We will be working on Multiplication and Division.
We need to know our Facts in a snap! So let's play Leap Frog. Each week you will receive a study guide of the facts you need to know in a quick "leap". If you miss one or less, you jump up to the next lily pad level! Let's see how high you can go! We will test every Friday! Those that prepare will be ready to LEAP!

Q: What's a frog's favorite game to play at recess?
Wide Mouth Frog
(When you tell this, you have to do the frog's lines while stretching your mouth wide.)
A wide-mouthed frog went to the zoo to see what the other animals feed their offspring.
"Mrs. Elephant," said the wide-mouthed frog, "What do you feed your babies?"
"I feed them elephant milk," said the elephant.
"Oh, that's nice." (<--- in the wide-mouthed enunciation.)
She walked on to the hippopotamus. Mrs. Hippopotamus, what do you feed your babies?"
"I feed them hippopotamus milk."
"Oh, that's nice."
Next, she encountered the lion. "Mrs. Lion, what do you feed your babies?"
"I feed them wide-mouthed frogs."
(Scrunching your mouth up as tight as possible --->) "Oh, that's nice."
There once was a little frog who wanted to take out a home improvement loan to fix up his pad. His name is Kermit Jagger.
Frog Joke #2
He hopped over to his local bank, went up to the teller and said, "Hi, I'd like to take out a loan to fix up my pad." The teller replied, "You need to see our loan officer. Her name is "Patricia Black." So the frog hops over to the loan officer's desk and sits down. When Patricia arrives she ask, "What can I do for you?" The frog says, "I'd like to take out a loan to fix up my pad." Patricia asked, "What do you have for collateral?" After thinking for a couple of moments about what he could offer the frog reaches into his little froggy pocket and pulls out a small white elephant. "This is a very unusual form of collateral." said Patricia. "I'll have to check with our bank president to see if it's ok."
Patricia goes to the president and says, "There's a frog named Kermit Jagger out there who want's a home loan and this white elephant is all he is offering for collateral. What should I do?"
The bank president takes the small white elephant and after carefully examining it hands it back to Patricia and says,
"It's a nick-knack Patty Black give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."
It seems there were two frogs sitting on a lily pad, when all of a sudden, a fly came along. One frog put out his tongue, ate the fly, and started laughing hysterically. Soon the other frog joined in the laughter.
Later in the day, the other frog ate a fly and the two frogs burst out in laughter. As time went on, the frogs enjoyed the flies so much that the sight of a fly would cause them to double up with pleasure (if it's possible for frogs to double up!). But of course, the most pleasure came when the fly was actually eaten.
A third frog hopped up to the first two and asked what was so funny. The first frog answered "Time." "Huh?" asked the third frog. The second frog explained:
"Time's fun when you're having flies."
