Are you as surprised as I am that February is almost gone? Personally, I’m thrilled. February is the month of the year I like the least. It’s dark, depressing and eons away from summer.
Not this year, though. Thanks to the weather gods, we pulled off the first February in 40+ years I can say I actually enjoyed. Last weekend it was 72F. No, really. See what I mean?!
For this freebie, I think it’s important that kids get a basic knowledge of the leap day and leap year, even if they’re not in ESL like my students. This lesson is somewhat in homage to my great-grandfather, who was a leapling (watch the video to understand why!) and always said he only got older every 4 years. It must have worked because he lived into his 90s!
Whereever you are, enjoy today. It brings us one day closer to summer 🙂
