Groundhog's Day, I looked around, 
Saw my shadow on the ground 
Yes I saw my shadow, when I took a peek 
That means winter 6 more weeks!

My team uses this in Kindergarten and the kids love it! Have children trace a groundhog pattern on brown paper and add a craft stick to make a puppet. Give children a piece of blue construction paper, a pre-made hill of green construction paper with "Groundhog Day" written on it and a pre-made yellow sun with "February 2" written on it. Have them glue the ends of the hill and attach to the bottom of the blue paper, leaving the middle free of glue so the groundhog has a space to pop through. Have them glue the sun on an upper corner. Have children use their groundhog and set to act out the poem: "The Groundhog" The groundhog poked his head up And peeking all around Saw his little shadow Lying on the ground The groundhog knew that winter Would last for six weeks more And so he pulled himself back down Inside his little door.

Tune to: (I'm a little Teapot) 

I'm a little groundhog round and plump 
Here is my shadow here is my rump 
Oh I'm a little groundhog short and plump 
I see my shadow I see my rump.

I use a big, clean trash barrel and put one child in at a time. The child pretends to be the groundhog while we sing this song: 

I'm A Little Groundhog (sung to I'm a Little Teapot) 

I'm a little groundhog, furry and brown, 
See me pop while I look around, 
If I see my shadow, down I'll go 
Six more weeks of winter, oh no!

To the tune, I'm A Little Teapot: I'm a little ground hog, short and stout. On ground hog day I pop my head out. If I see my shadow I don't come out. I stay down in my hole and pout. (Dramatize by squatting on the floor in a ball, popping up, peering about and returning to hiding.)

See My Shadow (sung to Frere Jacques): 

See my shadow, see my shadow 
Move this way, move that way. 
See it do what I do, See it do what I do, 
Follow me, follow me.

I'm a little groundhog. Fuzzy and brown When winter comes. I sleep underground, I'm curled up. As cozy as can be. When it's spring. Please wake up me!

Way deep down In a hole in the ground Lived little Georgie Groundhog All furry and round.

Little Georgie Groundhog Popped up one day, He looked around and decided to stay.

But just as Little Georgie Started to play Out popped his shadow And Frighteded him away.

Back down his hole Little Georgie sped Back to his home Back to his bed!

There are several good songs for groundhog's day in the book Huff and Puff on Groundhog Day by Jean Warren.

We ordered the book through one of our monthly book orders. The publisher is Warren Publishing House. There are five songs and seven activiites in the back of the book and the story is cute, too!

Mr. Groundhog--Tune: "Frere Jacques"

Mr. Groundhog, Mr. Groundhog,

Take a peek, Take a peek.

If you see your shadow

The weather will be awful

For six more weeks, six more weeks.
