Deep in the Heart of Texas Bloh Hop

Welcome to the "Deep in the Heart of Texas" blog hop!  Over 40 Texas teacher bloggers have joined together to share what we love about our state as well as ideas and freebies that we love.  You will also have the opportunity to enter to win TpT products and/or TpT gift certificates by entering using the rafflecopters included in each post.  Down at the bottom, you will see all of the blogs participating in the hop.  Just click and you will be taken to their posts.  We hope you love what you find.  Happy Valentine's Day!

I am Mynda Rivera from Forney. This is my 10th year teaching. I have taught PK, K, 1st & 2nd. Currently I am teaching Kindergarten Bilingual and I love it! I am also a mom and wife. I am married to a wonderful man who also teaches. We have two beautiful children-- a 6-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl. 

Forney, known as the "Antique Capital of Texas" and the home of the Jackrabbits, is a small town east of Dallas. I love this town because it's has all the things you need from a big city without loosing the country style.

Every Spring I take this picture in the same field, which it's just minutes from my house!

I would like to share with you one of my favorites activities in English & Spanish that you can use when you're teaching about Texas. I love when my students create their own projects and illustrate what they have learned! This activities let them do it without a doubt!

My students can describe and illustrate the Texas symbols while creating a cute cowboy or cowgirl.

They can also create a Texas Book with all the state symbols illustrated with different materials ranging from tissue paper to watercolors.

These activities will be on sale until Sunday, February 15, 2015. I would appreciate your feedback! :)

I also want to share this freebie that will work perfectly with the activity above.

Your students will love to write about Stephen Austin and make this cute craft!

You can find this freebie {HERE}.
