When timid Bubba, joins in the adventures at doggie day camp, he soon discovers new friends, new talents, and verb and adverb fun as well. Another book in the Pet Grammar Parade Series. Includes 2 study guides, 6 activities for verbs and adverbs and answer pages, too.

Dino Tail Activity 
Book: Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus Guy Parker, Guy Parker-Rees, Tony Mitton

• Read Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus.
• Everyone takes their own space to explore the movements of the dinosaurs. The teacher says, “Stomp like Tyranosaurus Rex, run fast like Deinonychuses, move slowly like a Brontosaurus, now fly like Pteranodon, and swim like a Hadrosaur. Give the kids time to explore each movement.
• Play “Catching the Dinosaur’s Tail” The children make a dinosaur by standing in a line and holding the shoulders of the child in front of them.
• On the signal, go, the head of the dinosaur or first person tries to touch the tail or the last person in line.
• If the body breaks or kids let go, the Dinosaur dies, and the head must become the tail.
• All the kids spread their legs apart so the tail can crawl through to become the head of the dinosaur.
• If the head person tags the tail, he remains the head and gets another turn. Put some music on for fun!

Songs: Tune: Eensy, Weensy Spider
All the big fat dinosaurs come to the dino-dance
Stomp through the trees and watch the others prance
Some swim so low and some fly very fast
All the big fat dinosaurs come to dance at last

Thanks for visiting one and all.

I'm so glad I could inspire you to keep going Christine. The only way to fail is to stop.

Sheila, I have lots of activities that would work for 2nd grade.
