Groundhog Day Songs, Poems & Fingerplays

 

FEBRUARY 2

There's only one day the whole long year, that I hope the pray the sun won't appear.

The second of February, you all know, the ground hog goes searching for his shadow.

If he should find it, the story is told, we'll have six more weeks of winter's cold.

But if it's cloudy, his shadow's not there. There'll soon be warm weather and days will be fair.

So please, Sun, for just this one day, find a big dark cloud--and stay away!

 

HERE'S A LITTLE GROUNDHOG
(sung to "I'm A Little Teapot")
Here's a little groundhog,
furry and brown,
He's popping up
to look around.
If he sees his shadow,
down he'll go.
Then six more weeks of winter
- oh, no!

 

GROUNDHOG, GROUNDHOG

Groundhog, Groundhog, popping up today.
Groundhog, Groundhog, can you play?
If you see your shadow, hide away.
If there is no shadow, you can stay.
Groundhog, Groundhog, popping up today.
Groundhog, Groundhog, can you play?

 

LOOK ALL AROUND
(sung to "I'm a Little Teapot")

See the little groundhog,
Furry and Brown.
See the little groundhog,
Look all around.
If he sees his shadow,
down he goes.
There's more winter,
Little Groundhog knows.

 

LITTLE GROUNDHOG
("sung to "Little White Duck")

There's a little groundhog
Who lives in the ground,
A little groundhog
Who likes to look around.
She comes outside on
Groundhog's Day
If she sees her shadow,
then she runs away.
There's a little groundhog,
Who loves to stay and play
When spring's on its way.

 

CAN YOU PLAY?
(sung to "Frere Jacques")

Little groundhog, little groundhog,
Can you play, can you play?
Popping up your head, Popping up your head,
Can you play? Don't run away.
Little Groundhog, Little groundhog,
Can you play, can you play?
Running all around, On the cold hard ground
Can you play? Please, please stay!
Little groundhog, little groundhog,
Can you play, can you play?
You can't see your shadow, You can't see your shadow,
Here comes spring, hip hurray!

 

I'M A LITTLE GROUNDHOG

(sung to "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little groundhog,
Furry and Brown.
When winter comes
I sleep underground.
I'm curled up
As cozy as can be.
When it's spring,
Please wake me!

 

NINE LITTLE GROUNDHOGS
(sung to "Ten Little Indians")

One little, two little, Three little groundhogs,

Four little, five little, Six little groundhogs,

Seven little, eight little, Nine little groundhogs,

Sleeping down under the ground.

Have fun singing this song with loud voices, with "inside voices", with whisper voices, & then with "lip" voices (lips move but no sound comes out).

 

WHAT IS A SHADOW (finger play)

If I walk, my shadow walks. (Use two fingers, in walking motion)

If I run, my shadow runs (Same fingers in running motion)

And when I stand still, as you can see (Same fingers, standing still)

My shadow stands beside me. (Use first two fingers on other hand and stand beside the first two fingers) When I hop, my shadow hops, (First two fingers, hopping)

When I jump, my shadow jumps (Same fingers, jump) And when I sit still, as you can see, (same fingers, bend at knuckles to sit.) My shadow sits beside of me, (Use as before, both sets of fingers sitting beside each other. )
