Growing Frogs Book GIVEAWAY

Book of the Week GIVEAWAY with Read-Along CD : Growing Frogs by Vivian French

Why we love this book:

Read along as a little girl and her mother collect frog spawn from a pond. Bright illustrations chronicle their frog adventure. Through the story and facts on each page, children learn about the life cycle of a frog. If your children are lucky enough to collect frog spawn of their own, the book teaches how to care for the developing tadpoles.

The book is narrated by Alan Marriott, best known for the voices on the Bob the Builder T.V. show.

Life Cycle of a Frog

Alrighty, let me try to summarize all of this:

  • I’ve included the Life Cycles of a Frog blank book Miss Enigma illustrated. Your children can create their own illustrations.
  • Miss Enigma was so proud of the her illustrated book that she asked me to make her version available for you to print.
  • If you have little ones, you may want to print the illustrated version of Life Cycles of a Frog.
  • In addition, MacGyver illustrated picture cards of each stage of the frog’s life cycle.
  • Little ones can simply glue the correct picture on the correct page of the blank book.
  • The cards can also be cut apart and kiddos can put them in the correct order.
  • I’ve also included a blank template of the picture cards, so children can create their own illustrations.

So here we go . . .

Word Work and Sentence Writing

Life Cycle of a Frog FREE printable book

I have started a little box of word cards with Miss Enigma. It includes family names and a few easy familiar words. I’ve selected the words from our easy reader books and her journal writing.

  • First, I introduced the new word frog. I always write the word card with Miss Enigma. I do not do it before class.
  • Next, I dictated the sentence, “I see a frog.”
  • Miss Enigma selected the correct word cards from her known words.
  • Miss Enigma used the cards to build the sentence, “I see a frog.” She always leaves a finger space between the words.
  • Last she wrote the sentence, with spaces between each word and a period at the end of the sentence.

We’ve only grown caterpillars:) We’re using Apologia Swimming Creatures next year and they will grow Triops then.

Robin April 8, 2013 at 8:32 pm

Yes we have, the frog was nice enough to leave me some eggs in my dogs little pool one year. It went really well, I took pictures and we made a book from egg to frog. The kids loved it!

Dianne April 8, 2013 at 11:15 pm

I have grown several varieties of seeds.

Ellie April 9, 2013 at 1:22 pm

Not much of a green thumb here. We have some flower beds, but usually, we don’t start from seeds. Oh, and we once watched kept a caterpillar in a jar, and it turned into a lovely moth.

Lorie April 9, 2013 at 8:54 pm

We are growing some ladybugs right now!

Bridget Green April 9, 2013 at 9:12 pm

We’ve never grown anything. Sadly, we don’t quite have the space for something like frogs, but we may try for crystals this year. Thanks for the inspiration!

Jeannine April 10, 2013 at 5:56 am

Lady bugs! So fun! MacGyver recently informed me that he has ladybug larvae on his milkweed plant. Yes,he created his own square foot garden with butterfly plants. (No help from me.) That’s the way my kiddos roll. I’ll try to post his butterfly garden sometime. It’s really cute. But then again, I’m his Mommy.

Jeannine April 10, 2013 at 5:59 am

Bridget, we started with indoor seeds. The kiddos love watching their lima beans grow. We also put a bunch of beans in a baggie with a moist paper towel and taped them to the window. We opened up one seed each day to see what was going on inside. Very cool to see it changing.

Tara H April 10, 2013 at 10:42 am

We’ve had a garden. The boys have tried to keep tadpoles from the creek, but they never seem to last.

Exceptional post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?

I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
Thank you!
