Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Rhyme
Clap your hands, clap your hands, clap them just like me.
Touch your shoulders, touch your shoulders, touch them just like me.
Tap your knees, tap your knees, tap them just like me.
Shake your head, shake your head, shake it just like me.
Fold your hands, fold your hands and let them quiet be.

Movement Song: The Dinosaur Hunt
Going on a dinosaur hunt. (slap thighs)
And I’m not afraid. (point to self)
There’s a tall mountain. (look with hand over eyes)
Can’t go under it. (move hand down)
Can’t go around it. (move hand around)
Guess I’ll go over it. (reach hands as if climbing)
There’s a river. (hands over eyes)
Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it
Guess I’ll swim across it. (move arms as if swimming)
There’s some tall grass.
Can’t go over it
Can’t go around it
Guess I’ll go through it (slap hands up and down in front)
There’s a cave!
Can’t go over it
Can’t go under it.
Guess I’ll go in it
It’s dark and spooky in here (shake)
It’s cold in here! (wrap arms around self and shiver)
I feel some scales (pretend to rub something)
I feel some big teeth! (pretend to touch something)
OH! It’s a Dinosaur! (scream)
Run out of the cave (slap thighs)
Go through the grass
Swim across the river
Climb the mountain
Run home (slap thighs)
Open the door
Jump into bed (cover head with arms as if hiding under a blanket)
I went on a dinosaur hunt
And I wasn’t afraid!

Movement Song: Dinosaur Hokey Pokey
You put your claws in
You put your claws out
You put your claws in
And you scratch them all about
You do the Dino Pokey
And you turn around
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your feet in
You put your feet out
You put your feet in
And you stomp them all about
You do the Dino Pokey
And you turn around
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your teeth in
You put your teeth out
You put your teeth in
And you chomp them all around
You do the Dino Pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your tail in
You put your tail out
You put your tail in
And you swing it all around
You do the Dino Pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about.

You put your whole self in
You put your whole self out
In, out, in, out,
You turn yourself around
You do the Dino Pokey
And you sit back down
That’s what it’s all about.
