Flannel Friday: Dinosaur, Dinosaur (Shapes!)

For my Flannel Friday submission this week I adapted Dinosaur, Dinosaur from Thrive after Three.

Her post focused more on figuring out if the dinosaur was behind a colored door and I focused on shapes instead!


I started the activity with the dinosaur’s hidden behind the shapes and then we did the rhyme:

Dinosaur, Dinosaur are you behind the  _(circle)_ door?

I actually had a dinosaur behind every door because I also used this as an opportunity to learn the different Dinosaurs, but the kids still got excited each time we found a new dinosaur!  I always had a shy dinosaur that we had to be quiet for and ask him to come out, “please!”.


I got the dinosaur clipart from the CLSP manual and then just colored them.


On the back of each dinosaur was a hint for Miss Meg so I did not get the dinosaur species wrong ;)


This was a very successful flannel activity and it let us work on some new skills that we do not get to practice in storytime that often– shapes!

Flannel Friday this week is hosted by yours truly and the round-up will be posted tomorrow! :)

  1. Meg,
    I like the shape spin you placed on this. The kids do get so excited about what is hidden behind the shape, door, hat, house, etc. Great job with the round-up. Many thanks ~ jane

  2. Hah! Love the sneaky pronunciation guide on the back. Some of those dinosaur names are dang hard … miss one, you’re sure to have a precocious little guy (or gal) correct you! Nicely done.

  3. I love your twist on this! I also like how you mixed the laminated dinos with the felt (so they don’t stick!).
