Monster Songs


I made this silly song up for one of my preschool students when they wanted a “monster song”. It has been a hit and most requested on ever since! Go figure!

Once there was a monster, on the playground,

He hid under the slide, then chased us all around! (yell) BOO!!!


Little Monster, Little Monster

Prepare 6 to 8 colored beds from construction paper and laminate, then place Velcro or felt on the back of each bed cut-out. Also create a monster cutout small enough to hide behind the bed cutouts. Place each colored bed on the flannel board, while children are not looking hide the monster behind one of the beds. Allow each child to choice a color bed to recite this poem as you find the little monster under the bed.

***

Little monster, little monster,

Are you under the (red) bed?


I use this song in conjunction with the book “There’s A Monster In My Closet.”

There’s A Monster In My Closet (Sung to: If You’re Happy and You Know It)
Words By: Miss Daylene

There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It’s Green! (Rawwwr Rawwwr)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It’s Green! (Rawwwr Rawwwr)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It’s Very Very Green
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It’s Green! (Rawwwr Rawwwr)

There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Smells! (Pew Pew!)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Smells! (Pew Pew!)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Really Really Smells!
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Smells! (Pew Pew!)

There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Snorts! (Snort Snort!)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Snorts! (Snort Snort!)
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Really Really Snorts!
There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Snorts! (Snort Snort!)

Have the children substitute the word “green” and the words in parenthesis with their own ideas. For instance:

There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Cries! (Boo Hoo!)

There’s A Monster In My Closet
And It Jumps! (Jump Jump!)
