Monkey Puzzle Song Gapfill MakatonQuick View

Monkey Puzzle Song Gapfill Makaton

A gapfill for the Monkey Puzzle Song by Julia Donaldson on YouTube. The missing words are available in a box with a picture prompt for differentiated support. There is also a worksheet for Makaton signs for animals from the story. This took my class a full hour. We listened to the song to enjoy it. Then we listened twice to do the gapfill. Then we read through the song lyrics in feedback to check our answers. Then we sang the song two times - trying with actions the second time! Then we discussed what Makaton was and made the signs and guessed which animals from the story they could be. Then the students drew their own pictures of the animals next to the signs.
