These last two weeks, the kindergarteners listened to a story called The Frog Went A Travelin. This story is Russian folktale about a frog who wants a different life and decides to travel south with a flock of ducks. The frog’s pride gets the best of her when villagers notice that the frog is traveling with ducks. She wants to fly lower for them to see and ends up shouting that she is the one who thought of the idea, and ends up falling and landing in a pond.
The kindergarteners practiced reading the underlined parts of the story aloud with me. They are improving in reading on their own and knowing when to read their part. They also completed art and writing acitivities.
