Five Big Dinosaurs

Fingerplay for Teaching Early Number Concepts

This song is available on Jack Hartmann's Follow A Dream.

Activity suggestions from Jack Hartmann:
Use this fun fingerplay on any dinosaur theme. Start out with five fingers, then subtract one by one as your hand runs and hides behind your back.

Hold up your hand
Move your fingers to the beat
These are the dinosaurs so very big
When we start out let me see all five
Then oops! Say good-bye goes and hides

Five big dinosaurs stomping all around
Stompin and a boppin'
Swaying to the sound
There goes one dinosaur
Oops, say good-bye
Four big dinosaurs still left behind.

Four big dinosaurs stompin' all around...

...But, stop!
And look the five dinosaurs are back once again
Ready to play together as friends
