Frogs always hold my kids’ interest. I don’t know if it’s the fact that they hop (being a frog sounds like fun!) or their intriguing life cycle, but everyone here is always excited about all things frog. With this free Frog Word Work Activity, kids can pretend the frogs are hopping up onto the log to spell out words. It’s a fun and simple way for kids to practice spelling, reading, and writing!
*Pair with our Easy Readers MEGA Bundle!
Frog Word Work Activity
In this super fun activity, I’ve included letters to make seven of the words in our free Frog Easy Reader. There’s also a page of the entire alphabet for building any other words you’d like to use.
Building words letter by letter can help kids pay attention to the sounds that make up sight words. Writing the words can also reinforce learning, as well as add student accountability, so I’ve included a recording sheet for you.
Frog Word Work Activity
The idea here is helping the frogs jump up onto a log to spell out words. Each frog has a letter on its belly. Kids search in the “pond” to find the letters they need. As the child finds each letter, he has that frog jump up onto the log.
There are two different logs. You can use them separately, or connect them together for longer words such as “tadpole” and “froglet.”
4 Frog Fun Ways to Play
This activity is easy to differentiate for all learners. Here are 4 ideas on how to play:
- Laminate the logs, and write words in dry erase pen to help children with letter matching.
- Provide a separate list of words for students to build.
- Print out several copies of the full alphabet page, and let the children build their own words.
- Use as a letter recognition activity where the kids name letters as they “hop” up onto the log.
Be sure to allow a little extra time for play too! Those frogs will get tired of word building before they’re done hopping in and out of the pond. Let the kids have some fun, and soon they’ll be ready for even more literacy activities.
