Suggested "choreography" for "Frogs!" posted at totshabbat.com. (Thanks,
Robin, for posting Passover music when you really needed to be packing for
an out-of-town trip!)
(1) With slightly older kids, divide them into 3 groups: clappers,
ribbiters and jumpers. They sing their own lyrics -- "clap, clap" while
clapping twice, or "ribbit," or "jump" while jumping -- at both the
beginning and end of the song.
(2) With younger kids, especially preschoolers, they sing and do it all as
a single group because none of them wants to miss the chance to jump. Teach
them the rhythm of the actions -- clap, clap, rest, jump -- and trying
continuing those motions through the entire song. It makes it fun for the
kids as well as any one who happens to be watching (albeit it somewhat
exhausting for the songleader/music teacher) as the room seems to be taken
over by singing frogs.
I wondered aloud whether to include this one at tot and elementary-school
model seders because the kids will want to get up out of their seats to do
the actions. Teachers, however, told me that's perfect -- the kids need a
chance to jump around in the middle of the seder.

I've updated the totshabbat.com website with a long list of Passover
favorites, old and new, including both audio tracks and free sheet music.
Students can use the site to learn or practice chanting The Four
Questions; several recordings are posted along with Hebrew text,
transliteration, and translation.
Also be sure to check out the new song "Frogs!" by Carol Boyd Leon:
sheet music: http://www.totshabbat.com/cbleon-frogs.pdf
midi file: http://www.totshabbat.com/cbleon-frogs-midi.mid
Look for Carol's upcoming songbook and double CD set, "Gan Shirim," to be
published in late spring or early summer.
HN alum Julie Lipson also sent lyrics for her new song, "We are all on
the seder plate,"
I'll post the melody also if I can get it from Julie.
Free sheet music is posted for "Chad Gad Yah," "Dayenu," "The Four
Questions," and "Go Down Moses."
Many thanks to all the wonderful artists who generously donated their
work to all of us!!!
