A Prince, a Frog and a Magic Kiss

One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading The Princess and the Frog
We ..
  • made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about.
  • went on a picture walk through the book.  We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.
  • cololored the cover of our folder. 
  • learned that P is for Prince, F is for frog. Kids cut and pasted pictures from magazines and sorted them. F /P
  • discussed about real and fictional frogs
  • created an outfit for the prince
  • graphed our character in the story
  • read different versions of the story
  • talked about the 3 stages  of a frog's life cycle in order.
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • used the necklace to recall the events of the story.
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • made floatables frogs using corks and green markers
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events
  • finished the sentence The frog/prince is....
  • learned a poem
I'm A Little Frog
I'm a little frog
Just a pollywog
I live in the brook
Underneath the bog
And because it's Spring
Spring, Spring, Spring
I'm so happy that I want to
Sing, sing, sing.
  • sang a song
The Frog Lives in the Pond 
Tune: "The Farmer in the Dell"
The frog lives in the pond
Her tongue is oh, so long.
It reaches high to catch a fly.
The frog lives in the pond.

  • played a game Leap Frog: children form a line with a body space between them. They crouch down as small as they can. The person at the back of the line is the frog and leaps up the line gently tapping on the backs of the other children as they go ‘leap frog’. When at the front, they crouch down and the new last person is the frog.
