Five Green and Speckled 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 and speckled frogs.

(Continue counting down with each verse)

Four green and speckled frogs . . .
Three green and speckled frogs  . . .
Two green and speckled frogs  . . .

One 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 no green and speckled frogs.

Here is a Bunny Fingerplay
Here is a bunny with ears so funny
(hold up index and middle fingers for ears)
And here is his hole in the ground
(make a circle with the other hand)
At the first sound he hears, he pricks up his
ears (extend two fingers)
And jumps in the hole in the ground
(fingers jump into the hole)

The Turtle
There was a little turtle
That lived in a box.
(put hands together to make a box)
He swam in a puddle,
(make swimming movements)
And he climbed on the rocks.
He jumped at a mosquito, (bounce baby)
He jumped at a flea, (bounce baby)
He jumped at a minnow, (bounce baby)
And he jumped at me. (bounce baby)
He caught the mosquito, (clap)
He caught the flea, (clap)
He caught the minnow, (clap)
But he didn’t catch me!! (make a proud face)


Baby Shark

Baby shark do-do doot-doot

Now we swim,
from the shark
