I know I have been MIA lately! I have been doing a lot of behind the sense work. I share more about that later, but for now let's talk Leap Day. February 29th only comes once every four years, and it's almost here! Leap year is usually not on a teacher 's radar, but really it can be a lot of fun.
When my son was four, we made a time capsule for him. Since he was four, I had him write his name and he dictated the answers to a time capsule questionnaire to me. I also inserted pictures of things he was into and who knows what else. I put everything in a manila envelope, sealed it and it's been sitting ever since. Four years later, he has not forgotten about it. He is so excited to open it next week. I am too, because honestly I don't remember all of the things I had put in there.
Do you do anything for leap year? I have many other great ideas, but we are in the middle of our National Symbols unit, and it doesn't fit with our theme. So a quick time capsule activity with have to be it for us.
