As we were studying frogs and watching our tadpoles grow we
played with the old rhyme “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”.
At the flannel board the children could retell the rhyme and
move the frogs on and off the log.
We played with the rhyme on the carpet using stuffies and a piece of driftwood.
We played with the rhyme at the water table.
On one side held 5 little frogs on a log and the other side held rubbery frogs
with 'plastercine-made' tadpoles and water beads.
The frogs hopped on and off the logs and rocks,
that were added on the second day.
We pretended the water beads were the frog eggs. The clear beads are hard
to see in the water so the children were surprised when they reach into the
water and felt the beads.
