Clip to ScrapBook #4

When I taught sixth grade, I did a figurative language unit. An issue of intermediate Mailbox had a wanted poster master. I copied it on tan paper and then we crumpled it up to make it look old. I took pictures of each kid and then they glued their picture on it. The students wrote similies and metaphors about themselves on the poster.
You could create a bulletin board title like:
"Wanted: Postive Third Graders"
"Wanted: Positive Behaviors"

Also, Carl's Corner has a lot of stationary related to this theme.

I would also find cowboy/cowgirl books that you could introduce the students to. Gail Gibbons has a book called Yippee Yay! that introduces students to the western theme. It would be a great book to start your year and theme. My third graders liked the story.
