Groundhog Day Recap

We had a great time learning about groundhogs last week!  We had a snow day on Tuesday and a delay on Wednesday, so we were short on time.  We made it work!

We began our study with a K-W-L organizer.  The kids had a decent amount of background information, because a couple weeks ago, I strategically placed a basket of books about groundhogs out!  The kids also came up with some great questions!

We had a lot of fun with our groundhog centers.

We colored and read our mini-books about groundhogs.

We made a fun groundhog snack!  These can be made with Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies, mini Nilla wafers, white icing in a can/tube, and chocolate chips.

We ended the day with this groundhog craft!  To make it you need: paper plates, toothpicks, white paper, a black Sharpie marker, googly eyes, and brown construction paper.

Here's some groundhog day writing/predictions with Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies' free groundhog headband {turned paper holder!}.

Finally, I leave you with a groundhog day quote that I overhead from one of my students: "If the groundhog sees his shadow, I'm going to break every bone in his body."  Yeah, folks.  That's how we roll.

Centers, writing paper, and K-W-L pieces can be found below!

I've also got a great sentence types freebie for you below:
