Groundhogs, b{ean}s and b{ea}rs!!!

We definitely worked on fine motor skills today! Lots of sorting, cutting and gluing going on in our class!!

I always love discussing Groundhog’s day! I love to see the kiddos predictions after reading a few groundhog books. Their predictions are MOST always a vote for the Spring! These babies are ready to get outside and play!!! With all the storms, and yucky weather we have had lately… we have been doing a lot of indoor recess. Thumbs down!

So, here is a little look at our graph we made based off our predictions. I am sure you can guess what prediction won in our class :)

After we made our predictions, the kiddos had to write a sentence about their prediction and write a second sentence about what would happen if this prediction were to happen.

You can get these writing activities and crafts in my Groundhog’s Day Fun packet. It is 20% off until Friday, Feb. 1st!

We also made some delicious and colorful jelly beans today for our phonics lesson. We have been working on the two /e/ sounds that {ea} makes.

I forgot to get pics of the sort we did prior to making our jelly b{ea}ns.

We also enjoyed some jelly beans and bears for the 2 different sounds!

We are off to watch Mr. Hudgeons play soccer. Yes he is 30 and still believes he is 20! The games are always quite the entertainment!!

  2. Those groundhogs are so cute! I LOVE that craftivity! I told myself I wouldn't buy another groundhog unit, but... this one is just too cute. I might have to break my own promise! :)
