We chose to share about the book It’s Mine by Leo Lionni. With a 6 and 2 year old at home and lots of playdates in our future this summer I thought it might be a great way to really talk about sharing with and considering others.
Activities for It’s Mine
Reinact the Story together
We used our little exercise equipment in the backyard to reinact the story, any object you had step on work, even a towel on the flower or a small circle.
Make a Frog Headband
It’s fun to dress in character while you’re reinacting a story. We created these adorable frog headband by My Little 3 and Me
Frog Measurement/ Frog Cycles/Frog Painting
Megan from Coffee Cups and Crayons has tons of fun activities about frogs that inspired us all week long!
Using Plastic frogs we practiced counting them with my youngest and then my oldest practiced her fact families
We practiced sharing things and saying please and thank you. Of course we talked in our froggy voices to make the game a little bit more fun!
Five Green and Speckled Frogs & The Little Green Frog are always fun to sing. A Frog Went a Dancing is a cute one from Kindermusik too! Here’s a fun Craft from Rainy Day Mum to go along with Five Green and Speckled Frogs. She has many more posts about frogs too!
We took a look around our yard to search for frogs! Since we live in Florida there are quite a few options for us to find, even Toads! If you don’t have any real ones around you could always use the toys ones, they Dollar Tree usually has them.
Keep a Journal of the changes your observe while watching the tadpole or frogs
Science Fun with Frogs
We were fortunate to have had rain around the same time so we ventured out to the nearby pond and collected some frog eggs and watched the grow together.
We’ll be sharing more about Frogs next Virtual Book Club when we feature Gail Gibbons!
