Evaluation

EVALUATION: Making a wide-mouthed frog

 

- Students will get out their scissors, glue, paper bag, printed frog (head and body) and crayons.

- Students will first color their frogs, and then they will cut them out.

- Next, everyone will assemble their frogs onto their paper bags (the paper bag should be upside down). 

- After all of the students are done, we all will say “I’m a wide-mouthed frog and I eat flies” using our frogs we have just created, which is a wide mouthed frog.  

Conclusion

AFTER THE READING AND AT THE CONCLUSION OF OUR ACTIVITY:

 

- After reading the story, TTW will tell the students how great of a job they have done by pretending to be frogs. 

TTW ask a series of questions in order for the students to retell the story in their own words: 

- Can anyone tell me who the frog saw first?

- Can anyone tell me who the frog saw second?

- Can anyone tell me who the frog was afraid of?

- Does anyone remember what the blue feathered bird liked to eat?

- Does anyone remember what the furry brown mouse liked to eat?
