    Frog and Toad Are Friends

    No frog unit would be complete without mentioning this classic children's tale. It is an endearing, award-winning&nbsp;tale filled with friendship, humour, and adventure. Older readers could take turns reading aloud and discussing questions. For younger students (PreK-2 grade), this would be the prefect book for read aloud to the whole class to unwind at the end of the day.&nbsp;

    Classroom Creativity: Leap Into Math!

    This is a an&nbsp;activity I designed (though I'm sure it's been used before!) during pre-student teaching&nbsp;for my first grade frog unit for math. It was early in the year, and the students were learning how to solve the number line to solve addition and subtraction problems. To connect to our frog unit,&nbsp;I created a lily pad number line out of poster board and pre-cut numbers. Students had a blast coming up to use the number line to "jump forward" to add and to "jump back" to subtract!
