Big Sur

This week in Big Sur, we learned about Groundhog Day and shadows.

We asked on Monday.. “Will the groundhog see his shadow?” We voted yes or no.

The next day we talked with friends about how the groundhog didn’t see his shadow, and we would have Spring come early this year!

 

We used the 1 Minute Tower to see how many cubes we could stack and make an icicle!

In our groups, we listened to “Wake up, Groundhog” on CD. After we listened, we drew what our favorite part was!

Using clipboards, we found pictures and words. Friends wrote down what the words were! We practiced letter writing.
