Groundhog Day Activities {Pop-up Craft, Mini-book and More!}

Image

I have to be honest, I’m really hoping that Punxsutawney Phil does not see his shadow this year!  I love warm weather and I’m already ready for some sunny days and gardening.

I created this Groundhog Day Unit as a fun way for students to learn some facts about groundhogs and make an enjoyable craft at the same time.  I almost squealed with delight the first time I had the groundhog pop in and back out of his burrow with the craft stick.

There is a groundhog reader included that has an easy reader version and a little more advanced version.  I love having the options to challenge more advanced readers while meeting the needs of the up and coming readers as well!

MLK Day Craftivity Giveaway!

i have a dream mlk character craftivity

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day I’ve created a character craftivity!  I absolutely love the quote by Dr. King where he says “…they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  During this MLK craft and printables students will explore different attributes that make up good character, discussing why it’s important not to judge others on their outside appearance.
