{Books Teachers Love}- Groundhog Gets a Say


Welcome back to another month of Books Teachers Love! February is such a pick me up when it comes to lesson planning! January is fun with the winter theme and penguins...but I just adore Valentine's Day books, 100th Day books, President's Day, and Groundhog's Day books too! 

I choose "Groundhog Gets a Say" by Pamela Curtis as my book this month. 

It is the cutest little book, it is written from the groundhog's perspective and is a little 'ranty' in an adorable way! It starts off with Groundhog wondering where everyone is the morning after the big day. He goes on to wonder why people only seem to want his weather report one day out of the year when he has so many other talents to share! He describes them while listing out facts & tidbits about the groundhog. 

I like to use this book to start a class discussion on Groundhog's Day. I like to make a bubble map with a groundhog in the center. After we read the story the kids have so many things to add to the concept map besides the one day weather report!

  1. This sounds like a great book to help integrate a little nonfiction into our Groundhog's Day fun! Thanks for sharing!
