Frog Story Time – Toddler

Opening song

Sign language: frog

Book: Frogs by Emily Green

Song (with puppet): “Little Tadpole” (Tune: “Frere Jacques”)
Little tadpole, Little tadpole
Lost his tail, lost his tail.
Now he has two feet
Now he has four feet
Look a frog! Look a frog!

Song: “Can you leap like a frog?” – Greg & Steve: Kids in Action

Book: If You’re Hoppy by April Pulley Sayre, illustrated by Jackie Urbanovic

Song (with prop): “Five green and speckled frogs”

Rhyme:
Crazy crabs walk sideways, (have kids step sideways)
What a silly way to go
Snails slip slide forwards (slide feet forward, slowly)
And that is very slow
Ducks waddle, waddle,  (waddle waddle)
And that is funny too,
Bullfrogs hop, hop hop (hop)
And that’s the best way to go!

Book: The Wide-Mouthed Frog by Keith Faulkner, illustrated by Jonathan Lambert
