Outlaw Day CrAzInEsS


Today, we had outlaw day!  All of my students dressed up in their cowboy get-up and we learned all about outlaw words, cowboys, and even some animals!
Next year, I'm going to do an "outlaw week"! There was just too much fun to squeeze into one day!



I gave each of my students a handkerchief with this little poem on it:



I found these sheriff badges at Walmart for .97 for 4! The best part is, I used them as a management tool. I told them they had to earn their badge with good behavior.


We ate horse feed {shredded wheat (hay) and Cherrios (oats)} and we had rope snacks {licorice}:


Look at these cute boots {it gave me the perfect excuse to bust out my $17.99 boots from Ross}:

And of course we did lots of practice with our Outlaw Words Centers:






Then, we did the silliest square dance.... EVER!  







It was such a FUN day!!!!!!
