We started out by completing the "Before You Read" pages which focus on what it means to be a friend as Frog and Toad Together is all about friendship. We then moved into the book. Three days out of the week, our afternoon reading time was enriched by this study. We completed one chapter per week. On the first day of each week, the girls took turns reading the entire chapter and then we answered the questions about the story. On the second day we reread the chapter with the girls reading the opposite pages of what they read the first day. We then did the questions that pertained to the Biblical aspects of the guide. Bible verses are included in the pages, along with questions to make the children think about what is going on in the story from a Christian perspective. On the third day we finished up any questions we didn't get completed and then chose one of the listed projects to do.
Reading the book:
(They each had their own copy which we borrowed from the library.)
At first I had them writing the answers themselves. I would either spell words they didn't know or write their entire answer out on a piece of paper and have them copy it. I finally decided this was a bit much for them, so I just had them dictate their answer to me and I wrote it directly on their paper.
Projects we completed:
Their lists of daily activities to go with "The List."
Planting a Phonics Garden to go with "The Garden."
Baking cookies to go with "Cookies."
Drawing some of the make-believe creatures they listed in their guide to go with "Dragons and Giants."
Sharing one of their dreams to go with "The Dream."
