Students will delight in learning their numbers 1-10 by counting monkey see-monkey do!
My Monkey Mania unit is a wonderful theme to plug in at the beginning of the year when you're introducing numbers and letters with fun songs like "No More Monkey's Jumping On The Bed" and the story Chicka Boom!
I put up a b. board Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Look who's in my classroom complete with palm trees and a monkey with everyone's name on it. (Click on the photo) As part of our open house scavenger hunt my students have to find the monkey with their name on it as well as their Captain Capital magnetic letter on their locker which they get to take home as a special prize.
This little booklet is a fun way to reinforce counting, adding monkeys, and then counting backwards and learning about subtraction.
Students trace and write the numbers.
Read the booklet aloud as a whole group to reinforce concepts of print, and have a barrel of fun with your little monkeys! :-)
