Songs
Monster Man
I am the monster man!
(Point to self)

I wave my arms! I roll my eyes!
(Suit actions to words)

I shake my head! I gnash my teeth!

I jump up high! I say "Boo!"

I sit down very quietly, too!

Five Scary Monsters
(Count off on fingers)

Five scary monsters howling out a roar,

One ran away, and then there were four.

Four scary monsters hiding in a tree,

One fell out, and then there were three.

Three scary monsters eating spider stew,

One got sick, and then there were two.

Two scary monsters having lots of fun,

One ran off, and then there was one.

One scary monster, afraid to be a hero,

He ran away, and then there were zero.
