Jumbo Groundhog Slap Games

Happy Groundhog Day! Can you still use a few things?

If you're like me, I like to use groundhogs as a theme for the first week of February.
One day just doesn't seem like enough time to learn about these interesting animals.

With that in mind, I designed these super-fun, groundhog-themed activities.

Your students will really enjoy playing these games, as they slap a variety of groundhog cards, with a flyswatter, to show that they know specific standards.  This is a really fun, quick and easy way to whole-group assess as well.

Students practice recognizing skip counted numbers, shapes, colors, groundhog-related words, (there are 54!) + upper and lowercase letters.

The packet includes a list of tips, ideas and games for how to use the cards, including the exciting "Kaboom!" game.

There are blank masters for each kind of card, plus cover cards, so that students can make Itty Bitty Books.

I've also included a cover for a Groundhog Day Word book that would be wonderful for your Daily 5 word work activities.

There's also a certificate of praise.
