We have Mr. Monkey with us today. He is the main character in the book, Mr. Monkey Takes a Hike, by Jeff Mack.
“Mr. Monkey, tell us about your character?”
I like to play games on my computer. I’m athletic and determined.
“In the story you have a problem, can you tell us what happen to you?”
Yes a bird stole my computer controller. I spent a whole day trying to get it back.
I ran, jumped, and swung and duck to get to the bird. If you read the book you will see all the places I went that day.
“Did you get the controller for the computer back?”
Read the book please. I’m too tired to tell you.
“Fair enough, we will read the book and thanks for sharing today.”
Monkey Goes Hiking
By Vicky Manning
You see the monkey
I see the monkey
So let’s take monkey hiking.
Through the trees
Feel the breeze?
Through the water
See the otter?
Through the weeds
Over the rocks
We meet a fox.
Monkey, Fox, and everyone go hiking.
(Repeat the hike and add an animal at the end until the class can’t recall all the animals.)
