Groundhog’s Day Resources

Groundhog’s Day is such a fun and quirky holiday to “celebrate” with your students. My Groundhog unit is one of my most favorite units. Here is a closer peek at what is included in this unit. (You can click on any of the pictures to be taken to the unit in my store.)

My favorite part of my Groundhog’s Day Unit & Craft Pack is this big eyed cutie. Seriously can’t stand his big eyes.

This pack also includes materials to learn about both Groundhog’s Day AND just groundhogs in general.
Seeing what the kids write using these writing prompts is always so fun. These prompts/pages allow students to use their imaginations and get as creative as they want. Seriously, how would YOU catch a groundhog?

All my units contain various graphic organizers for you to use to help build schema for your unit. I feel it is necessary to continue supplying these types of organizers to my students in order to help with comprehension of information they are being presented. If we continue to offer these types of resources to our students it will lead to them being able to independently use these skills on their own while reading and learning, which will lead to better comprehension of text and information.

An activity I have been adding to all my units is a one page reading comprehension passage. It reads exactly as my “big” books and student readers do and includes 3 comprehension questions on the bottom for students to answer. All answers can be found within the text. You can have students color code the information they found to answer the question with the question in order to encourage students to make sure their answer is correct.

One of my favorite activities I include in my units is a labeling activity. Various options are provided to allow for differentiation within the classroom. A colored and black and white poster is provided to discuss the parts of a groundhog as a whole group and to then display during your unit. 3 differentiated student labeling activities are also provided: one cut-and-paste activity, one fill-it-in using the word bank, and one fill-it-in with no word bank.

Students will also love the colorful, vibrant, real life pictures in the classroom “big” book. They will be able to follow along with the black and white student reader. They will love having their very own book, just like the teacher :) Big Books and readers are provided for learning all about Groundhogs and Groundhog’s Day.
