Introduction to the Life Cycle of a Frog
This pictures-only book by Susan Knobler a great resource to introduce the four life cycles of a frog to young learners: Egg, Tadpole, Young Frog, Adult Frog. Shown above is the most…ahem…graphic page. If you’re ready for a frank conversation about how baby frogs are made, this is your book!
I found this at the Goodwill, and haven’t found it on Amazon (she does have a Black Ant book I am dying to get my hands on!).
These frogs were another Dollar Tree find: a 36-pack for 1.00! Since our letters of the week were S, R, I and P we did a variation on this game. I have included a full set of printable letters on my Teachers Pay Teachers site, if you’d like to try this game yourself.
No time to run to the store? That’s okay – I have a frog template available for purchase for $1 so you can print your own right now! The downloadable file includes blank flies in extended rainbow colors and in black/plain only – as well as flies in both A-Z and a-z formats:
