If you’re looking for a little something to share with your students on Groundhog Day
, I think you’ll enjoy this “flip the flap” craftivity.
It can be a simple card
for little ones to make. There are 3 “Happy Groundhog Day!” greeting options
, which are revealed when you flip the legs of the groundhog cover up.
You can also make a “Flip the Flap For Facts”
booklet, with interesting information
about Groundhog DAY
As with all of my packets, I’ve included a full-color, teacher’s edition
, so you can quickly and easily make an example to share with your students.
Make your teacher booklet and read
it to little ones so they learn a bit about Groundhog Day
, then have them transition to making the card.
There are also 2 black and white versions
so students can make their own booklet.
So that you can differentiate
your lessons, I’ve included an emergent reader
option, packed with lots of Dolch sight words
, as well as a preschool
“trace the word & color the pictures” version.
There are 10 interesting fact pages
with matching graphics, plus 5 optional
pages for you to choose from.
Use all of the pages for your teacher’s sample, then pick fewer pages for your students’ booklets.
For quick printing, there are 2 “flip up” pages to a one-page template. The groundhog’s body is a full page. Be sure and check the PREVIEW
to see lots of samples.
Besides the 3 booklets and card, I’ve also included a “Fun Fact” worksheet
. Use this after you read your booklet to check comprehension
. Children color the groundhog
then jot down an interesting fact that they learned, or their favorite one.
Completed projects make a cute February bulletin board
I’ve included a “Groundhog Day Fun!” poster
for the center of your display.
There are also 2 graphing extensions
to go along with the optional "question" pages.(See PREVIEW).
also celebrates Groundhog Day
on February 2nd, I included 2 pages with the alternate “colour” spelling, as well as a Venn diagram
activity comparing our Phil with their Will, plus a photograph poster
featuring both groundhogs.
There are several map worksheets
of both countries as well.
If you studied Canada
during your “Christmas Around the World” travels, this is a fun way to revisit those lessons.
So....you've covered non-fiction
reading, a bit of science
, some writing
a dash of math
, plus a smidge of geography
all with one craftivity, which you can feature on an easy-peasy bulletin board!
Woo hoo for you!
A cute “go along” activity with this booklet, is my other flip the flap groundhog booklet which features interesting facts about groundhogs
