This week we have slowly begun our frog unit - the kids have loved reading the frog stories!!
One of their favorites so far is:
The Icky Sticky Frog byDawn Bentley
This is a cute little story about a frog at a pond who very quietly waits for his dinner - which ends up being a fly, a beetle and a grasshopper. The story ends with a little bit of a surprise however as the frog plans to eat a butterfly as well.
My kids love this book - it's certainly a fun read with great illustrations.
To go along with the story we made a frog craft with a long tongue!
I got the idea from this craft from Danielle's Place, but have altered it a little bit and because I am not a member at her site I had to draw the legs and arms myself from green construction paper.
I also took a long piece of red construction paper and rolled it up with a paper clip for a while to give our frog a curly tongue.
We started by painting a paper plate green on the backside - I ran out of green paint on this particular day so we painted the underside/inside of our frog red.
We attached the back legs on the bottom of the plate on the back side.
