Frog Storytime

 

all songs, fingerplays, and ideas are used for educational purposes only and not for profit.

Where possible, authors are noted.

 

Fingerplays and Rhymes:

Five little frogs sitting on a log (hold up five fingers)

This little frog is still a polywog (point to thumb)

This little frog wears a happy grin (point to index finger)

This little frog is tall and thing (point to tall finger)

This little frog can jump real high (point to ring finger)

This little frog wants to fly (point to little finger)

So he calls out "Ribbit!" and a bird flies by,

And takes him for a ride way up to the sky! (make wings with both hands)

(From Storytime Crafts)

 

Five little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs,
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs,
Glub Glub!
Four little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs, Yum Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were three green speckled frogs,
Glub Glub!
Three little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs, Yum Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were two green speckled frogs,
Glub Glub!
Two little speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs, Yum Yum!
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there was one green speckled frog,
Glub Glub!
One little speckled frog
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs, Yum Yum!
He jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were no green speckled frogs,
Glub Glub!
