Libros de Niños
I created a book from A to Z with sentences and pictures on each page for all the letters in the alphabet. My book is going to be sent to Nicaragua for children who are now learning how to read. Each student raised $15 to use to ship the printed versions.
Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a Mexican holiday that is usually celebrated throughout Mexico. They believe that the doors of heaven open at midnight on October 31st and the spirits reunite with their families for exactly 24 hours. Then, on November 2 the spirits enjoy the festivities. A tradition that they have with this holiday is creating sugar sculls.
For my project I decided to celebrate my dog Bow. I chose him because he was a big part of my life and I loved him very much and he deserved to have his life celebrated. My altar had candles all around it and a painting of bow as the center piece, below his picture I had the description of him. On my altar I also had my sugar scull that I made and also the scull flags that we made out of paper, it also had some flowers that we made during class to go with my description.
I think that I learned a lot throughout this project I didn't ever know a lot about Dia de los Muertos, and now I know so much more!
