Groundhog Day – FIAR – Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

mike-mulligan

This week we rowed “Mike Mulligan and HIs Steam Shovel” we planned to read it the same week as Groundhog Day.  Did you know that a groundhog can dig up to 700 lbs of dirt in just one day!  We had planned to take a field trip to our local Waste & Recycling Center but we got rained out (more on that later).  I guess it’s 6 more weeks of winter for us!  Here are our favorite groundhog books that we found at the library:

groundhog-gets-a-say

“Groundhog Gets A Say” by Pamela Curtis Swallow, illustrated by Denise Brunkus

groundhog-day

“Groundhog Day!” by Gail Gibbons

I made the kids felt groundhog finger puppets and then they helped me make “grassy” green felt covered cardboard tube burrows.
