Giddy Up Partner!

It was western day at St. Mary's.I didnt not only have fun doing crafts and playing games with the pre-k, but the Cortland students also added a little treat of dancing! We got to make horses, by tracing our foot to make the head, adding a some googlie eyes, and string for the hair. We then headed over to the gym and played some cowboy and cowgirl games. My favorite part was dressing the part wearing a flannel shirt and a nice bandana. It really got everyone into the western theme and gave the kids an idea of what we were trying to accomplish with our cowboy and cowgirl looks. The little kids seemed to get into all of the games because we were dressed up and into ourselves. The kindergarten crew got to play some fun games while practicing their leap,jump, and slide. It all came together though when we did Cotton Eyed Joe at the end. Everyone got loose and did the dance and we added the nice touch of YEEHAW! at the end. All in all it was a great success at St. Mary's.
