FIVE LITTLE SPECKLED FROGS!

This morning little "E" set up a small world scene with pebbles, glass pebbles, a blue mat, a piece of wood and plastic frogs. She told me they were in a pond and made them hop from one stone to another. "hop hop hop!"


After a while she lined them all up on the piece of wood. This gave me an idea. I started to sing the rhyme "5 little speckled frogs" and as we got to the part where "one jumped off", I made one frog jump back in to the pool.


We continued singing and making each frog jump back in to the pool.



After the song finished she set them all up again ready to sing again.


NEXT STEPS: 
    • Use other props to enhance rhymes.
