5 Green and Speckled Frogs
As part of our learning about ponds, we learned the 5 green and speckled frogs song. I made a pocket chart version for my students to use during Literacy Work Stations. We also put a version at our Drama Station so the children can act it out. I will be putting it in our Listening Station and if we can get a book version created by the children, it will also go in our Library Work Station.
(Yes, I do see the “typo” in the second to the last line…I’ll have to fix it after Spring Break. 🙂 )
I have an intern from our High School in my classroom four days a week and part of her internship requires that she teaches lessons related to our theme. Two weeks ago when we were learning about pond habitats, she helped the children create this cute pond:
She made homemade blue playdough and then collected gravel and twigs and grass from our playground so the children could “decorate” it to look like a real pond habitat. Cute! 🙂
