We are actually doing a unit study on Nursery Rhymes at the moment and this week we were focusing on Jack and Jill, which includes quite a lot of opposites so the book I went with was Night Monkey Day Monkey.
I read it to the children and then while I got the craft organized Esther took it to her room and put on the CD and read it again! She LOVES books and especially ones that have cd's with them!!
THIS great climbing critters craft which worked perfectly for this book! After all Monkeys love to go up and down trees which is another opposite!!
THIS ONE for Esther and the girls also made up their own out of my stamping up card stock!
I love the excitement of Esther's face with her little monkey climbing up the door....
and Hannah and Zeke's idea to hang the monkeys on the highest point possible to see them go.
Here is there completed monkeys
Sophia's top left, then Hannah's and lastly Ezekiel's (the one with his string wrapped round him as he just packed him up!)
