Getting Ready for Groundhog Day and a Freebie!

That groundhog had better not see his shadow! I've never been more anxious for warmer weather! I love a surprise snow day here and there, but I am so ready to get out of the house and see my kiddos tomorrow! It's been absolutely frigid so I've mostly been hibernating inside, although I did venture out today to do a few errands. I have also kept busy cleaning, creating, and finding cute ideas for Groundhog Day on Pinterest.

Here are some adorable treats I found for my Groundhog board!

I never get to pack a lunch for a little one anymore, but this was just too stinkin' cute not to share! It falls under the too cute to eat category!

Now this one, I may make for my class to enjoy on Monday!It looks like chocolate pudding with crushed Oreos on top, some almond slivers for ears and chocolate frosting dots on a Nilla Wafer for a face. ADORABLE!!!!

With Groundhog Day on a Sunday this year and so many days home due to the cold, I won't be able to spend an entire day devoted to all things brown and furry, but I thought my Pins would be good to keep for another year.

 I also spent my work at home day updating and expanding this Groundhog Day Pack!

It includes activity pages, reading passages, poems, writing pages and more in color and printer-friendly black and white. 

A craft is also included for a fun shadow puppet. If the weather is nice, I take my class outside with their puppets to see if our groundhogs see their shadow. We also use them at recess and they make shadows on the wall near the lamps and in front of the overhead projector lamp! They love this! I only had old tracers for my little guy and so I made new patterns to include in the set as a craftivity to double as a writing peeker too!

There are also pieces that can be used to create a large class graph on a whiteboard, on butcher paper or on a bulletin board. Kiddos can add their yes/no card to the graph. There are title posters and header cards for the graph because it's got to be cute! While each child comes up to cast their vote, the rest of the class can tally and later graph the data collected on the recording sheet.

One of the items in this pack is a fun word search. You can download this little hurry up spring freebie here

I hope you can use it with your class!

Well... Hi Ho, it's off to work I go... tomorrow for sure! 
Have a great end to your week!
