“I’m Tyrannosaurus: A Book of Dinosaur Rhymes” by Jean Marzollo
Illustrations by Hans Wilhelm ©1993 - 2012
Some teachers find it interesting to review at this time of year facts that children are learning (or have learned) about dinosaurs. Children can draw pictures to illustrate the dinosaur facts below or act them out in dramatic play. I am impressed that today kindergarten kids know the words “fiction” and “non-fiction.” As a class project, you could make fiction and non-fiction books about dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs hatched from eggs.
Some dinosaurs were big.
Some dinosaurs were small.
Some dinosaurs ate meat.
Some dinosaurs ate plants.
Some dinosaurs ate both.
Tyrannosaurus rex ate meat
He had sharp teeth.
Brontosaurus ate plants.
He had teeth like pegs.
Dinosaurs were reptiles.
Snakes and turtles are reptiles too.
Dinosaurs lived long, long ago on earth.
They lived on earth before people.
There are no more dinosaurs today.
We say that dinosaurs are “extinct.”
Scientists who study dinosaurs are called “paleontologists.”
As you look through the following free ebook on my website, discuss which pictures are fiction and which are non-fiction: http://jeanmarzollo.com/books/imtrex.html
