What child doesn’t love a fun nursery rhyme? These lovely tunes talk about many different themes and have lots of varied rhythms, and they have been around for centuries! Now that we’re living in a more connected world, parents have plentiful nursery rhyme songs to choose from for their little ones, like this charming frog song called “Five Green and Speckled Frogs”. 

Children’s songs are suited for kids of all ages, and there are lots of good reasons why. They’re a great aid for babies that still aren’t able to read; besides having mom or dad read a book for them, is a good option to introduce them to songs for kids and videos for kids to complement their learning process. These songs help with language development and are a great source of new vocabulary for the younger ones. In addition, singing can improve fine motor skills and overall coordination, since many of these rhymes come with certain movements to perform during the song. 

In this song, children enjoy the story of five little speckled frogs that are happily sitting on a log and eating some delicious bugs. As the song progresses, the frogs start to jump, one by one, to the pool to take a nice bath in the cool water. As each one of the 5 little speckled frogs jumps, we keep on counting the remaining frogs on the log: four, three, two, one, and then none! Apart from learning about these cute five speckled frogs, children can learn the numbers from one to five, and basic math as well, as they keep subtracting the number of frogs that jump into the pool from the ones that are still sitting on the log. 

The speckled frog song is certainly an awesome way for the little ones to start getting acquainted with math concepts in a fun and enjoyable way. Also, this frog nursery rhyme has great storytelling that could open the door to a love of books and to establish healthy reading habits, more so since listening to rhymes boosts kids’ abilities to read, it makes easier for them to recognize the different words’ sounds and their pronunciation. 

Now, let’s sit with our little ones and enjoy this great kids frog song as we sing along the five little speckled frogs lyrics!

“Five Green and Speckled Frogs” Lyrics

Five green and speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there were four green speckled frogs.

Four green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there were three green speckled frogs.

Three green and speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there were two green speckled frogs.

Two green and speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there was one green speckled frog.

One green and speckled frog,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum!
He jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool.
Then there were no green speckled frogs!
