Target and a Leap Year Freebie!

I love Target. Don't we all?  Check out what I got today!

*I got 50 pencils! Easter Pencils, Sports Pencils for the Boys and Polka Dot Pencils for the girls. 
*2 cute boxes
*4 Nonfiction Books
*2 Animal Pointers 
* St. Patty's Headband and pin to wear the day of
*Watering Can for our egg carton gardens in the spring
*2 Dr. Seuss Books on Sale for $10 each

Now, on the Leap Year Freebie!  I wanted to do something for Leap Year since it only comes every four years.  I love craftivities and I couldn't find one out there, so I made one.  

 I didn't have construction paper at home, but I knew you guys would get the general idea from the all white boring picture.  I wanted to go ahead and get it out there in case you guys wanted to use it this week.
The Freebie has a simple graphic organizer (nothing fancy) and a few writing prompt ideas.

If you can't use the frog for leap day, I think he is adorable and you could always use him for springtime! :)

It's at my TPT Store and TN Store!

Also, BrainPop has a pretty cool video for the older kids to explain why we need a leap day and leap year.  It fits in perfect with third grade curriculum  since we learn about the movement of the Earth and such.  So we will be writing about why we need a leap year.  BrainPop is a paid site but you can sign up for a week free trial.

Well, I am so tired. Mondays.

Have a great day tomorrow. :)

  1. What a cute idea! I hadn't planned on going into too much detail with it since we are doing Seuss all week, but I might have to sneak this into my plans anyways! Thanks so much!
