- Program Goals
- Pass on early literacy message and encourage families to continue early literacy at home
- Encourage circulation and storytime attendance
- Reach families who are unable to attend storytime
- Notes for the future
- Last used Summer 2015
Use the five early literacy practices; talking, singing, reading, playing and writing with these books and projects!
TALK about frogs. Have you ever seen a frog? Where do frogs live? What do they eat? What kind of sounds do you think a frog would make?
Get ready to WRITE by decorating your frog puppet and bugs.
SING a frog song, like Five Green and Speckled Frogs together.
PLAY with your frog. Tape the frog to the popsicle stick to make a puppet. Can she catch the worm or the dragonfly for her dinner?
READ some of these stories about frogs (find more in the ANIMALS/AMPHIBIANS neighborhood)
- Frog with the big mouth by Teresa Bateman
- I don't want to be a frog by Dev Petty
- Frog Song by Brenda Guiberson
- Tadpole Rex by Kurt Cyrus

I got this idea from...someone on the internet. Somewhere. My associate made the handy box sign - you can't really tell, but it's got pictures of the subjects and numbers around the edge. I used an old suggestion pot and did the numbers. The bottom of the pot has a coil of yarn to fill it up and then a bunch of glass marbles to keep the sticks from sitting at the bottom.
This is the activity station for August. I had a volunteer cut out and staple together the little memory books. So far the kids have mostly been interested in drawing on the table and taking the books home to work on, but that's cool too. The form for the books is here.
