TONS of FROGGY FUN!

For the past several years I feel like I finally got my Back to School routine down pat.  I found ways to introduce rules/routines/centers, and all that good stuff that works for me and is successful for my kiddos.  I love my Back to School units and I love pretty much what I've got going on for the first few weeks, but there is a tiny part of me that ALWAYS wants to try something different.  Even though, what I do works!  So, this year I decided I'm going to keep everything I have, use it all, and do pretty much what I've always done (because it does work), but throw in some FUN, NEW things as well.  My new Back to School with Froggy is what I came up with...I must say I'm in love!  It worked so perfect for me and my kids the first 2 weeks.  The activities I came up with were simple enough for all of my students to feel successful and it was just the touch I needed not to be bored with the same ol' same ol'.  :)  I used this the first 2 weeks of school, but I think it would be fun and a great review at any time!
Wanna see it in action?  Here we go...

We made these the first week of school and they turned out SO cute!
I used lime green crepe paper for the arms and legs which I think makes it pop...and scrapbook paper for Froggy's shorts!






I put this in my reading center the second week of school after we had played it whole group.  They were excited to see it again and they knew exactly how to play it.  
 Here's our build a fly.  This also has a labeling activity included in the pack.
Here's the sequencing activity we did after reading the book.

There's many, many more activities that I didn't include in this post.  If you are interested in doing these things with your students you can find it HERE!
Happy Labor Day Weekend!!

I'll give this unit away to one lucky person who comments below!!
