So I kind of love this cheesy holiday and think that it is fun! I also think that the movie is simply hilarious too! Anyway, on to the important stuff right! Did he see his shadow this year?
This day is perfect to talk not only about weather, but shadows too! Here is a picture of an art project that a colleague of mine completed with her kids last year:
Check out this adorable you-tube video featuring a fun little song to sing:
We made this cute little graph, which I got from Primary Perspective’s Groundhog Unit, you can download this here.
We also read this cute book from First Grade Teaching Blog:
The photos below are of some of the activities that we completed from Kinder Hoppening’s Groundhog Unit:
We also made this cute Groundhog Activity, and I think that I got the idea from the Mailbox years ago. Students cut out a construction paper groundhog and placed him in the bag. They also glued a little song about a groundhog, which you can download here: groundhog poem. We discussed shadows and positional words while students acted out positional words with their groundhogs. Here is a picture of the project:
We also read a few fun groundhog books:
So that’s all I have for now, but I hope that all of you had a fun Groundhog Day! Here’s too an Early Spring (for those of you that didn’t already know that Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow this morning :)).
