It just hit me as I was starting the post, this is my first "Leap Year" since I began blogging! And, I think I dropped the ball a little on taking pictures of our "Leap Day" activities. It is after all, almost impossible to hold a camera and teach pre-school at the same time. Most of my pictures are taken while the children are doing their artwork (if my hands are clean!). So please bear with me.
Leap year is very difficult to explain to a group of 3 and 4 year olds. I found this amazing site Leap Day for Kids and it went over very well. BUT, to be honest, we mostly talked about frogs! Yes, frogs leap and they are a lot more fun than talking about the number of days in a year! So for the most part we leaped around the room, made frog noises and talked about what frogs ate (gross stuff because they eat flies!).
Our art project was fun. We made frog hats!
