We will be celebrating Groundhog Day the first week of February. Here are some of the activities that we will be planning.
Group Time Activities
Daily Questions are a way to build early language and literacy skills. Children benefit from a curriculum that helps build on their prior experiences. Daily questions help children recall information in a simple yes no question.
Children will be talking about what happens in winter and spring. After the discussion children will sort picture cards into winter or spring.
Small Group Activities
Shadow tracing. Children will learn how as the sun moves so does our shadow.
*Note: This activity can be done indoors by using a desk light and simply move the light around to show how the shadow changes.
Our little one will be learning about opposites with this fun opposite matching game.
Making patterns with the groundhog and some of his friends.
Groundhog needs to find his shapes. Can you help the groundhog collect all of his shapes?
Which hoop has the most groundhogs?
