I still feel like we are just coming back from Winter Break, and yet, Groundhog’s Day is only 2 weeks away! Groundhog’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate in the classroom. It is super child-friendly and adds a sense of “magic” to the air simply by the fact that the act of a shadow can predict our weather patterns. Just in time for the occasion, I’ve decided to make a Groundhog’s Day Pack to help channel in on the fun of the day!
This pack has everything you need to celebrate the big day! Starting of course, with party hats! There are two choices depending on what happens with the groundhog’s big debut in Punxsutawney!
Along with the hats is a foldable reader with one sentence explanations of how the holiday works and what happens if the groundhog does or does not see his shadow. While these are a lot of fun, my favorite part of the pack is the ultra simple craft!
What better time to introduce (or reintroduce) the shape, hearts! Just in time for hearts to flood our classroom for Valentine’s Day, this sweet groundhog craft is made out of three hearts!
There’s also an option for a blank face if you’d like your kiddos to draw their own groundhog face!
There are also printables for tallying and graphing predictions for if the groundhog will see his shadow, making predictions as you read, and compound words (like groundhog!)
I hope you can find TONS of use for this pack in your own classroom! Get it here in my TPT store!
Have a Happy Groundhog’s Day (I personally am rooting for no shadow and Spring to come early!)
Keep your head in the clouds!
