I've had various versions of Five Little Monkeys Swinging in a Tree/Jumping on the Bed in my classroom over the years.  But a couple of the monkeys seem to have gone missing from the tree set, and I was never that fond of the laminated version I made of the bed set, so...

Mel's desk and Storytime Katie to the rescue!
I'll use my alligator hand puppet with this set, but he's in the puppet basket at school right now so he's not pictured here...

After making these I remembered seeing Amy's super cute monkey version of The Itsy Bitsy Spider over at One Little Librarian.  All I needed was a lion to complete the set.  I googled "cute simple lion clipart" and used the first image that came up as my pattern.  The results and the words to the song are below.  I can't wait to use them! ( I also have a bunch of foam letters that I'm going to put out on a table with the tree and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom with my three-year-olds next week.  Should be a fun time! )
This particular set isn't for sale, but please check out my shop with many of my other sets:

The itsy bitsy monkey climbed up the coconut tree.
Down came a coconut and hit him on the knee -- OWWW!
Out came a lion shaking his mighty mane
& the itsy bitsy monkey went up the tree again.
