Froggy Fun

Ribbit! Today at Storytime, we focused on frogs! First we read Jump, Frog, Jump! by Robert Kalan, a cumulative story that begins with a frog sitting on a log and ends with a big surprise. The we heard Ribbit! by Rodrigo Folgueira, about a pig who wanted to make friends with some frogs. 999 Tadpoles by Ken Kimura told the story of a very large family of frogs and the scary adventure they have while trying to find a new place to live. The Icky Sticky Frog by Dawn Bentley and A Frog in the Bog by Karma Wilson both told about the insects and other small creatures a frog eats - and how he captures them with his long and sticky tongue!
Between stories, we made a frog face from a folded paper plate. We collaged the outside with green papers and added cotton balls and black felt scraps for the eyes. Inside the frog's mouth, we colored with red, then glued a coiled red tongue made from a long strip of paper wrapped tightly around a marker. His tongue looked just like the tongues we saw in the stories!
We said this poem several times! Try it - it's fun!

Mr. Bullfrog
Here is Mister Bullfrog (make a fist)
Sitting on a rock (put fist on flat palm)
He jumps Into the water (jump fist up)
Kerplop! (clap once loudly)
