Craft Stick Frog

Stick frog 3Looking for something cute to make, that’s challenging enough for upper grade students? Try this craft stick frog! Since you can position the arms and legs in any shape, each one will look different!

Stick frog 4

You’ll need the fat ones (for the body, arms and legs) and the regular skinny ones (cut up for toes and mouth). Make sure you don’t forget the googly eyes! Add a strong magnet to the back and a clothes pin to the body to make it a paper holder for a fridge or a metal filing cabinet.
Stick frog 1 Stick frog 2I recommend building the frog on some wax paper so the frog doesn’t accidentally get glued to the table! Q-tips can help you dab the glue on too. When the frog is dry, paint it green. All done!

Colorful Balloons stickerColors. I love them! Yup, I love them.

But they’re not just for fun. Most basic color words are kindergarten sight words (check out my free printable list) and being able to recognize color words is important for kids to be able to complete higher level tasks. Here’s my fun, but simple color word recognition:
