More with dinosaurs in preschool

We needed a quick song to sing with the children today so my colleague and I begin brainstorming dinosaur words that we could use to go with music we were already familiar with…

We had a few songs we had found in books but they were too long or complicated for us to actually remember without having to print out the words. We needed something quick, fun, and simple…

So after brainstorming a bit we landed on the tune “The Farmer in the Dell”.  We wanted the song to have movement so we decided that we could chomp, stomp, and roar like a dinosaur…

In the end our song went like this…

The dinosaur goes “roar!”

The dinosaur goes “roar!”

High Ho – Dino

The dinosaur goes “roar!”

Repeat the song and change the word “Roar” to “Stomp” and “Chomp”

Perfect song to go with our dinosaur headbands!!

    Oh- I love that! So simple and active! I have a little guy who is obsessed with the “we are the dinosaurs” song…he will LOVE another song about dinosaurs- especially one that includes roaring, chomping and stomping!

      We sang the song with twos and threes today and both groups loved the song!
