Description

“Funny Frogs” are a quick, easy and super-fun “print and go” frog craft with games, which review 2D shapes. Completed frogs turn out adorable and make a wonderful spring bulletin board too.

Teacher Comments:

  • "My students had so much fun creating these! I loved being able to check for understanding by reading their descriptors."
  • "Great product!"
  • "Made the cutest bulletin board display."

The packet includes playing cards with frog and lily pad graphics, which are shaped in the various 2D shapes: circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, rhombus, trapezoid, heart, star & crescent.

I’ve also included cards with speckled lime green shapes, plus matching word cards, as well as shape cards with a fly on them.

Use the cards for one-to-one correspondence with little ones, or Memory Match & “I Have; Who Has?” games with older students.

As a math center activity, students can also use the cards to “feed” the appropriate-shaped frog head, by finding all of the matching cards, then placing them inside the frog's open "mouth".

I’ve included a short “giggle” tale about Ferdinand the frog, and Princess Penelope who was turned into a fly!

Read it as an interesting way to introduce the shape craft, then have older students "flip up the mouth" and write their own "fractured fairy tale" on the frog's "tongue".

There’s a set of discussion questions for the story, as well as a comprehension worksheet.

There are also 2D "tongue" patterns which feature a fly and the name of the 2D shape.

Older students can also write their shape’s attributes here.

For further reinforcement, I’ve included a few worksheets, plus a certificate of praise bookmark.

After sharing their frog, scatter completed projects on a blue (pond) background bulletin board.

You could also make some brown cattails to use for your border. I’ve included 2 posters for the center of your display.

Since these silly shaped frogs have a big mouth, a cute story to read after making this craftivity is “The Wide Mouth Frog” by Keith Faulkner. It’s one of my kiddos’ favorites.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you enjoy these frog activities as much as I did creating them.
