Grandfather Frog


Grandfather Frog
Louise Seaman Bechtal

Fat green frog sits by the pond,
Big frog, bull frog, grandfather frog.
Croak, croak, croak
Shuts his eye, opens his eye,
Rolls his eye, winks his eye,
Waiting for
A little fat fly.
Croak, croak, croak
I go walking down by the pond,
I want to see the big green frog.
I want to stare right into his eye.
Rolling, winking, funny old eye.
But oh! he hears me coming by.
Croak, croak,
SPLASH!

Why a poem about frogs?
We have tadpoles in the class! They are quite small -- and are actually toad tadpoles -- not frog tadpoles. Many of them already have back legs. Some have back legs and front legs but they still have their tails. We have a platform in the aquarium. just in case they are ready to climb out. Ask you child about our tadpoles. Ask them what the tadpoles eat. What will they eat when they change into toads (or frogs)? We are studying The Needs of Living things (Grade1) and Animal Life Cycles (Grade 2)
