The Frog Story
"As a teacher I found that every day I was faced with new and interesting challenges. But there were some things that were there everyday -- the problems of what to do with the children that I wasn't working with and the problem of motivating children and getting them to learn the information that they really needed to know. I wanted something that would do all of those things, and in addition to that, the children could do independently so that I didn't have to be right there with them. There was nothing like that and so I began creating the Frog Games for my own class."
–Mary Jo Hand, Former Teacher and Author of Frog Publications Materials

Makes Learning Easy and Fun!
Frog Classroom Learning Games are kid-friendly and right on target when it comes to skills. Students see the games as a reward, but they are using a very powerful teaching tool. Children feel a sense of accomplishment when playing Frog Classroom Learning Games because they can do them independently. They think they're just playing a game, but they're actually learning.
Solves Motivational Problems!
To motivate and encourage kids, there are no frustrating go-backs or lose-a-turns when playing Frog Classroom Learning Games. Only good things happen – an extra turn. . . a shortcut! And thanks to the simple Frog courtesy rules, practicing and learning with a partner is fun. For example, sometimes a student might give an incorrect answer. When that happens, the student says, "That's ok. You'll get it right the next time." The student who gave the incorrect answer takes the card back and studies it. Their playing partner can help them. It's a cooperative learning situation. Once the student understands the answer, the card goes back into the unused stack. It will come up again before the game is over, so students want to remember what they've learned. The student doesn't move ahead when a mistake is made, but is not discouraged by having to go back either.
Builds Test Confidence!
The 25 different games in each Frog Classroom Learning Games Set provide practice on the skills and topics aligned to tests for that level. The repetition develops the confidence necessary for positive learning attitudes and high achievement in class and on tests!
Even Students at Different Levels Can Play Together!
Every class has students at different levels with different needs. With the Frog games, they can play together. Just use two different sets of cards on the same gameboard. Each student uses a separate set of cards which matches his or her needs. There are even Frog games for children who can't read. So, any students can play together.
Self-Checking and Hands-On
ALL Frog Classroom Learning Games are self-checking and hands-on. The Frog Classroom Learning Games are extremely versatile. The cards can be used without gameboards as an independent, self-checking learning tool. Some students like to play solitaire for extra practice. And, to add an extra dimension to your teaching, a small-group study activity can be lots of fun.
Same, Simple Rules for ALL Frog Games!
Think of the last time you taught your students a game. How long did it take just to teach the rules? Think of the time you'll game by using Frog Classroom Learning Games. They all use the same, simple, courteous rules!
