Monkey Tricks

Listen to some of the 5th graders saying the poem Monkey TrickS by John Rice.




Monkey tricks


Deep in the jungle
where the sun  never shines
see the Mighty Monkey
swinging on the vines.
.
Deep in the jungle
climbing up the trees
see the Mighty Monkey
bend her hairy knees.
.
Deep in the jungle
where the tall tree grows
see the Mighty Monkey
scratch her coconut nose.
.
Deep in the jungle
hear the drums beat
see the Mighty Monkey
shake her dancing feet.
