To Gobbler's Knob. It's Groundhog Day!

Groundhog Day, such a silly little tradition but nonetheless it is fun! I started to think about all my traditional stuff and decided I need to do/make more. I know it's just one day, but I figure...might as well make it count!

I cannot say how much I LOVE this book. I ordered it in the Scholastic SeeSaw January book order. Two words...SUPER CUTE!

The day before we make a graph as to whether or not the we think the groundhog will see his shadow. A very traditional activity. Here's my a picture of my graph.

Here is a new math activity. I based it on graphing heads or tails. I plan on copying the coin part on cardstock to make it a little heavier. Have students color and cut out the circle groundhogs. Tape or glue them together. Have them flip it and graph the results.
Shadow or No Shadow

A groundhog puzzle. It's pretty basic.

The final activity is a book...I use this term loosely. It's a "cheesetastic" book! The goals are for students to track the words, read the sight words, use the pictures for unfamiliar text, and to notice the silly rhyming. The book is simple and a bit silly :)

**Please note, if you copy it...the last two pages are not supposed to be used together. I plan on using the page that actually matches the outcome of whether or not our friend the Groundhog saw his shadow.
