Jump Frog Jump Gross Motor with Printable

Jump Frog Jump Gross Motor

We love the book Jump, Frog, Jump! The girls have loved it since Rose had it first read to her in preschool. Since then we have gone through 2 board books and at least 3 paper backs of the book. This activity also goes great with the Pond Pack.

What you need: Pencil or something to write with, Jump, Frog, Jump!, tally sheet and die.

First we read through the book and do the gross motor activity every time they say the animal. It can be fun and challenging. It is a good way to teach the movements to the kids. You can see the list of movements below.

Then the fun begins. We start with youngest first at our house. Some times we switch the rule around.

I hope that these simple gross motor activities can help bring the book alive for you!

    This is great! My first graders always enjoyed moving around to a reading of Jump, Frog, Jump!, but I never thought about adding the tallying to it.
