5 little speckled pegs


Continuing with the theme of counting games, I thought we would extend the singing beyond fish to frogs so introduced Toby to the speckled frogs song.  I then made a very simple small world scene of a pond with a log and five frogs stuck to pegs as I thought that not only could we practice counting but he would also be getting some fine motor skills practice.  I say ‘I made’, but actually, the artistic credit belongs to meanderingdaddy! In the end, this was the element that Toby enjoyed as squeezing the pegs was a new thing and something that was a challenge, but that he could manage with encouragement. It’s something we can come back to as it will really help with the concept of subtraction…but a bit later I think!!
