There were five in the bed
And the little one said, “Roll over, roll over!”
So they are rolled over and one fell out

Action Rhyme: “My Five Senses”
A small mouth for eating, (Point to mouth)
My nose for smelling, (Point to nose)
My two eyes for seeing, (Point to eyes)
My two ears for hearing, (Point to ears)
My two hands for touching (Point to hands)
And my head? (Lean head on both hands, as if to sleep)

Song & Puppets: “Five Little Monkeys”
Five little monkeys swinging in the tree
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, you can’t catch me, no you can’t catch me
Along comes Mr. Crocodile as quiet as can be
And snaps that monkey out of that tree!

We continued working on our coloring book!

How It Went

Five is a great number! I had a lot of material to work with and the kids absolutely LOVE when I sing/chant “Five Little Monkeys” because I’m ruthless when it comes time to snap those monkeys. Lots of laughter and clapping there. “Bears in Beds” was probably the group’s overall favorite book, although I did have someone shout out “THAT’S MY FAVORITE BOOK MISS KATIE” when I pulled out “Little Quack.”
