Coming off a fun row of The Salamander Room, T decided he'd like to learn about frogs and turtles. We used the B4FIAR title, "Play with Me" by Marie Hall Ets, as the basis of our row and did a few things from the manual, but here is all the other stuff we covered over two weeks!
Frog 100's Chart: Can you see the frog?
After T completed it, he couldn't figure out what it looked like...
The Continent Hop & Continent Twister: we learned that frogs are found on every continent except Antarctica, so after becoming breathless from the Continent Hop from Spell Outloud, T played Twister-- "Continent Style"-- he didn't last long! He had never played before!
Frog Hop Math: Using a homemade 100's Chart and the Fill it In Worksheet, we practiced 10 more, 10 less, 1 more, and 1 less.
The green paper plate is our lily pad and each picture shows a different part of the life cycle; we used sticky dots for the body and T labeled the stages and drew parts.
Frog Anticipatory Set: LOVE making these!
T wanted his frog to be blue! We also added a party-blower for some froggie tongue action!
Lily Pad Vowel Hop: I drew 5 lily pads and wrote a vowel in each one. I said a simple CVC or CVCC word to T and he had to jump on the correct vowel.
Turtle Pancakes: Our turtle looks nothing like the original.... still tasted good though!
T loves tracing, so I printed off some more worksheets from Homeschool Creations PreK Pond Pack
