Groundhog Day Writing!
This resource contains a Spin a Silly Groundhog Day Story mat available in both color and b/w. Using a pencil and a paper clip, students spin both spinner on the Groundhog Day Story mat. The mat contains the groundhog as the character, a problem or activity, and a setting. When all 3 story elements are combined students will create a simple narrative writing summary sentence. One possible summary sentence is: The groundhog predicts six more years of winter in Punxsutawney. These summary sentences help spark the natural imagination of each child. Once students create their summary sentence, they will add detail, description, and dialogue to make their story come to life.
This resource also includes a Groundhog Day Comic. Students will complete the comic by writing words in the speech and though bubbles. Students may also add color to the comic.
Two Groundhog Day Writing Papers are also included in this resource.
