It’s a Small World

This week we are celebrating diversity. Today, we learned about Mexico. We had Huevos Rancheros for breakfast (this did not go over so well) and Tacos for lunch. We listened to the Mexican Hat dance and watched 1st graders perform the dance on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvRRvMw9-fg. We read the book Whoever You Are by Mem Fox this book talks about how we may all look different on the outside but on the inside we are all the same. At circle time we looked at a brown and white egg and talked about how they looked different, we then cracked them open and discovered they look the same on the inside. We also talked a little about the Day of the Dead and looked at pictures of sugar skulls at the tables we created our own sugar skull masks. The sun is something they use a lot in their art http://www.inside-mexico.com/sun.htm. At the easel we posted some of the images of sun art. We also welcomed a new friend today!
