Frog Story Time

This was last weeks story time theme. We had a huge rain a month or so ago and we still have some big puddles hanging around. The local toad population has supplied us with lots of tadpoles to play with!

Last week- we even went for a walk and watched as THOUSANDS of baby frogs hopped their way to new homes. That was really fun to watch the boys chase and catch and love these baby frogs.

Look how little!

I started our Story time- playing a modified version of "Pin the Tale on the Donkey"- except it was more like, "Put a Frog on the Log"

Then we straightened them up and sang the song: 5 Little speckled Frogs

After the we sang the song a few times- I read these two books about frogs and then a few more stories that had frogs in the pictures. (visit for full outline.)

It was so much of fun!

I think the best way to think of story time themes- is to look around you. What is happening in your world? I know- many of you are knee deep in snow right now, but this spring when your toads and frogs are laying their eggs... this will be a great story time! The boys and I really enjoyed ourselves!
