This last Tuesday we learned all about frogs. We practiced hopping and jumping and sucking up bugs. We touched ooey gooey eggs (actually plant beads) and sang my version of 5 green and speckled frogs…this time it went 5 brown and bumpy toads….
We played with our felt board and made the lifecycle of a frog. We even pretended to be polywogs during the hip-hop dance party portion of the class. We grooved and swayed like tadpoles to Polywog in a Bog by the Bare Naked Ladies. It was the most amusement seeing all the little ones jumping at the same time to the hip, hop beat of “jump jump”.
We ended the class with the story Tadpole Rex by Kurt Cyrus (one of my favorite stories)
and made our frog catching a fly game/craft.
Not only are frogs our friends, but they are fun friends!
