Can your students guess where those crazy monkeys have gone? Give them 2 choices, then graph the results as an extra math extension!
Students enjoy zapping the monkeys with an X as they subtract them one by one. Where are those monkeys going? Chiildren trace the equations and solve the problem 'til there are no more, ZERO, monkeys left. Now it's time to graph and find out where your classroom ful of monkeys went!
This booklet fits in perfect with my mini-Monkey Mania unit. It's 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.
Read the booklet aloud to reinforce concepts of print and have your little ones going banana's on how they can actually read and share a book with their families that night!
Wow! Math, reading, and writing skills all rolled into one little booklet.
