Five Little Men Song

(Songs, Circle Time, Puppets, Counting, Space)

Practise counting numbers 1 to 5 during circle time or use during your “Space” theme/unit. This pack comes with a large version of the spaceship and men as well as a mini version. I use the large version on my felt board and the mini version on a wooden puppet holder I made from scrap wood. (Check out the puppet holder in the thumbnails for the Songs We Sing cards).

But how?
I place the spaceship on my felt board and insert the five men into the pocket in the spaceship. We count all the men (and sometimes give them names!). After we sing the song once, I remove one of the men and we count the remaining men. We sing the song again and I ask one of the children to remove a man. I repeat this until the end of the song. It’s a great way to practise counting and learn about working together and taking turns.

What's Included?
- 5 Little Men and 1 large spaceship

- instructions on making the spaceship and men interactive
- two lyrics posters (one full colour, one printer friendly)

- a mini version of the song pieces

- a “Songs We Sing” card

It is great for school classrooms, early years/daycare centres, private homecare settings or even at home with your own children!

This is a standard letter size PDF digital file (no physical puppet is included.) It is a large file because I wanted the highest quality graphics to be included. Colour between the printed item and the computer monitor may vary slightly.

THIS ITEM IS INCLUDED IN THE "Songs & Puppets Bundle".
