leap year; leap day
I celebrate a birthday this year: I turn....11! So, I made a fun pack to help your students celebrate the rarity (and awesomeness) of the leap year! You won't have another chance for another 4 years, so take advantage of it! :)
**Foldable Mini-book about Leap Year
**Differentiated Leap Day posters (3 versions)
**2 'Hoppy' Leap Day foldable cards
**2 Dab-the-Frog printables (find ways to make 4 or 29)
**Build-a-Froggy: Students cut and paste to dress the frog, then write about it (differentiated)
**Build-a-Frog-Life-Cycle: Students cut and paste to sequence the life cycle, then write about it (differentiated)
**Writing Prompt: If I could leap to a different time period...
**Persuasive Writing: Which day should Leap Year Babies celebrate on non-leap years? (I always get asked if I celebrate on February 29th or March 1st!)
**Anagram: Build words using the letters in 'Leap Day'
**NEW***I've just updated this pack to include the following:
- Suggestions to teach about the Earth's orbit around the Sun
- Headbands, piggy bank, and "coins" for role-playing
- Full-screen color book to display on your whiteboard or print
- B&W student mini-versions to reread and color
Grab today before the price goes up to reflect these additions!
