Rhyme of the Week – Five Little Monkeys

The Chinese New Year begins on Monday 8th February.  This year is the Year of the Monkey, so our rhyme will be about monkeys!

You can help your child use their fingers to act out the rhyme and count down as the monkeys fall off the bed!

Five little monkeys, [Hold up five fingers.]
Jumping on the bed. [Bounce hand up and down.]
One fell off, [Hold up one finger and then point your hand down towards the floor.]
And bumped his head. [Tap your head with your hand.]
Mummy called the doctor and the doctor said, [Put your pinkie to your mouth and thumb to your ear like a telephone.]
“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!” [Put one hand on your hip and wag your index finger.]

Continue counting down until there are no more monkeys left!
