It is Rodeo time, here in Houston, Texas! During the end of February and beginning of March is when I like to teach about “the lone star state”. By this time of the school year, most students are writing great sentences with their sight words. The book below is a free print out where students can color the pictures and write about what they learned. I like to get lots of books to teach students about each Texas symbol and its meaning. Then, I let students reflect and write! These are the symbols in the book: Texas, mockingbird, pecan tree, Texas flag, United States map, bluebonnet, NASA.
More pictures and ideas are coming soon!
