Flannel Friday: Teasing Mr. Alligator

My addition to Flannel Friday this week is a flannel template for the Rhyme Teasing Mr. Alligator!  I did a monkey storytime about a month ago and the outline for that is here!

Teasing Mr. Alligator

Five little monkeys
Sitting in a tree
Teasing Mister Alligator:
“You can’t catch me.”
Along comes Mister Alligator,
Quiet as can be
And SNAPS that monkey
Right out of that tree!

Four little monkeys
Sitting in a tree
Teasing Mister Alligator:
“You can’t catch me.”
Along comes Mister Alligator,
Quiet as can be
And SNAPS that monkey
Right out of that tree!

Three little monkeys….
Two little monkeys…
One little monkey…

No more little monkeys
Sitting in a tree!

I made these adorable monkeys using a template that you can download!

5 monkeys

And just click the image below for a larger template to make your own 5 little monkeys!

How did it go?

Awesome!  The kids loved it! I had the monkey’s up on the flannel board and then used a puppet to SNAP them up!  Except, we did not have an alligator puppet so instead I used a dinosaur.  The kids thought it was hilarious and did not question the ability for monkey’s and dinosaur’s to exist in the same time period.

Flannel Friday this week is hosted by Sarah at Miss Sarah’s Storytime!

  1. Remind me the next time I see you to show you the sign language actions for this fingerplay. Kids and adults love it. If a storytime is particularly chaotic and out of control, using this can result in zen-like calm in the kids!
