SO, I have some new projects up my sleeve that I will get to share soon, but it has put me in a position that I don't have as much time to work on materials. I haven't made anything for February or March except my Old Lady Rose and Old Lady Clover packets. This gives me anxiety cause I usually have more stuff ready for holidays! Over the weekend I started freaking out about my lack of time and starting checking out PediaStaff's Pinterest boards for Groundhog Day, which is up next on my Theme Calendar. (P.S. If you don't follow PediaStaff, you are missing out!) I found TONS of good stuff and combined it with my ability to come up with therapy activities involving scissors slash glue and VOILA! Groundhog week is go for launch! Today I am going to share my artic activities with you....free groundhog printable and then I made up a sheet that said "I predict the Groundhog __________" and cut it into strips.
I know what you are thinking...here she goes again with the wipes container. But this one is cute and simple and super easy! All you need is the container, long green construction paper (I think mine is 12x19), and a pic of a groundhog (missing from my lovely photo...oops!).
SRN's open ended groundhog game, I will put the cards they draw in here. It didn't get much action today since I mostly did my craft above, but it was sitting on my table all day and my kids thought it was cool and were ready to stick their hands in! Lol
Hope you enjoy these ideas and maybe they spark something that you might do in your speech room! Check back tomorrow to hear what groundhoggy things I am doing with my language groups this week!
Don't forget to tell me what you think! And are you doing any groundhog themed activities this week?
