Five enormous dinosaurs
let out a roar. (ROAR!)
One went away, and
then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs
crash down a tree. (CRASH!)
One went away, and
then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs
eat tiger stew. (SLURP!)
One went away, and
then there were two.
Two enormous dinosaurs
sit in the sun. (FANNING MOTION)
One ran away, and then there was one.
One enormous dinosaur
afraid to be alone. (LOOK SCARED)
He went away, and
then there was none. (Say “ZERO the end.)

Oh where did my dinosaur go? by Jean Warren

Oh, where, oh where did the dinosaurs go?
Oh, where, oh where can they be?
They were much too big to just disappear.
It sure is a puzzle to me!

The “Dino Pokey” by Dianne DiMarco, Gorton, MA (Mailbox)

Put your claws in. Put your claws out.
Put your claws in and move them all about.
Do the “dino-pokey” and turn yourself around.
That’s what’s it’s all about!
Put your teeth in…chomp them all about.
Put your feet in…stomp them all about.
Put your tail in…wag it all about.
