Learning about Hispanic Heritage

Learning about Hispanic Heritage
Posted on 09/30/2019
SpanishThis month, A1 students are celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15) to recognize and celebrate the many contributions, diverse cultures, and extensive histories of the American Latino community. They have learned about Hispanic American artists such as Esquivel and read sweet stories about families working together to achieve a goal, such as Tia Isa Wants A Car by Meg Medina.
One of our classroom paraprofessionals, Ms. Migdalia, taught our students a Puerto Rican nursery rhyme named La Linda Manita/The Lovely, Tiny Hand. They quickly mastered this sweet song and the finger movements that go along with it as they practiced their Spanish. The students used their fine motor skills to outline their hands, used their wonderful voices to practice singing La Linda Manita, and together created a friendship string with their hands' cutouts.

If you hear them singing in Spanish and twirling their hands as you walk past them in the hallways, you will surely know that they are singing about their lovely, tiny hands!
