Using the story/chant, "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" and "5 Little Monkeys Swinging in the Trees".
Fine motor skills:
*using clothespins designed as alligators (picture provided), students become the alligator and "grab" the monkeys
Counting to/back from 5:
*students recite the chant and add/subtract monkeys from a bed setting or tree setting (depending on which story you use)
Retelling the story:
*students color monkeys and tree/bed, cut out, and glue to popsicle sticks to retell the story or act out the chant as the class/group recites
Includes copies of both story chants!
*Everything you need is in this pack except for the clothespins and velcro! I'm using these activities for my 3-4 year old PreK classes, my Special Needs/Autism classes, and my Kindergarten classes. The great thing is you can repeat the activities later - students love it!
