1st & 2nd Grades’ Version of the 5 Little Monkeys

Leave a comment

First and Second Grades have a new version of the 5 Little Monkeys that we created in music class.  We read the book and came up with a rhythm pattern for the repeated phrase “No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”  We then transferred that to drums and sticks and came up with a melody that we could sing to the rest of the book.  We also accompany ourselves on xylophones and of course we act it out!  Check out these pictures of our creation.

In Kindergarten we are practicing keeping a steady beat by doing lots of movement and playing instruments.  We love scarves, circle games, drums  and moving to the beat.  Check out the slideshow of activities in music!
