Livy Leap Frog – The ReyBird Express #10
Pathway Learning: When singing “Livy Leap Frog”, children are transformed into the world of a frog. Through their imagination, they are transported down South to bayou country where swamps are filled with lily pads that look like shapes.
It is a song about a lively leapfrog that teaches children in PreK – 1st Grade the 4 basic shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle). The lesson plan also teaches and reinforces symmetry, creative movement, following directions, and dramatic play.
