These Sensory Bin Activities: Feed Monkey Activities are a GREAT addition to any
Zoo or Rain Forest Unit that you are working on in your classroom.
There are so many ways to use this Feed Monkey Set. I have
left it very open ended so that you can target the skills you
need to target in a small group setting.
I have also included instruction cards for each set so that you can set the activity up as an independent center, and/or sensory bin activity.
In the colors/sizes and numbers set, you can have students
feed the bananas by color, by size, or by number. You can also vary
The level of difficulty according to your students needs.
For Example: You can say
"Feed Monkey 1 red banana."
"Feed Monkey 2 pink bananas"
"Feed Monkey a medium green banana."
"Feed Monkey a large purple banana, and small blue banana."
There are also instruction cards to set up the activity as an independent center or sensory bin activity. You can put all of the bananas in your sensory bin and post 1 (or more) instruction cards for students to complete.
The rhyming words set works similarly. You can do almost anything with them in a small group setting.
You can work on rhyming words:
"Feed Monkey something that rhymes with bake."
You can work on beginning /middle/ending sounds.
Feed Monkey something that starts with the llllllllll sound."
Feed Monkey something that has the o sound in the middle of the word."
Feed Monkey something that ends with the G sound."
You can work on language concepts. (feature/class/function)
"Feed Monkey something that has feathers."
"Feed Monkey an animal."
"Feed Monkey something that we eat."
The possibilities are basically endless!
