ACTIVITIES

Action Rhyme:Mr. Bullfrog” (via Perry Public Library)
Here’s Mister Bullfrog (make a fist)
Sitting on a rock (put fish on flat palm)
Into the water he jumps (jump fist up)
Kerplop! (clap once loudly)

Finger Rhyme:  “Two Little Frogs” (via Preschool  Express)
Two little frogs sitting on a hill,
One named Jack, one named Jill.
“Jump,” said Jack. “Jump,” said Jill.
And they both jumped down the great big hill.
Come back, Jack. Come back, Jill.
And they both jumped up the great big hill.

Flannelboard: “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” (via Storytime Katie)
Five green and speckled frogs
Sitting on a hollow log
Eating the most delicious bugs – YUM YUM
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are only four speckled frogs – RIBBIT RIBBIT
(count down from there)

CRAFT: Frog on a Stick Puppet!

Frog Craft

I’ve had this craft prepped and ready to go for a couple of months. I used various sized, hand-held circle craft punches to create all of the circular elements. I made a template for the head and tongue. Then, I spent a couple of hours tracing copies, and cutting everything out.

REVIEW:

I prepared this storytime outline, and craft but did not conduct these storytime sessions due to a family emergency and extended leave of absence.
