Five Green & Speckled Frogs

A language extension appropriate for the Toddlers on up, any child who likes to sing and count! Below are the lyrics to the popular Raffi song. I bought the frogs at ACMOORE and sewed the pool and log from felt and fabric I had. The kiddos LOVE this work, it is chosen every day.



Five Green & Speckled Frogs
(Hold five fingers (frogs) on top of your other arm (log)
Sat on a bumpy log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool (jump a finger off the log into the pool)
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are Four green speckled frogs (Hold up four fingers)
(Fold arms and say in a deep voice:) Glug, Glug

Four Green & Speckled Frogs
Sat on a bumpy log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are Three green speckled frogs
(Fold arms and say in a deep voice:) Glug, Glug

Three Green & Speckled frogs
Sat on a bumpy log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are Two green speckled frogs
(Fold arms and say in a deep voice:) Glug, Glug

Two Green & speckled frogs
Sat on a bumpy log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there is one green speckled frog
(Fold arms and say in a deep voice:) Glug, Glug

One Green & speckled frog
Sat on a bumpy log
Eating the most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
It jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there is no more speckled frogs
(Fold arms and say in a deep voice:) Glug, Glug

I like Raffi, actually. Sometimes I just listen to him all be myself!

By the way, I posted on my award. Thanks again! :-)

Love this idea! I just found a link to some green speckled frog cut-outs here: http://tinyurl.com/cwd5cq.
We'll mount those on some card stock and put contact paper on them.
Thanks for the great ideas!
