We celebrated Groundhog Day at Circle Time today by learning a new rhyme about Mr. Groundhog.
To do the rhyme, ball your hand up into a fist -- this is Mr. Groundhog's house. Your thumb is Mr. Groundhog, and he should be tucked inside his house as the rhyme begins. Here's the rhyme:
Mr. Groundhog in the ground
Pop (pop up your thumb) your head up, look around.
Look up high (put your thumb up high)
Look down low (put your thumb lower)
Will you see your little shadow?
