Connect Monkeys for practice with numbers, letters and more.
Make these Monkeys hang together for ABC and number practice as they hold hands to form a chain for a number line or alphabetical order.
Students will have fun placing these Monkeys together for practice with the alphabet or numbers. For older students, create words by chaining the Monkeys together. Students will get a grip on their spelling words as the Monkeys hang together to form the words.
Supplies Used: Adhesive, Cardstock or construction paper, Crayons, markers or pens, Marker or pen (white), Pencil, Scissors, Sticker (letters or numbers), Watermark pen
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Die-cut the Monkey #3 shape using two shades of cardstock or construction paper.
- With a pencil, draw lines on the back of one Monkey showing where to cut for embellishing.
- Cut the face and ear from one Monkey and attach to the second Monkey. Students may also embellish the Monkey with crayons, markers or pens (Figure A).
- Attach a piece of black paper behind the eye holes. With a white pen or marker, add a dot to the black eye to add life to the eye.
- Label each Monkey with a number or letter, either handwritten or with a sticker (Main Photo).
- Connecting the Monkeys is a wonderful way to reinforce and practice numerical and alphabetical order.
