Poems for Teachers: #2

Dawdling Dinosaurs

Danny the dinosaur dawdled all day.

Dragging around where dinosaurs play.

Drowsy and dozy, dreaming he lay,

Till Mum shouted ‘Lunch Time!’, then hey……

He’s away!

This poem is taken from Fun with Action Rhymes and Poems by Brenda Williams. It is ideal for young children and can be played as a game.

How about: getting your pupils to act out the poem? One child can be ‘Mum’ and have a race following the last line. The first to reach ‘Mum’ becomes the next ‘Mum’.
