Bring a bandana


Topic: Rodeo

Let’s have fun with a tradition of the Old West

The value is courage. Frontier people needed courage, and today we need courage to try new things, stand up for what is right, and to do our best every day.

For safety we’ll learn about safety around animals.

Outside, we’ll have a rodeo with barrel racing, shooting peanuts, and a tug of war.

The songs we’ll be singing are Red River Valley, She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain, Home on the Range, Whoopee Ti Yo, and Deep in the Heart of Texas.

For creative dramatics, we’ll practice singing and clapping patterns.

Our art activities are chuck wagon, bucking bronco, bandanas, and lunch bag puppets.

For motor development, we’ll work on flexibility with yoga poses. For proprioception, we’ll carry heavy jugs, point to body parts with our eyes closed, and do turtle walks.
