Homeschoolers delight in groundhog festivities

Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter in Punxsutawney, but the groundhog forecast didn’t cast a shadow over fun for homeschoolers in Greenville this week. Homeschooling families from Sand Lake, Stanton, Greenville, and the surrounding areas gathered at the Greenville Community Center, February 3, to participate in various Groundhog Day activities.

Ranging in age from 1 to 10, over 20 students spent the morning playing games, sharing a Groundhog Day story, making crafts, classifying animals that live above ground and below, doing shadow experiments, tracing silhouettes, “burrowing” through a play tunnel and learning the history of the holiday.

“My kids had a blast whacking moles and learning about groundhogs,” shared Patty Hone. “It’s so nice our kids have a place to connect, play and learn with other children.”

Greenville Michigan Homeschoolers is an inclusive homeschool group for Greenville and the surrounding areas. They meet every other Wednesday at the Greenville Community Center, in addition to monthly field trips and mom nights. For more information, visit http://www.greenvillemichiganhomeschoolers.com.

I am so very excited and hope that this will help us attract some more members. Homeschoolers delight in groundhog festivities […]
