Holy Groundhog Batman!

Whew! For real y'all- I've been working on Groundhog Day activities for what seems like forever. 
 I have a special place in my heart for Punxsutawney Phil because Groundhog's Day is my mothers favorite holiday!

Yes, really! It's a big deal too. Her friends all send her cards, relatives call, and we have chocolate cake. We try to keep things interesting in my family!

And is it Groundhog Day or Groundhog's Day? Who knows. I say both. I've seen both.  While creating this packet of goodies I did find out the Phil is 125 years old. He drinks magic juice at the Groundhog Picnic each summer and it adds years to his life. Time to share Phil- especially if it gets rid of wrinkles and gray hair! (Of course I don't have any gray hair, and I'm sure you don't either)

The packet includes a few writing activities and a read the room comprehension activity for your very high first grade readers or for your second grade readers. I used the fabulous Ashley Hughes clip art for all of my groundhogs. HOLLA! Loved it!

(Apparently I also love me some "explanation points" too! It's all the assessing we're doing! I see the end in sight and I can't help myself!)

It's available in my TPT store- just click on the picture!
Have a great day!

  2. Haha, I love exclamation points too! Some people say I overuse them! But I say, "what's the harm in being enthusiastic?"

    You packet looks great!

    Happy Friday!

  4. Magic juice, eh? Sounds like Phil has found the fountain of youth - I could use some of that!

    Your pack looks great!
