This long weekend has been so nice. I really needed a break . . .
We finished up my wild west unit. We had so much fun learning about cowboys and all things Texas.
Here is a look at week two!
We read this adorable book and then completed the writing, "Every cowgirl/boy needs ____ boots."
Here is the craft we made to go with our writing. They water colored the boots.
Then we graphed who had cowboy boots and analyzed the data on their recording sheet.
This was my favorite activity. We read armadilly chili and made our own chili in a crock pot. They thought I was the best cook ever. (I used chili in a can!) We completed the chart using interactive writing. Then they each completed their own how to writing.
We labeled the cowboy and cowgirl to build oral language. While doing this they each completed their own brace map.
We having been working on writing to inform and at the end of the week they were able to publish their own Texas book. These stay in the classroom for everyone to read.
Our bulletin board with all our crafts we made throughout the week. The bluebonnets, and rattlesnakes are from Chalk Talk.
We also made chili pepper patterns. This idea is also from Chalk Talk.
