Frog Fun!

My students are so "hoppy" to be learning about frogs!
(Sorry for the lame joke - I couldn't resist!).
This is my first time doing a frog unit and it's so much fun!
I've actually learned a lot too!
Here's what we've done so far...

This is the anchor chart that we have been referring to.  I am so amazed at the knowledge my students have been building just by reviewing and adding to this chart!

Here is our journal entry that we wrote this morning.  After brainstorming and recording our answers on a Venn diagram (sorry, forgot to take a picture of that!) students wrote one fact in each area.

I love this craft!  I've had some large paper plates sitting in my cupboards for some time now so I decided to create a cute frog craft.  If you look closely you will see that there is a frog fact written inside each mouth.  Adorable!
(I displayed these around the lifecycle of the frog chart on my bulletin board)

Here's a closer look at the frog craft.

I made this frog number activity for my students to work on this week.  It goes nicely with our theme and the book we are reading, Jump, Frog, Jump!
(Have you read this book?  It's really fun and the students love chiming in "Jump, Frog, Jump!" on every other page.)
You can click on the picture for your free download!

Enjoy the rest of your week!  Ribbit! Ribbit!
