Frog and Toad

My First Grade Students LOVE These Books!

Here's a look at Our Frog and Toad Inspired Books

We've read many Frog and Toad themed books this week and these two books were classroom favorites!

Here's a Look At Our Frog Art

This project is several years old and the idea came from an issue of Mailbox magazine.
But, it is still a favorite!

Are You In Need of Some More Frog Fun?

Hope you're having a "hoppy" week!


  1. I loved Frog and Toad too! My 6 year old wants nothing to do with me reading them though.

  2. Hi Jenny, I did want to suggest making connections with the book. And in this case, make the connections prior to reading it with your child to build the interest level. For example, make cookies and talk about will power before reading the chapter "Cookies". Plant seeds and wait for the seeds to grow and then read the chapter "The Garden". I suggest trying the activity prior to reading the book to make the self or real world connection and then you can move on to other Frog and Toad books to make those text to text connections. (Usually we make the connections after reading, but in this case, I think it would make for great conversation during and after reading.) The Frog and Toad books are definitely on my "not to be missed" first grade book list. (Sorry, it has taken me so long to get this comment posted, but the original comment was "lost" when blogger went down a week or so ago.)~Michelle

  3. Where can I find a pattern of Frog and Toad?
