Carmen Avalos sent this version of Five Little Monkeys...

5 Little Monkeys

5 little monkeys swinging in the tree,
Teasing Mr. Alligator "can't catch me".
So along came Mr. Alligator quiet as can be and
SNAPPED that monkey out of that tree...


No more monkeys swinging from the tree,
Cuz they're all in Mr. Alligators fat belly.
So if you tease an alligator "cant catch me,"
Then guess where you will probably be.

Game Instructions

Perform the same actions with each verse. The number of fingers goes down with each subsequent verse.

1. Hold up five fingers and have them jumping
on the back of your other hand.
2. Put one finger down like it fell off the bed.
3. Pretend to be talking on the phone.
4. Shake your finger back and forth like your saying no.
