Thanks for your interest in my Five Little Monkeys Magnet & Felt Board Activity
This download includes:
- 12 printable pages in all
- 4 printable versions of monkeys #1-5 (blank, numerals, number names, and ten frames)
- an 8.5"x11" printable poem
- printable felt and/or magnet board pieces
- printable words for poem construction & sentence creation
As we read through the poem, I remove the monkeys from the bed and line them up somewhere on my board. As the number of monkeys decreases, state the proper number of remaining while reciting the poem. Five little...four little...three little...until all of the monkeys are gone.
After reading through the poem during group sessions for a few days, put the poem together with the magnetic words included in this download. My students and I have so much fun with this activity, and I hope you and your class loves it as much as we do! I find this activity works best during teacher-led, whole or small group sessions.
There is really no right or wrong way to tackle this activity. Fly with it and make it your own!
Print the pages that best fit your needs (full page with background or standalone pieces), trim the pieces, laminate, and attach magnets, felt, or Velcro, depending on the platform you have available in your classroom.
