(No, we didn't read any Frog & Toad books... oops!)
Hello, How Are You? by Dr. Jean
The Mud Fairy by Amy Young
Then we learned what "mimic" means. We listened to 6 different recordings of frogs and toads then mimicked their sounds. The animals we listened to are: bull frog, Fowler's Toad, American Toad, Eastern Spadefoot, Oak Toad, and Eastern Narrowmouth. I used the CD and book from Lang Elliot called The Calls of Frogs and Toads.
Then we watched two short videos of the Spring Peeper and the Mink Frog on R. Korb's DVD Calls of Wisconsin Frogs.
Then we danced and hopped around with wand ribbons to John Ondrasik's song The Hoppity Song.
It is Time to Say Goodbye to Our Friends
Wave your froggy tongues goodbye.
Wave your froggy feet goodbye.
Hop your froggy feet goodbye.
Wave your tadpole tails goodbye.
Wave your hands and say "goodbye."
