Izzie made a cute little groundhog on a craft stick to move in and out of his hole (yogurt cup)! Idea from here.
We also sang the Mr. Groundhog song, while playing with the groundhog craft.
Mr. Groundhog--Tune: "Frere Jacques"
Mr. Groundhog, Mr. Groundhog,
Take a peek, Take a peek.
If you see your shadow
The weather will be awful
For six more weeks, six more weeks.
Izzie had a great time matching up the lower-case groundhogs to their capital letter hole.
File folder printable found here.
In addition, she correctly sequenced numbers 0-30. In order not to overwhelm her, I gave Izzie numbers 0-10 first, once she had them in correct order, I gave her numbers 11-20, and finally 21-30.
Izzie loves Dot Art!
This was Izzie's first Emergent Reader that she completed (could not get the picture to turn around). She did super with it and I'm so excited to begin focusing on sight words with her. For this activity, I highlighted the sight word "see" on each mini-page and color coded the "color" words too.
She was able to "read" the entire booklet and was so proud of herself!
We had a fun filled morning, even if we are going to have 6 more weeks of bad weather!

Words to book:
I see a red hat
I see purple buttons
I see an orange nose (she says beak because it looks like a beak)
I see a green scarf
I see blue eyes
I see a yellow sun
I see a black shadow
Now you don't see me!
