Five Green and Speckled Frogs, an Illustrated Song

Posted on: June 25, 2014

FIVE GREEN AND SPECKLED FROGS is a fun movement and counting song.  I have assembled a book you can print and put into a 3-ring binder.  My illustration included participation cards for child volunteers to play the frogs while everyone sings-along.

These are my instructions for assembling the book for yourself into a 3-ring binder then singing this cute counting songs using child volunteers and the FROG NUMBER CARDS that are included with my illustration:

  • Print the pages
  • Put p. 1 (front cover/title sheet) into the front clear pocket of a 3 ring binder
  • Put p. 3 (back cover) into the back clear pocket of the 3 ring binder
  • Use scissors to for p. 4 and cut out the sliver of paper with the title of the book on it and slip the sliver into the clear plastic side edge pocket of the 3 ringer binder so you can find the book on a shelf.
  • Put each of the remaining pages in its own sheet protector
  • Put all protected sheets, in order, into the 3 ring binder, except for thesheets with big blue numbers 0-5, put those into one of the inside pocketsof the 3 ring binder
  • To sing the song with a group of children, get 6 volunteers to stand upand hold each of the sheets with blue numbers. As you sing the song(flipping the pages as you sing), the child with the appropriate number will sit down after the lyric, “One Jumped into the pool.” For example, when you begin with 5 frogs on the log, the child holding the card with #5 on it will sit down when that frog jumps in the pool. Each child will sit down when his/her number is sung. When and the child with the log sits down, the song is over and everyone claps for what a great job all the volunteers did.
  • HAVE FUN!
