(Pretend to be climbing up a tree)

 Animals in the Jungle

(tune: Wheels on the Bus)

The monkeys in the jungle say ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,

The monkeys in the jungle say ooh, ooh, ooh, all day long.

The parrots in the jungle say squawk …..

The tigers in the jungle say grrr,….

Five Little Monkeys Swingin’ in a Tree

Five little monkeys swingin’ in the tree,  teasing Mr. Alligator can’t catch me!

Along came Mr. Alligator quiet as can be …. and snapped that monkey outta that tree!

 No more monkeys swinging in the tree!

 

 
 Put up 5 fingers
Put thumbs in ears and wiggle hands as if to tease

 

 Put palms together and make a snake like movement


Open palms like a mouth and snap the shut
Repeat rhyme moving down the numbers until there are no more

 Put hands up like “Uh oh, no more” and act suprised
