A Cowboy Dresses Himself with Care
A Cowboy Dresses Himself with Care.
He starts with long, red ______(UNDERWEAR).
Out in the desert, you don't want to get hurt,
So the cowboy wears a strong wool ______(SHIRT).
Deserts and prairies are the cowboy's scenes;
To protect his legs, he wears sturdy blue______(JEANS).
The cowboy bent, and ran, and knelt.
To keep his pants up, he wore a leather ______(BELT).
The coyote howls, the old owl hoots.
On his feet, he wears leather ______(BOOTS).
It isn't yellow, so it's not a banana;
Around his neck, he wears a soft ______(BANDANA).
A cowboy is a cowboy, and that is that!
On top of his head, he wore a ten-gallon ______(HAT).
He's all dressed from head to feet,
And now our cowboy can't be beat!

Song and Action Rhyme
She’ll be comin’ round the mountain!
She’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes. She’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes. She’ll be comin’ round the mountain, she’ll be comin’ round the mountain, she’ll be comin’ round the mountain when she comes.
She’ll be riding six white horses when she comes…..
And We’ll all come out to meet her when she comes…..
Action Rhyme: 10 Little Cowboys
10 little cowboys standing in a row. (Stand up straight)
When they see a pretty girl, they bow like so.(hand behind back and bow)
They ride to the left, they ride to the right, (pretend you are on a horse. Gallop one way, then the other)
and then they shut their eyes and they say good night! (Fold arms and pretend to sleep)
Let's Sing a Lullaby of Brave Little Cowboy - Thomas
I couldn't wait to get to my craft, but I had plenty of books ready in case I had an especially attentive crowd. Here are my extra picks:
Clip-Clop - Smee
She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain - Sturges
Craft - Stick Horses
The best part was, I used our jingle bells on hand as 'spurs'! I put a set on each little leg and off we went on a horse parade around the library. It was so fun!! Giddy-up!!
The craft made the whole theme worth it. Usually I do not advocate stuffing together books for the sake of a theme, but horses was a good choice. Now I am thinking up other ideas for the craft. Unicorns anyone?
Thanks for stopping by!
