A Cute Frog Pond board game to practice the alphabet, numbers and words.




Help the frogs across the pond to reach their friends with this Big A3 board game. Help your child practice their alphabet, numbers, words and more.

Board Games are an excellent way to learn.  Children learn valuable skills like hand-eye coordination to social skills, brain-strengthening strategy to math and language learning as well as turn taking and being a good sport, they gain knowledge of basic concepts as they practise good listening, following directions and responding appropriately. Children also get to work on their fine motor skills as they manipulate and move the game board pieces.  The best part about board games – They are downright fun!

This activity includes:
  • 1x A3 Game board
  • 1x Die
  • 4x Frog Game pieces
  • Directions for play

The File is a Compressed Zip File, like winzip and winrar.

A good idea is to laminate the board game so you can use it over again. Print the game in A3 for better game play. Use the Frog game pieces to move across the board. With a white board marker, write the words, letters or numbers onto the lily pads. The Player rolls the die, and moves forward, which ever lily pad the player lands on, the player must then read what is written. Use a mix of words, numbers, and colours to make it interesting.

How to use:

Use the Item sheet as a guide, feel free to think of your own things to measure. Let your kids measure with the monsters then write the answer down, e.g: Pencil = 4 small monsters long. Use the same size monster to measure one item.

Tip: Tell your kids: Use small monsters to measure small things and use big monsters to measure big things. If your child is measuring a large item and they run out of monsters, show your kids how to put one monster from the back in front of the monster in the front, but still keep track of the number of monsters they used.

After your kids have mastered measuring with monsters, teach them how to use their hands to measure things. Then teach them how to use their feet and big steps to measure things.
