Orange Room January Blog! (WOM)

Posted on February 8, 2012

Yee-haw! January was a rootin-tootin, cowboy bootin good time!!!

Our unit of study was farm and ranch life. We learned most of the food that we buy is grown or raised on a farm or ranch. Farm machinery was a popular week as well as talking about cowboys and rodeos. We tried our hand a roping a steer head with a lariat and climbed on top of a real western saddle. Every busy cowpoke works up an appetite so we put on our hats and bandanas and at some western grub at lunch time. We enjoyed singing songs like, “I Know a Chicken,” “Grandpa’s Farm,” and tried a few basic square dancing steps. Our last week in January was very exciting when we discussed pets and proper care. We were very entertained by a singing Labrador, a prickly hedge-hog, friendly chickens, snuggly cats, and loving dogs when they stopped by to visit.

We hope February will be just as busy and interesting as we explore health and nutrition. Please remember to bring in a few cans of food or toiletries for our Parker Task Force Food Drive.

Happy February and remember, The Groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter so remember to bundle up your children appropriately!
