Poem Frogs at School-
Thirty frogs went to school
Down beside a reedy pool
Such a sight to be seen
Thirty little coats of green
Mister Bullfrog looking stern
Taught,the classes in their turn
Taught them how to nobly strive
How to leap and how to dive
From his seat beside a reed
Taught them something else they'd need
How to swiftly dodge a blow
From the rubbish people throw.
Thirty frogs grew up fast
Bullfrogs they became at last
Spent the summer keeping cool
Swimming in their reedy pool.Story A Ponds Life

hopping on some lily pads.
There was a family of little brown DUCKS swimming quietly by looking for
food. The little FISH hid under leaves when they saw the DUCKS swim, by.
They did not want to be lunch.
The DRAGONFLIES flittered over the water of the pond. They kept out of
the way of the FROGS who might eat then for lunch. Sometimes 1 thought
the TADPOLES were FISH but when 1 looked closely 1 could see the
The WATER SNAILS floated on top of the water sometimes instead of eating
the plants. They looked like they were having fun as they did the DRAGON
FLIES that buzzed in the sun.
It was so interesting seeing all the little creatures that lived in or around the
pond - the FISH and TADPOLES swimming, the DRAGONFLIES flying
over the water while the DUCKS and FROGS sat around the banks or
splashed in the water and looked for the WATER SNAILS.
As the sun sets all the little creatures settled down for the night and went to
