Little Red Cowboy Hat

We are working on character analysis. We are focusing on using the text to learn about what the character is like on the inside. We read Little Red Cowboy Hat and brainstormed a list of character traits for her.

You can find a copy of the hat pattern for free here.

My dissertation is on all of the ways we gender young children in the classroom so we have started looking at ways the story might change if the character was the opposite sex, talking about characters that are not well established as either a boy or a girl, and working to undo all of the stereotypes that we have learned that tell us the "right" way to be a boy or girl.
