WESTERN, RODEO, TEXAS

Interactive Big Books

Children love cowboys and they will love dressing up their cowboy for the rodeo to the tune Muffin Man. Multicultural!! Print out the book of your choice: a cowboy of color or a caucasian cowboy! Literacy skills are developed as children dress the cowboy while singing the familiar tune. These books are also a great resource for teaching English as a second language. Anyone can use these books to help children learn to read.

ART

CACTUS

Rock salt and small crumpled red tissue paper was glued on cactus shapes.


STATE OF TEXAS

They drew an oil rig, painted bluebonnets and put a heart sticker for our school. CCA is deep in the heart of Texas!


TEXAS SYMBOLS

BLUEBONNETS

Our bluebonnets were made using the old kind of kitchen sponges (the kind on a plastic stick) and 3 paint colors: dark blue, light blue and white. Gently dip the sponge in each color then blot around pre drawn stem and leaves. The 3 colors and the sponge give the painting a beautiful unique color and texture.

PECAN TREE

Our pecan tree leaves were made with 2 colors of tissue paper glued on a leaf shape and a pecan half glued in the center.

MOCKINGBIRD

Template here. Children color bird and cut out the bird and its wings separately. Punch a hole in the bird and wings- attach with a metal brad.

DOOR DECORATION OF ALL OUR TEXAS SYMBOLS ARTWORK


ROOTIN TOOTIN COWBOY

I preprogrammed this art work first by gluing die cut hat and boots to the top and bottom of a white piece of construction paper. The kids then drew their own cowboy or cowgirl in between the hat and boots. They all turned out very unique. I took dictation about their cowboy and horse.


BOOT HILL

"Boot Hill" - we cut out and decorated boots.


WANTED POSTER

We did a self portrait on a WANTED poster. Of course all my students are wanted because they are special. Each child dictated something about themselves that they like. Get your free pattern here.

MATH

PREDICTING

We played a fun dice game predicting which side of the dice would come up the most times first. We also played this more than once counting the total number of rolls it took to finally complete a column and comparing the the results. I got this game online but don't remember where. If you know please let me know so I can add a link.
