BOUNCE RHYME (bounce along with child in lap)


Two Little Frogs

Two little frogs sitting on a hill,

One named Jack and one named Jill.

“Jump,” said Jack.

“Jump,” said Jill.

And the both jumped down the great hill.

Jump back, Jack.

Jump back, Jill.

And the both jumped up the great big hill.



ACTION RHYMES


All the Little Frogs

(tune: “The Wheels On the Bus”)


All the little frogs go Hop! Hop! Hop!

Hop! Hop! Hop! Hop! Hop! Hop!

All the little frogs go Hop! Hop! Hop!

All around the pond.


All the little frogs go splash splash splash…

All the little frogs go swim swim swim…

All the little frogs go to sleep…



“Croak” Said the Frog

“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)


Four Little Frogs

One little frog balancing

On a lily pad of green.

He thought it was, so much fun,

He called for another frog to come.

Two little frogs balancing

On a lily pad of green.

They thought it was, so much fun,

They called for another frog to come.


Three little frogs balancing

On a lily pad of green.

They thought it was, so much fun,

They called for another frog to come.


Four little frogs balancing

On a lily pad of green.

They thought it was so much fun

Until they sank into the mud!

Glub, glub, glub!



I’m A Little Green Frog

(tune: “Little White Duck”)


I’m a little green frog, swimming in the water.

A little green frog doing what he ‘otter.

I jumped upon a lily pad

I caught a fly and I said, “I’m glad”.

I’m a little green frog, sitting in the sun.

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!


I’m a little green frog, sitting in the sun.

A little green frog, having lots of fun.

I thought I saw a friend swim by

So I jumped in the water to say “hi”.

I’m a little green frog, swimming in the water.

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!
