Groundhog Day Lesson Plans

January 29 Deedee 2 min read

To be honest, I’m not sure why I love Groundhog Day… it is in the dead of winter and we are almost always expected to get 6 more weeks of winter.   BUT I do love it!

So how do we celebrate?  I’m so glad you asked.

Poetry

This year, I wrote a new poem for Groundhog Day!

If you have our Poetry Music and Video files, you may have noticed something different.  I have added QR codes to the student poems.  In this way, students can take their poetry notebooks home and practice the poem!  Here is a sampling of February’s poems.  I am kind of excited!

Other Videos

I am a HUGE fan of SciShow Kids on YouTube!

The Substitute Groundhog by Pat Miller

Groundhog’s Runaway Shadow by David Biedrzycki  [LOVE}

Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons

The Substitute Groundhog was one of your listening station activities from Scholastic a few years back.  It is included in THIS bundle.  

I reactivated the January 2014-2015 in case you are looking for JUST this book.  You can see that file HERE.

    Oooooh! Yes, please do include your previous version of Peek at my Week. They were so helpful. It really helps me get a clear visual of how to organize my own planning with your amazing resources! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing! I purchased your poetry music and video files! My kinders LOVE them! They did have a question about the squirrel in your hibernation song. They asked why you used a squirrel because they don’t hibernate. They wanted me to write to you! LOL! I told them it was a fiction song. They are excited to use your Groundhog poem on Thursday. Thank you again for ALL you do!

    Okay, how do you keep your stamps so clean? Mine have ink all over them!!

    • Deedee February 6 at 5:20 pm

      HA! These are fairly new. I had to replace mine because I had an unfortunate accident with them in transport. HA! they are usually a hot mess and I am totally okay with that. Let it go… let it go….

    I am looking for the worksheet to go with Substitute Groundhog and haven’t found a link that works. Is this still available anywhere?

      Hi Lauren,

      I have retired the 2014-2015 series, but you can still get it in this bundle:
