This is a classic song that makes a fantastic flannel board.
I love using the pocket pond (just two pieces of blue flannel glued together and shaped) so my frogs can disappear into the pool.
And, yes, they are different shades of green. I originally only had three frogs for my baby storytime and couldn’t find that same froggy shade of green.
Five Green and Speckled Frogs
Five green and speckled frogs
Sitting on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bugs
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Then there were four green speckled frogs
Another option with this song is to teach the kids hand gestures.
Five green and speckled frogs /Sitting on a speckled log
Rest five fingers on your other arm (held horizontal like a log)
Eating some most delicious bugs / (yum yum)
One jumped into the pool / Where it was nice and cool
Jump one finger off your arm
