Five Green and Speckled Frogs is a spring-time favorite! Use this versatile counting song for various activities, including counting, subtraction, drum technique, and simple rhythm practice.
In this resource, we have included two versions of the five-slide presentation. The first is lyrics only with bolded words for counting/subtracting. The second includes a simple rhythmic notation for the counting words. Additionally, we have suggested this resource for use playing high and low tones on drums. Our explanation for that particular activity is also included. We hope that this will be a valuable resource for classroom and elementary general music teachers alike!
