"The List" is one story in the book,
Use to introduce classroom schedule. Frog has a list of things to do. He crosses things off as he completes them.

Can also use to explain classroom jobs and to vote on different jobs (gong sounder, teacher helper, matt picker upper, matt layer, line leader, caboose, schedule helper, etc.) Use names on circle matts to vote with voting strip. Count votes, compare bigger/smaller.
Differentiate between youngers/olders by simplifying the youngers into the schedule only for a shorter lesson, perhaps using upon return from Veteran's Day holiday or as a lower demands lesson (no table work). Risers will be able to participate in decision making around classroom responsibilities and understand concepts of voting/majority wins.
Older children understand humor (Frog loses his list and can't do anything, he writes 'wake up' and 'have breakfast' on his list)
youngers appreciate the story but may not understand nuance. Also, talk about flexibility- if something happens that isn't on our list, we may have to adapt to a change in our environment- example: the car breaks, moms/dads didn't have that on their list, but they have to change their plan and fix the problem). Practice turning over parts of classroom schedule to indicate that activity is finished.
I own this title.

Frog and toad are best friends and they share five stories of them together. This is my favorite because this story is very funny, fascinating, and beautiful. - Jennifer, age 14

My son hated reading, and this book just grabbed his attention. Before we knew it he was reading the full chapters without realizing it and without struggling to get him to read.

Frog and Toad stories are a top family favorite at our house. My son asked for me to check it out several years ago and it had me laughing so hard when I read it aloud to him. My husband just happened to come home at that moment and ask what I was reading and when we told him he said "That was my favorite book when I was a boy!". I highly recommend these stories to any family who wants good clean humor to enjoy together.

A nice little book for 'level 2' readers.
nothing scarey in this book (we can't read anything even slightly scarey or there WILL be bad dreams...)
So this series was a wonderful find.
