From this pack students can practice many skills (reading, comprehension, punctuation, parts of speech, writing) while having fun learning about groundhogs
The following activities are included:
-5 text pages and 5 comprehension question pages to go with each page of text. There are 3 texts about groundhogs, 1 about Groundhog Day, and 1 about Punxsutawney Phil. They are designed so that you can read one page/answer questions each day, but you can certainly read more than 1 page at time if you have high readers. I use the passages with my first grade students, but could certainly be used for read aloud for kindergarteners as well.
-Pre-Reading page – What I Know About Groundhogs /What I Want to Know About Groundhogs.
-Just the Facts page – Used for writing facts about groundhogs, Groundhog Day, or Punxsutawney Phil.
-2 Final Writing pages - All About Groundhog and My Life as a Groundhog
-Groundhog/Phil comparison pages - 1 page is a Venn Diagram. You can have students write similarities/differences on the Venn Diagram, or use the next page with it. Students cut out the phrases and glue them on the Venn Diagram. After gluing them, the students write the phrases as complete sentences. There is also a third comparison page where students write down in boxes how Phil and regular groundhogs are the same, different, and which type of groundhog you rather be
