We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday on Friday with some Green Eggs and Ham.  I'm happy to say that we really liked them....

By the way...Kohl's currently has The Cat in the Hat book and plush for five dollars each.  (They also have Horton)

I am also enjoying a new (to me) book about animals that hatch from eggs:

I have been working on a set of Bunny and Egg Printables.  They cover CVC words, color words, sight words, counting syllables, recognizing numbers, number words, tallying, and more.  You can download this set of puzzles FREE at my Teachers Notebook Shop:

Just click on the picture.

There's much more in the complete file:

How cute is Kate Hadfield's clipart?

I'm printing the black and white number puzzles on pastel cardstock.  What are you doing related to eggs?  I will email this file to the first three comments on this post with great ideas for eggs in the classroom.

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.
