More counting songs for: Swimming Classes
I'm avoiding the work that actually needs to be done, so I thought I'd write a post on monkeys instead :). I'm only including one song right now because I just stole the idea, but I'll add more in the future. Swimming songs are coming soon...
5 Little Monkeys (jumping on the bed-not being eaten by alligators)
Pam Evans, owner of Gold Star Gymnastics, was the instructor for the course and she mentioned using the 5 monkeys song to practice falling techniques. I love it!
My favorite version of this song is by Asheba. It veers away from the traditional song slightly, but it's a fun Reggae version. I found it on on the Putumayo Presents: Animal Playground. I am a big fan of most of the Putumayo Kids CD's. They're great for different themes and range from upbeat Caribbean songs to slow bedtime/savasana melodies.
