Little Georgie Groundhog

Invite children to act out this little action rhyme after you share with them the legend of Groundhog Day.

Little Georgie Groundhog
   [children crouch]
Popping out to see
   [children pop up]
If he finds his shadow
   [children look around for their shadows]
It's there! My, oh me!
   [children point and clap]

Little Georgie Groundhog
   [children standing]
Goes back down to bed
   [children crouch down, close eyes]
Spring will not be here soon,
   [children rub eyes as if crying]
Winter stays instead!
   [children jump up and shout last line]
