Preschool Storytime – Frogs March 26, 2014

Hi everyone! This week we will hop into spring with stories about frogs.

Welcome Song – So Happy You’re Here – by Hap Palmer

Book – “A Frog in the Bog” by Karma Wilson.  A frog in the bog grows larger and larger as he eats more and more bugs, until he attracts the attention of an alligator who puts an end to his eating.

 

 

 

Action rhyme- Croak said the frog

Croak said the frog (Make croaking sound)

With his golden eyes (fists up to eyes)

Sitting on a lily pad, (crouch on the ground)

Catching flies (grab air with hand)

I have a sticky tongue, (stick out tongue)

It’s as fast as can be…

And I catch the mosquitoes (catch bugs again)

1-2-3 (count on three fingers)

Flannelboard: Five Green and Speckled Frogs

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)

Book – “The Biggest Frog in Australia”  by Susan L. Roth.  When a thirsty frog drinks up all the water in Australia, the other animals must think of a way to make him give it up.

Song- Glunk, Glunk…The Little Green Frog

Glunk, glunk went the little green frog one day.

(Stick out and catch food)

Glunk, glunk went the little green frog!

Glunk, glunk went the little green frog one day.

And his eyes went blink blink blink!

(blink and swallow)

Hop Hop went the little green frog one day.

(hop)

Hop hop went the little green frog!

Hop hop went the little green frog one day

And his mouth went gulp, gulp, gulp!

(gulp)

Splash Splash went the little green frog one day.

Splash Splash went the little green frog!

Splash Splash went the little green frog one day

And he swam  swam swam away
