This week in preschool our teachers are using the book, Froggy Gets Dressed by Jonathan London. I love this book but I didn’t have any materials prepped for it so I got busy making a few differentiated materials for my caseload. Here’s a peek at what we’re doing. Froggy Gets Dressed is a great book for preschool aged students during winter. It is a cumulative story, based around a central theme of getting dressed. Each time Froggy goes outside to play in the snow, he has forgotten an article of clothing. So, he has to come back inside and take everything off in order to put on what he was missing.
I made one set of file folder activities. You can find it in my tpt shop: Froggy Gets Dressed: File Folder Language Activities.
The file folder games include: Dress Froggy, Following Directions, Picture Matching, and an open-ended board game. I use this set with early learners and children with significant cognitive and language disabilities. Skills targeted include: expanding utterances, vocabulary, picture matching, following directions, and positional concepts. Use the open-ended board game to target any other skills by pairing it with flashcards or apps.
I’m using the file folder activities for my most severely impaired students. I can leave those file folder activities in the classroom for the rest of the month as practice too!
The second packet I made is for the rest of my caseload. Froggy Gets Dressed: Dot and Go packet. This packet is 12 pages in length for preschool speech and language intervention. The packet is made to be used with paint daubers. Paint daubers are also called do-a-dots, paint markers, dot markers or bingo markers. They are available for purchase as Wal-Mart or on Amazon.
This packet is designed for SLPs to use in companion with the book ‘Froggy Gets Dressed’ by Jonathan London. The book is not included.
This packet is all in black and white for easy print-and-go therapy. There is no prep required.
Simply run copies of the pages you wish to use with your students. Every page is made to use with dot markers.
We paired our book and companion pieces with these Stretchable Flying Frogs. I got them on Oriental Trader. Let me tell you – those things fly far! You’re going to want to try those out in the hallway.
We also used the Hopping Frogs set from the Super Duper pub. All in all we have a ‘hopping’ good time!
Are you a fan of the Froggy books? I’d love to hear your recommendation about other favorites!
