W week is upon us and I love this week! On Wednesday we do our big Western round-up! Each teacher takes a different element of a "Dude Ranch". We have 4 PreK teachers. The first Room is mine and we ride our stick ponies into the barn....We learn how to take care of our ponies, ride them and feed them. We finish our time with some square dancing! I love the song "ride that Pony" by Dr. Jean. The next room we have a camp fire, sing campfire songs, roast marshmallows, and make s'mores! The third room we enter the dairy farm. We learn how to milk a cow, and rope a steer! The final area we go "out on the range" for some field games. Sack races, pony races, and pin the badge on the cowboy! Here are some pictures of last year....will add some from this year after the event. You can pick up our great western unit HERE!
