Five Little Monkeys Jumping on a Bed This is a fun poem about five monkeys jumping on the bed! I find that I have a variety of students that I work with and having the same story in several different editions help to support all my students. I store them in a folder then give each child the edition that is appropriate for them. I use this story for students including preschool, kindergarten, and first graders as part of a poem choice. I use it with fluency cases to practice smooth speech. It is fun to use with beginner readers.
• The first part is appropriate for those children that are readers or to can be read to the child.
• The second part has a pictures and words in a rebus read. This is great for a beginning reader as
the pictures in the rebus helps the child with the words that they may not know.
• The third part has both the rebus read as well as a place for single pictures for the students to
interact with the text.
• The fourth part has two pages of pictures that can be used to act out the story
Bonus: I put in an expected and unexpected behavior pictures in as this is a perfect poem to reinforce this concept. The monkeys were not to jump on the bed and when they did they fell.
