How I Predicted Today Going…
Since one of our previous books turned into the frog direction (even though it wasn’t about frogs…) I wasn’t sure if the kids would come up with new ideas for todays frog story (and they did come up with some repeats which is fine, I just don’t want them getting bored…) but the biggest surprise with this story was that they wanted to discuss so much about how the rabbit was mad at the frog and how they said sorry to each other in the end. They really are getting good at understanding feelings and emotions better.

Activities Produced from that Story:
We pretended to be frogs
We did frog races
Made frog cards for our monthly community project
Played a frog jumping game
Made a frog water bin
Had a discussion about feelings & emotions
Talked about the color green and found things around the room that were green

What We Learned Today:
Used large muscles when doing our frog races & frog jumps
Learned about the community & those in need when doing our cards for our community project
Worked on fine motor skills when coloring our frog cards for our community project
Worked on fine motor skills when playing the frog jumping game
