Today went pretty well but it was definitely a learning experience. Firstly, there are not a lot of good groundhog books. Then more than half the kids showed up 10 minutes late (after I had already finished the most fun parts of the program)..
So that was a bummer.
But I guess I’ll post the parts I liked. for future reference. I did make some quite adorable little felt groundhogs to go with a song I found here.. Mostly I didn’t feel like making the ten required for them to work with a book. I generally shy away from doing more than one “5 little, 10 little 6 little etc” songs/rhymes/books but as I said. the pickings were kinda slim.
Groundhogs in progress… I made these using a clip art I found of a hamster and then just used the print out as my template, as you can see at the top left of the picture.
The book I used later was Ten Grouchy Groundhogs by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook.
