How I Predicted Today Going…
Considering that Five Little Monkeys Jumping on The Bed is one of my groups all time favorite stories, I thought they would be a lot crazier and we would get sidetracked a bit, but not all of them have heard this story with our favorite monkeys so they were very intrigued. Their favorite activity was to run around outside like the “Five Little Monkeys”.

Activities Produced from that Story:
Made monkey puppets
Puppet show
Music show
Learned about monkeys & other jungle animals with a jungle animals theme box
Set up a Five Little Monkeys reading station
Pretended to be the Five Little Monkeys

What We Learned Today:
Worked on fine motor skills when making our puppets
Used creativity, imagination and communication skills when creating the puppet show
Used creativity & imagination when creating the music show
Learned about different instruments & the sounds they make
Used large muscles when running around acting like the “Five Little Monkeys”
Learned about monkeys and other jungle animals
Worked on colors when talking about the different jungle animals
Worked on pre-reading & literacy skills in the “Five Little Monkeys” reading center
