The kids have been having so much fun learning about frogs this week.
We have been singing this fun song about Metamorphosis.
We have it in our pocket chart and the littles were thrilled to have their own emergent
reader of the poem to color and take home.
A HUGE thank you to my sweet friend, Deedee Wills! I was working on my frog unit
and I was stuck on the poem. I called her on the phone and she came through for me.
Thank you, Deedee!!!
This unit has a lot of fun games that we've been playing this week.
This game is called, Munching Flies. The kids roll the game dice to create subtraction sentences.
We used black beans for the flies.
This game is called, Frog Warts!
The kids lay out their fly cards in numerical order.
Then, they pick a frog card from the basket, count the warts and
match it to a fly card to make a sum of 10.
NOTE: ALL of the games have First Grade versions included as well.
For first grade the object of the game is to make sums of 20.
This game is a literacy center game.
The littles spin the spinner, say the blend and then cover a picture that starts with that blend.
The first one to get Five in a Row is the winner.
The kids each turn over a card. They compare the cards and the student with the largest number
gets to move their frog to the next lily pad. The first one to get their froggy to the last lily pad wins.
This game has LOTS of different versions for both Kindergarten and First Grade.
It has tens and ones cards to compare (as shown), number cards, addition cards for solving and then comparing the sums to find the greatest number, subtraction cards for solving and then comparing the differences to find the greatest number.

It's on sale until midnight tonight.
