No Tech tip Tuesday this week because like me, it's on spring break. BUT I am here today to share with you the Texas/Western/Cowboy/Cowgirl unit I created and used with my class last week. It was a really fun week and a great way to send them off on their own Texas adventures for spring break! I have to take a minute to say that I love that I am 31 and still get a spring break. Seriously. It's been an awesome week! Back to business... I like doing this unit at this time because we have Open House the week after spring break, and it's a super unit for creating and displaying work. Scroll down for a few pictures and examples of things we did (as always, let me apologize for the poor quality of my pictures, my iPhone is my only camera) and you can click on the cover to head over to Google Docs and download my mini unit for free! I say "mini unit" but it ended up being 36 pages, so I'm not sure how mini it is, and there are a lot of activities that I didn't snap pictures of (darn!).
We created these cactus pictures on a full sheet on manila paper folded in half. It will serve as their Texas portfolio for Open House next week.
Texas, Texas YEEHAW! Off to enjoy the rest of my spring break!
I'm a first grade teacher in Texas and I LOVE LOVE LOVE my job! I've been teaching since 2005 and I hope I always enjoy it as much as I do now. I have a BA in French from The University of Texas and a M Ed in Elementary Education from Texas State University.
