Some activities I did with my pupils this week:
We made an "ofrenda" (altar) for Scooter, a pupil's snake who passed away last year. We said some sentences about him in Spanish, and wrote a few things on pieces of card which we put on the class display. RIP Scooter!
We decorated Día de los Muertos cookies I had baked the night before. The pupils said the colours and the body parts in Spanish while putting the icing on. (I was walking around in the classroom and I said that if I didn't hear them speak Spanish, I would eat up the cookie straight away!)
We haven't had the time to watch videos this week, but here are two from previous years:
La canción de las calaveras:
El baile de los esqueletos (good to practise telling the time)
And I would watch this award winning Día de los Muertos video in class but it makes me cry!!!
Testing my cookie cutters with my kids last week.
