I just love these Five Green Frogs printables from picklebums!
I put together a small envelope for each child with the frogs inside.
As they removed their frogs from their envelopes, they counted out 5 craft sticks and placed them on the backs. They then secured each stick with some masking tape. This was such a great activity using 1:1 correspondence!
When the sticks were attached, they were put back into their envelopes until circle time.
All the frogs came out at circle time. While we sang the finger play, one frog went into each envelope until all of them were gone.
I love using props with finger plays and songs!
