This week’s theme was frogs!

Flannel Board:

Five Little Froggies

5 little froggies sleeping with a snore, one woke up and that left 4

4 little froggies sipping on some tea, one burned his tongue and that left 3

3 little froggies reading the morning news, one got a paper cut and that left 2

2 little froggies late and on the run, one called a cab and that left 1

1 little froggy strolling in the sun, he forgot to go to work and that left none!

Books:

Check out my Frog tag on my Shelfari page for more good books that I didn’t have time to read!

Craft:

We did a very simple but fun craft.  We used die cut frogs and lily pads and made cute pond scenes.  We even made our frogs pop up!

One response to “Frog Storytime!

  1. I used party blowers (the paper ones that roll out) and put a piece of scratchy Velcro on the very end. I bought plastic flies and bugs (available at dollar stores; fishing departments) and put the soft Velcro on the bugs. The children pretend to be frogs and blow the party blower to catch the bugs! I let the children take them home. It is great for oral motor development also!
