Ten Tiddly, Widdly Tadpoles

Story 20 April 2020


Bodhi Tree Story Time 🐸

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we will upload a new story with new lesson plan ideas to carry on developing your child’s learning while at home.

Lesson 12
Rhyme time
Singing and counting

For today’s game learn subtractions while singing.

Print the frog template once or twice depending by your child’s age and understanding of numbers. If you have enough toy frogs you can use them instead! Find a brown paper/scarf, this is going to be the log; and a blue paper/scarf for the water.

Sing together the speckled frogs song stopping to count the frogs every time one jumps in the water.

Use vocabulary such as “minus”, “take away” and for older children record on a math sheet how many is one less than.

Just in case you forgot the words…

10 green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log
Eating some most delicious bug… yum yum
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
And now there are?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 green and speckled frogs.

Enjoy the lovely weather and Monday morning and post a picture of your games with #bodhitreestorytime. At the end of the week we are giving away to a lucky family a voucher for £5 to redeem on one of our virtual home learning classes!
