I know it's Monday, but this is one of my all-time favorite songs that you can sing any day.

Today Is Sunday
Today is Sunday. (Put hands in arm pits and flap 
Sunday – chicken. like a chicken.)
All you lucky children, 
Well, that’s O.K.

Monday – peanut butter (Extend left hand and spread peanut butter with right hand.)

Tuesday – snap beans (Snap fingers.)

Wednesday – soup (Pretend to slurp soup.)

Thursday – ice cream (Pretend to lick a cone.)

Friday – hotdogs (Slap hands together.)

Saturday - pizza (Extend palm in air as if carrying a pizza.)


And here's the Spanish version that my webmaster Alex May created.

And thanks to Mariela Anderson I've got a sign language version.


Write the days of the week on seven paper plates as shown. Let children draw the foods in the song or color the attached illustrations and glue them to the plates. Pass these out to seven children and let them stand in front of the room and hold up their plate at the appropriate time in the song.

Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys swinging from a tree, (Hold up five fingers.)
Teasing Mr. Alligator, “Can’t catch me.”
Along came Mr. Alligator quiet as can be,
And snatched a monkey right out of that tree!

Four little monkeys… (Hold up appropriate number of

Three…two…one… fingers on hand.)

“Missed me, missed me. (Stick thumbs in ears and tease.)

Now you gotta kiss me!”

Activities: Choose five children to be monkeys and one child to be the alligator to act out this song.

I've even got videos for you in English and Spanish!
