Life cycle of a frog and ADORABLE frog book!!

We read the CUTEST frog book today in class.  It is 999 Tadpoles Find a New Home, by Ken Kimura.  It is about a family of frogs who are looking for a bigger pond.  A hawk grabs Daddy Frog with his claws and all of the other frogs hop and link on to help dad.  999 frogs later, the hawk if flying around with a huge chain of frogs!  It is such a cute story, and it is great for predicting and infering.  Here is the book:

After we read the story, I had the children draw a picture of thier favorite part of the frog book!!!

If you have read my blog in the last couple of weeks, you know that I aquired some dionsaur tadpoles (as I like to call them).  I am creeped out by these bullfrog tadpoles because they are so jumbo.  I walked in the other monrning and this is how I found "Bubblegum" sitting...(see him sitting on the bottom of our Nemo statue???)

We made a life cycle of a frog sequence on our door.  I gave each student all of the parts, they cut them out and I taped them to the door.  It is so colorful, and the students love expalining the life cycle of a frog craft to thier siblings when they arrive at school!

To go with the frog theme, here is a Life Cycle of a Frog Unit that you can purchase at my TpT Store.

  2. I love your frog life cycle door!!! Where did you get the cute pictures for them to cut out? I would love to make that next week. We are doing Frogs!thank you!

  3. You are so creative!!! I love how you incorporate the lesson/story into so many different crafts and activities. It seems like the best way to teach the kids because I'm sure it's super fun for them. I wish I had you as my kindergarden teacher!

  4. Very interesting book. I think the kids love it. I love to read but writing texts is a nightmare for me. And when teachers began to ask me to write essays, I was at a loss. I am glad that I found a nurses essay writing service on the Internet and consulted with writers. I have ordered several essays and have been satisfied. If I do not have time to write a voluminous work, I use additional resources.
