Groundhog Day Dice Game Freebie!

Hi everyone!  Hope you had a great week.  We have a little bit of snow that allowed the teachers to leave 20 minutes early yesterday.  It has been so cold that we've had indoor recess allllllll week....  Next week is supposed to warm up a little.

I'm planning on having groundhog fun next week.  It's the first time that Groundhog Day doesn't come during the week!  I'm excited to actually get in a FULL week of Groundhog stuff!  I created a research packet that my kids will be doing.  It also includes a graphing activity, some comprehension pages to use with any groundhog themed book and also some writing----like a letter to the groundhog telling him/her to see the shadow or to not see the shadow...  I'm rooting for no shadow!  I want some WARM weather SOON!!! ;)

You can click on the picture to see more about my packet.  I'm going to have it on sale through Sunday night!

Here's a freebie for ya too!  It's 2 different dice roll games using the 120 chart.  There's a back story to both, but it's not on the paper.  The first one is wanting spring.  So when the player lands on a cloud---they get to move 10 ahead.  If they land on the sun, they go back 10.  (Clouds get you closer to spring---cause that's a fighting chance that he didn't see his shadow!)  The second one is winter---so if they land on the sun they move 10, if they land on the clouds they go back.

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'm hoping the Groundhog doesn't see his shadow.  I want some warmer weather!!!!  What do you want him to do?

  5. Angie,
    Thank you for the free game! Your packet looks great! What do your students use to do their research? Books, the internet???

    1. I'm using a variety that I had purchased over the years from Scholastic as well as some from the school library (which I forgot to check for on Friday! oops!) Here's some of the ones I have: Groundhog Weather School, The Groundhog Day Book of Facts and Fun (we'll read this one together for some of the pages-it's much more advanced for them to look in), Groundhog Gets a Say, Groundhog Day by Gail Gibbons.. i think there might be more, but I'm not sure right now. Those you can also find on Amazon. Unfortunately I don't have many for this project that has indexes that my kids are used to using for the last 2 research projects we've done on penguins and hibernation.

      Hope that helped!

    2. Thank you Angie! That does help!
