This week our theme was Snuggles, Cuddles and Bedtime! We jazzed things up a bit with a Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed flannel board. As usual the song was a hit with the kids–the flannel board visual really brought it to life! Hope you enjoy and check out my Snuggles and Cuddles theme for more ideas!
Five Little Monkeys Jumpin’ on the Bed
One fell off and bumped his head
Momma called the doctor and the doctor said…
No more monkeys jumpin’ on the bed!
I LOVE story time props/flannel boards that I can re-purpose! This particular flannel board was actually a combination of two others I had created.
Bed: Originally created for Five Little Monsters Jumping On the Bed. I cut out the bed from two large pieces of construction paper. The quilt was actually a piece of scrap material I had–I simply stapled it to the bed frame to make it look a bit more rumpled!
Monkeys: Were from my Monkeys flannel board titled Red Monkey, Red Monkey (a rhyme that is similar to the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle). The monkeys were made from clip art that I enlarged and printed on different color paper. I laminated them since I have used them for several different stories. I taped the monkeys to the bed and pulled them off one at a time as we sang the song.
I am slowly but surely working on posting my previous story times so at some point I will post both of those flannel boards!
