Captivate students with holiday themed fun while meeting learning standards! This 86 page packet is packed full of excitement.

What's included...

Build background knowledge on groundhogs with a KWL or Can, Have, Are chart. Keep up with facts or allow students to organize their sticky notes with the fact page.

Included is a heavy dose of vocabulary to assist language learners with words such as groundhog, burrow, hibernate, peek, forecast, weather, shadow, predict, kit, herbivore, rodent, marmot, handler, and diurnal.

Provided are several options for recording vocabulary words. Option one includes a vocabulary book with clipart images. Option two includes blank vocabulary response pages. Option three includes interactive pages.

Read various stories throughout the week using comprehension response sheets with an animal comparison, story map, main events, and connections.

Also provided is a developing informational reader on groundhogs. Each vocabulary word has been underlined in the text. A color reader is provided for whole group instruction. Save ink! You can display this file on the white board. A blackline is included for independent student bags.

Having the blackline reader will be a great reference for student research. Use sticky notes and the provided graphic organizer. Once thoughts are ordered, students can use the paper at the end of the packet to create their own informational piece. Included: an editable cover, editable heading, place for a diagram/illustration, and writing lines.

Advanced first or second grade classrooms can work to classify the animal with a visual display!

**NEWLY ADDED** are a few text features to allow students practice with a title page, table of contents, bold print words, a map, and a glossary. Also included is a checklist for students to help identify text features included.

Please check out the 15 page preview to see visuals of the entire document!
