Five Speckled Frogs Worksheet

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 3 pages | Years: P - 1

A place value worksheet to use in the classroom with younger students when learning number stories and rhymes.

Use this teaching resource in the classroom when identifying number patterns.

Whilst completing the worksheet, encourage students to sing Five Speckled Frogs.

To use this resource:

  • Print and provide students with a copy of each worksheet. (An ’empty log’ worksheet and a ‘log with frogs from 1 t0 5’ worksheet).
  • On the ‘log with frogs’ worksheet, ask the students to fold along the ‘fold’ line, then cut along the dotted lines.
  • Students then glue the bottom of the ‘log with frogs’ worksheet to the bottom of the ’empty log’ worksheet, so that it is sitting on top and completely covering up the worksheet underneath.
  • As they sing Five Speckled Frogs, ask the students to fold down the frogs from 5 to 0, showing that there are no frogs left on the log at the end of the song.
  • Alternatively, provide students with the mixed up five speckled frog cards to glue into the correct order onto the ’empty log’ worksheet.

    I used this resource while on relief with Prep/1. I combined it with story involving a frog which I read to the students before setting this task. The students loved it, and they were fully engaged with the task. Thanks Teachstarter!!!
