Songs
Five Little Frogs
Five green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs (yum, yum!)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool,
Then there were four green speckled frogs. (glub, glub)

4 green and speckled frogs...
3 green and speckled frogs...
2 green and speckled frogs...
1 green and speckled frog...

(End with no green and speckled frogs)
Froggies
(Point to fingers of one hand)
This little froggie broke his toe.
This little froggie said, "oh,oh,oh!"
This little froggie laughed and was glad.
This little froggie cried and was sad.
This little froggie did just what he should.
Ran straight to the doctor as fast as he could.
Six Little Frogs
Tune: Six Little Ducks

Six little frogs that I once knew,
Green ones, brown ones, red ones, too.
But the one bullfrog with the freckles on his throat,
He ruled them all with a croak, croak, croak.

Down to the blue pond they would go,
Hop, jump, hop, jump, to and fro.
But the one bullfrog with the freckles on his throat,
He ruled them all with a croak, croak, croak.

(Can repeat and count down to one frog)
Craft
