A little frog in the pond (from Ms. Katie's Storytime Wiki)
A little frog in a pond am I
Hippity hippity hop
And I can bounce in the air so high
Hippity hippity hop

Croak said the frog (from Child Fun)
Croak said the frog, (make croaking sound)
With his golden eyes. (fists up to eyes)
Sitting on a lily pad, (crouch on the ground)
Catching flies. (grab air with hand)
I have a sticky tongue, (stick out tongue)
It’s as fast as can be…
And I catch the mosquitoes (catch bugs again),
1-2-3. (count on three fingers)

Here's Mr. Bullfrog (from Storytime Extras, done with scarves)
Here's Mr. Bullfrog (wave scarf)
Sitting on a rock (put scarf on fist)
Into the water he jumps (raise scarf)
KERPLOP! (throw scarf)

Row, Row, Row Your Boat with parachute

Literacy tip of the week: Practicing numbers is actually related to developing your child's storytelling skills. It helps them understand that events in a story proceed in a certain order. For instance, one event comes first and another comes second.
