Bulletin Boards

Every month we have to change our BB, and they have to be seasonal. Most of mine have been inspired by the incredible ladies from PT. I have also found some in pinterest and others by surfing the net. Here is part of my collection. Enjoy!!!!!

     We try to teach our kids as much as we can about the culture from the country they are acquiring their second language. But we do it in a very fun way. We are really used to celebrate Thanksgiving every year, of course for us is not a holiday so we have to go to school.
     Since the beginning of November we start talking about the Pilgrims, Native Americans, and their history. This year we decided to teach the history through poems so we picked one for each class and they practice fluency and intonation while rehearsing it, it was a win-win situation. We loved the final result and the kiddos had a great time wearing their costumes, too.

Our Revolution Day!!!!!

In Mexico we celebrate our Revolution Day on November 20. In Mexico City there's always a huge parade, there are also lots of cheerlading squads and our famous athlete figures parade too, it's one of our most important national holidays and we celebrate it big time!!!!!
Of course in our schools we try to make something similar. We had to rehearse and rehearse until everything runs smoothly, you know with kids is almost impossible ; ) Nevertheless this year I had tons of fun with my kids. I just love them, they did an incredible job, I was really proud of them!!!!
