Groundhog Day…Can you dig it?

Great Groundhogs! Where did January go? Sunday is Groundhog Day for furry sake. IF (insert snow dance) we go to school on Friday, I'm planning to introduce Mr. Groundhog to my kinders.

Since I was home all day, I whipped up this interactive high-frequency words book. To introduce the sight words in a reading group, I'm going to use a pair of toy binoculars. I'll let each "groundhog" have a turn reading the words and building the sentences. 

Next week Mr. Groundhog—the geologist—is going to help us learn about rocks and soils. It's time to get down and dirty with some earth science. I'll post pictures from this unit next week.

Meanwhile, here's a poem you can use with a groundhog circle map. 

Mr. Groundhog's getting ready to pop out of the snow.

He's a little weatherman and he puts on a show.

If he sees his shadow, then he will surely go.

Now what about that groundhog. Tell me what you know!
