The Groundhog will be out soon and we need to get ready to say "hola" in our classes.  You might like to try this in your classes:

Teaching Tips

Materials: In preparation for this activity, you will need to use a groundhog coloring page and paste it on a piece of black construction paper and cut it out, letting them see the shape of the groundhog. You will also need a set of flashlights.

Use the flashlight to project the groundhog's shadow and have the groundhog hide from it.

With older children, tape a piece of white paper on a wall and project their shadow using a flashlight. Have the children take turns and trace a few shadows.

Have a set of flashlights and have one part of the class chase the other part with a flashlight. In family classes, parents or caregivers can play with the shadows along with their child.

Hide the groundhog in the room and have the children find it.

Dance to the rhythm of "La Marmota" song. Sample the song on Amazon.

Have fun playing the game!
