Last week for Leap Day, my 5th graders and I made some origami Leaping Frogs. I don't remember when or why I learned how to make origami frogs - just that I've been doing it for forever. It was sort of my school version of a party trick. So, when the opportunity arose, I decided to put my useless talents to... well, use.
I thought they turned out pretty great. Though I have to say, I was a little surprised they all chose green paper. I figured we'd have some blue or red or pink frogs. But at least now, on one day every 4 years, they just might remember some unique English vocabulary!
