wild west unit week one

We started our week learning all about horses and cowboys. We read Horses by Gail Gibbons and then wrote about horses.

(I love how this girl labeled the apples)


I got this book last year and it is precious. After we read it we made a class book about what every cowboy and cowgirl needs.

We made two class books. One for the cowgirls and one for the cowboys.


 Then we made this horse from Mrs. Larremore at Chalk Talk

We read a lot of books about cowboys. Here is one of our chit-chat messages.

We made a cowboy tree map

We learned about cowboy clothing and its function. We made a circle map with all the clothing a cowboy wears.

(I just updated my wild west unit and this is in it)

Then they made cowgirls and cowboys and finished the sentence prompt. They had to pick an item of clothing or  tool and tell me what it is used for.

Everything above can be found in my wild west math and literacy unit. If you already bought it go back and download load the updated copy. I added a few more things.

Your horse on your anchor chart is too cute! I'm so jealous of your artistic ability.

My niece would have been in horsey heaven if she were in your class!

Your classroom books are sweet. I love making those too. We'll have so many that kids get at least two at the end of the year as souvenirs.

This unit looks like fun to teach. How much time did it take to teach it? All of your charts look amazing! Your bog is one of my favorites! I would love for you to come check out my new blog.
