Las Calaveras

1st and 2nd graders have been busy making calaveras! We are learning about an important holiday celebrated in Mexico called Dia de los Muertos. We are making calaveras to help us decorate for the upcoming holiday which begins 31 de octubre through 2 de noviembre. We are also working on learning all the parts of the face in Spanish. Ask a 1st grader what a cabeza is, and ask a 2nd grader what a barbilla is!
Here are examples of our calaveras:
