Texas Time

Posted by Eilis on February 24, 2013 at 11:10 PM

It's Rodeo Time in Houston, so we are doing all things Texas in our classroom right now.

 

Friday was Go Texan Day, so everyone wore their cowboy gear.  These two cowboys are playing the Cattle Roping game from my Round Up Printables. Are the kids adorable or what?!  They love the fact that in this game they roll the die and then decide whether they want to go forwards or backwards.  The goal is to land on a cattle space, so the player adds a cow to his/her ten frame.

We also made Texas flags from construction paper:

I have created some new Texas themed printables using wonderful clipart by Katie Dang. The set is $2 at my Teachers Notebook Shop.  It includes a poster of the Texas Pledge, Texas word wall cards, a Texas memory game, a Texas emergent reader, a Texas song, a pocket chart graph question.

  

   

      

You can print this puzzle FREE by downloading the Free Preview of my Texas Printable File.

  

Before I go...I want to share a Western style Cinderella story with you.  It's not a new book, but it is new to me and my class just loved it.  It is Bubba, the Cowboy Prince by Helen Ketteman.


Blessings,

  


Cowboy Themed Printables

I have added a 69 page printable file to my Teachers Notebook Shop.  It includes loads of cowboy, ranch, or rodeo themed books, songs, games, puzzles, and more to use in your classroom.  

In the Cattle Roping Dice Game, students roll the die and decide whether to move forwards or backwards.  The goal is to land on spaces with cows on them, and fill the ten frames.  The playing pieces are cute cowboys and cowgirls which you cut out, fold, and tape or glue.  You will need your own die.

The entire file is $2.50.
