The Books We Read:
A Perfect Day by Lane Smith (not pond-related, but I couldn't resist!)
Ribbit! by Rodrigo Folguiera
Pig in the Pond by Martin Waddell

Songs & Activities:
Little White Duck by Walt Whippo

We sang the story to the original tune by Bernard Zaritzky, with a little help from our puppet friends (above).

Mmm-AH! Went the Little Green Frog (pond version)
Mmm ah! went the little green frog one day
Mmm ah! went the little green frog
Mmm ah! went the little green frog one day
and they all went mmm mmm ah!!
But we know frogs go shanananana! shanananana! shanananana!
We know frogs go shanananana!, they don't go mmm mmm ah!

Bloop bloop! went the little blue fish one day
Bloop bloop! went the little blue fish
Bloop bloop! went the little blue fish one day
and they all went bloop bloop bloop!
But we know fish go kissy kissy kiss! kissy kissy kiss! kissy kissy kiss!
We know fish go kissy kissy kiss!, they don't go bloop bloop bloop!

Ssss-sss! went the little red snake one day
Ssss-sss! went the little red snake
Ssss-sss! went the little red snake one day
and they all went ssss ssss ssss!!
But we know snakes go jumpy jumpy jump, jumpy jumpy jump, jumpy jumpy jump
We know snakes go jumpy jumpy jump,they don't go ssss ssss ssss!

Craft—Lily Pads and Frogs:

 

The kids used watercolor paints to color their frogs and lily pads and scrunched up colorful tissue paper to make flowers.
