the frog song

As part of our seminar this morning, we had a Japanese teacher come to give us a Japanese lesson (the point being to experience learning a new language for the first time from the point of view of the student, despite the fact that three of us in the class already know Japanese...) But, she was a really inspiring teacher, and she has really motivated me. I was so impressed to by how quickly my classmates picked up the Japanese, and by her teaching methodologies. We sang lots of songs, including the frog song, which is really cute:

蛙の歌が
聞こえてくるよ
グワグワグワグワ
ゲロゲロゲロゲロ
グワグワグワ

It brought back many memories of Sunday lunch and singing around the table!

She used a lot of those plastic fans that are always being given away on the streets advertising random things. Where can I get some from? They would be perfect as an alternative to flashcards...
