Cinco De Mayo Festivities, Monthly $25 TpT Gift Card Giveaway, and BIG TpT sale!

Today was an amazing day of learning as we celebrated learning - Cinco de Mayo style!   I had already shared a few things we had done last week including measurement poke cards and sombreros. Here are a few more things we did today to honor Mexican culture:

We made pinata bags to hold some goodies from our afternoon fiesta. Many of the students brought some yummy Mexican foods and candies to share with the class.  (Of course I forgot to take pics as I was dishing up the goodies)!  Our overwhelming favorite thing was the homemade horchata made by one of the moms - yummy!

Before the party we did a fun little Reader's Theater from Deb Hanson.

We learned lots of interesting facts - Did you know that Mexico City is sinking?  Or that the biggest Cinco de Mayo celebration is in Los Angeles? Or that they have a chihuahua contest in Arizona on Cinco de Mayo?

We also used some of the activities in Teach from the HeART's Cinco de Mayo Crafts and Printables Pack

  1. I so wish we would've had time to do some Cinco De Mayo activities this year in my room. We've had something on the calendar each day since testing ended and I'm scrambling to get everything in. I'm sure the Mexican food would've been a HUGE hit in my class and in my belly of course! Lol!
