Groundhog Day is a fun day to celebrate, but its picture book selection cries out for supplements. Sarah at Read It Again! created a great shadow game last week. My inspiration comes from Skip to My Lou.
Grass on a stick? Push up the stick and, voilà! Groundhog looks for its shadow!
This could be used to accompany just about any Groundhog’s Day rhyme, such as the collection at Preschool Express. Use it with a crook-neck lamp to manipulate the groundhog’s shadow. Ask the children questions like “Does it count if we can see the shadow, but the groundhog can’t see it?”
Today’s Flannel Friday roundup is hosted by me.
