Find the Lily Pad Frog Word Game
I LOVE Heidi Butkus and her wonderfully fun ideas to work with small groups and get them into the word development! Her newest blog has a game with a snowman where you say the word while you search for the snowman's hat.
I adapted the game to go with frogs (what else?) and added 8 lily pads. My plan is to put the cards out in a pocket chart or table pocket chart and hide the 8 lily pads behind the different words. As the kids read the words, they can check behind the frogs to see if there's a hidden lily pad. The winner will be the person that has the most lily pads at the end of the game.
Here's the rhyme we might say to start the game:
"Swamp Frog, Swamp Frog. Don't be mad. I'll help you find your lily pad!"
I used the words for Reading Street's Unit 3 Story 3 "Jan's New Home" from the Scott Foresman story.
