Overview


From "Oh, Susanna" to "Buffalo Gals," children will sing and learn about the legendary Wild West. The enclosed CD features 26 songs-old favorites and originals-and the book offers more than 300 activities that teach children about cowboys, cowgirls, the rodeo, and life on the prairie.

Every song has:
•Literacy Links to teach comprehension skills, letter knowledge, and phonemic awareness
•Curriculum Connections to integrate the content of the song with curriculum areas such as math, art, sand and water play, science, outdoor play, field trips, and discovery
•a "Did You Know?" section with fun and interesting facts related to the song
•a vocabulary list to enhance children's language skills
•theme connections
