Story Time Plan: Giddyup Cowpeople!

September 27, 2013 by Andrea

Super random and only because I had two cowboy books, we did a Cowboy themed storytime! Both Are You a Horse? and Do Cowboys Ride Bikes? were good to skip some spreads to shorten the length. At the end of the books we “wrangled” our cow puppet by wearing a cowboy hat and each kid could throw a hula hoop to lasso the cattle. I also found some weird Woody’s Round Up Club Remix which provided some thumping beats in the background. Parents took lots of cell phone pics at this part.

If You’re Happy and You Know It

The Cowboy’s at the Ranch (Farmer in the Dell)
The cowboy’s at the ranch.
The cowboy’s at the ranch,
Yee-haa the cowboy yells.
The cowboy’s at the ranch.

The cowboy gets a horse…
Neigh snorts the horse today,
The cowboy gets a horse

The cowboy rides the horse…
Yeehaa the cowboy yells..


I’m a Little Cowboy
Tune: I’m a Little Teapot
I’m a little cowboy, here’s my hat.
Here are my spurs,
And here are my chaps.
As soon as I get up,
I work all day.
I get on my horse,
And ride away.
