Five Little Monkeys

monkey craft

I am not the greatest singer but that doesn’t matter to a class of 5 year olds! Have a bit of fun & add some singing to your day
This one is an old favourite & lends itself well to simple actions & this craft idea. You can add a popsicle stick to the monkey to make puppets!

5 LITTLE MONKEYS

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor,
And the doctor said
No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Four little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
No more monkeys jumping on the bed

One little monkey jumping on the bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor
And the doctor said,
Put those monkeys right to bed!

Aikendrum

aikendrum

A good friend of mine introduced me to this Scottish folk song. There are many versions of this song. I like the spaghetti version .

I also love how you can get the kids involved by getting them to choose what Aikendrum is made of.

Check out the link below to hear the tune & see an example of kids creating their own lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnW6Ei43rvw&feature=youtube_gdata_player

After they sing the song, students can create their own pictures of Aikendrum & label what he is made of.


Aikendrum Lyrics:

There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon. There
was a man lived in the moon and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

And his hair was made of spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti. His hair was
made of spaghetti and his name was Aikendrum.

And his eyes were made of meatballs, meatballs, meatballs. His eyes were made of meatballs and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

And his nose was made of cheese, cheese, cheese. His nose was made of cheese and his name was Aikendrum.

And his mouth was made of pizza, pizza, pizza. His mouth was made of
pizza and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon. There
was a man lived in the moon and his name was Aikendrum.
