Old-fashioned cowboy, country, and folk songs are engaging, challenging, and most of all, FUN! My students LOVE practicing these and they give my room a glimpse into the past.
Included are twelve passages in both color and black and white, flash cards, and a data tracker for student use. The color copies are great for use at a fluency center during your literacy block or Reader's Workshop. The black and white copies can be used during direct instruction with whole group or small group. They also make great hand-outs for extra fluency practice anytime. Use this packet for enrichment, cross-curricular lessons, or to practice for those DIBELs tests!
All songs are authentic cowboy and country songs from America's past. Most are over a hundred years old! I had lots of fun researching them and hope you'll be able to share them with your students!
