T.S.: Hey, Wollie. What are you doing?
T.S.: You don’t say.
T.S.: People like to jump, too. So tell me, why do frogs jump?
Wollie: Well, I like to jump because it’s really, really, fun, but frogs mainly jump because it’s a way to protect ourselves from predators that want to eat us. We don’t have big, sharp teeth or claws, so we jump far and high to get away or hide. We also jump to catch our food such as insects.
T.S.: But, I thought pizza was your favorite food?
T.S.: We jump to have fun and excercise. Jumping has great benefits to our health. It helps strengthen the muscles in our legs and our lungs. It also helps to burn calories in a fun way. We can jump on a trampoline, on our beds, with a rope, and even on a pogo stick.
Wollie: Wow! That’s awesome, you can jump everywhere and use many things to jump! We can only use our strong hind legs to jump high, but not every frog has long hind legs to jump. It depends on the type of frog.
T.S.: How high can you jump, Wollie?
Wollie: I can jump pretty high, but some frogs can jump over 7 feet in length and as high as 10 feet . It really depends on the type of frog. My dad told me that the longest jump a frog has been recorded to make was a little over 22 feet!! I can’t jump that far, yet.
T.S. : Wow! Now, that’s pretty impressive. I don’t know many people who could jump that high or that far even with a pogo stick or trampoline. Frogs are just naturally great jumpers and swimmers due to their powerful hind legs and nothing else.
Jump when you see the picture of Wollie the Goodee Frog
Jump when you see the colors red and yellow
Jump when you see a jumping man
If you haven’t already done so, get up and jump, jump, jump. It’s fun to do and it’s good excersie, too. Your body will thank you for it! See how high you can jump!
T.S. : Hey guys! Yesterday we celebrated Memorial Day? Why do we celebrate Memorial Day?
T.S.: That’s close, Alex.
T.S.: Not exactly, PePe.
T.S.: Yes, Stuie, that’s usually what happens on Memorial Day, but it is not the reason why we celebrate the holiday.
T.S.: Thank you, Wollie. Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that takes place every year on the final Monday of May. It is a day to remember the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Memorial Day also marks the start of the summer vacation. On this day many people visit cemetaries and memorials to give respect to those who lost their lives in military service. American flags are usually placed on the graves of these men and women that have died serving our country. As a matter of fact, below are drawings of the American flag in observance of Memorial Day by some of our friends!

We hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day Weekend!
