Saturday Song - Green and Speckled Frogs

A Raffi favorite from my own childhood ...
As always, the audio is available in the side bar under "Songs to sing with children."

Start with any number and count down. In the audio file I begin with 5, but feel free to start at 50 if you have a long car ride ahead of you!

Five green and speckled frogs
sat on a speckled log,
eating some most delicious bugs (yum yum!)
One jumped into the pool,
where it was nice and cool.
Then there were four green, speckled frogs.

For hand motions:
"x green and speckled frogs"
Hold up the number of frogs with your fingers and move your hand from side to side.
"sat on a speckled log"
Touch your forearm (the log) with the fingertips of the other hand.
"Eating some most delicious bugs"
Pretend like you're eating.
"One jumped into the pool"
From forearm, the other hand "jumps" off toward the floor.
"Then there were x green speckled frogs."
Hold up hand again with new number of frogs.
