Click here to listen as I read my picture book,
As you listen to the story, can you find the rhyming words at the end of the lines (external rhyme)? What about rhyming words in the middle of any lines? (internal rhyme)
Look for words that show any sounds that you might hear in the story, like Woof! (onomatoepoeia).
Or words that repeat the same beginning sounds, like hippy-hoppy! (alliteration).
Then check the Hippy-Hoppy Toad page here on my website for activities to go along with the story. They include:
a Coloring page
a Line Maze--where will the hippy-hoppy toad land?
a Matching activity--match the picture on the left to the picture that rhymes with it on the right
Connect the dots to discover how the toad tries to make himself look bigger when he meets the dog
More crafts, songs and activities for A Hippy-Hoppy Toad can be found on the Indiana Early Literacy Firefly Guide.
Check out the NEW lesson plan for teachers and parents who are teaching at home on the Hippy-Hoppy Toad page here on my website.
