### Retiring ~FROGS HOPPING INTO MATH UNIT ~ GET IT FREE!

ALMOST RETIRED ~~

## FROGS ~HOPPING INTO MATH UNIT ~ GET IT FREE !

Hi There!

I am so happy I finally have blog - style that makes me happy! It has been a LONG haul of restyling and playing with designs!
It has been like my birthday over here and my blog is my present.  I do have a birthday ( I won't tell how many candles but it's a milestone!)  coming up soon.  My whole family celebrates milestone birthdays in the next weeks.. my daughter... husband... and our sweet little doggie Sophie and kitten Tucker.  Sophie, Tucker and I all share a birhday. How weird is that???

So let's celebrate!

### IT'S ABSOLUTELY FREE!

Just CLICK ON THE PIC to get to the store for your free unit before it retires at TPT!
Read on to see how I use the activities in my classroom.........................

Here's what is going on this week in my classroom.  It is Math - Hop Day!  I like to have a special froggie math day in between units.  My kids just love doing art projects and it is so sweet when we can combine a project and some math facts together.

Here's our crazy frog friend that we will make.  We put the sums on his hands and then the addition facts are on his accordian folded arms and legs.  We give him some googly eyes made of cotton balls that are just looking for some flies to munch on (bluch)  and a tongue to catch them....

There is so much more to frog day than meets to googly eyes of the critter project!  The kids make a counting wand and practice skip counting by 2, 3, 5, 10's.  We practice counting lilypads and on the number line.

This year we'll be adding some yummy FROGGY & FLY FROTHS  (mint chip shakes) to enjoy after our math explorations.   It's so much fun I could just kiss a frog!

Talk to you soon!
