Dia de Reyes

Last week was King’s Day and we celebrated by making fancy crowns and trying a special King’s bread. This is a major Holiday in Spain and many other Hispanic countries. The Kings come on the eve of King’s Day and they leave presents for the children. It’s like having two Christmases!

Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas! 

In Mexico they celebrate nine days before Christmas a holiday called “Las Posadas.” Every day people go to a different house to have a party and break a star shaped piñata. The students made piñata ornaments and candy bags to celebrate this holiday as well as Christmas!

Los Dias de la Semana

Days of the week

Last week in Pre-school we learned the days of the week in Spanish class. We learned a fun song about the train of the days of the week and we colored a train labeled with the days in Spanish. We also pretende to be a train and walked around the carpet singing the days of the week.

The song goes:

Lunes, martes, miércoles, jueves, viernes, sábado, domingo, choo choo!

*note: In Spanish speaking countries the week starts with Monday and the days are not capitalized. 

Pictured are the Preppers.
