



This little egg puppet is simply a foam cut out on an egg glued onto a clothes pin. 

The baby dino head is a half circle with eyes drawn on.  I use it with the “Dinosaur Egg” song!

This lesson plan is free and you have my permission to use it all you want.  I just ask that you give me a little love by crediting me on any blog or social media post.  Thank you!
