As you see animals or pictures of animals, make silly animal sounds with your child. It's fun! Hearing and learning animal sounds helps children hear the smaller sounds of language.
Five little monkeys, jumping on the bed (Hold five fingers up as hand moves up and down)
One fell off and bumped his head. (Hit head with hand, gently)
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said, (Hold phone to mouth)
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!" (Wag finger).
Repeat for four, three, two, and one monkey.
