Since I missed posting about what the kids were working on before Christmas, I wanted to give a glimpse of what they worked on for Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead. This holiday, contrary to common belief, is actually a very happy and lively celebration that is held at the beginning of November. For three days, people privately and together in community show many demonstrations of honoring their loved ones who have passed on. St. John’s students were able to learn about this cultural celebration and created some artwork to capture different aspects of Dia de los Muertos.
Starting out the third quarter, K-3 grades have been learning the body parts and the 4-6 grades briefly reviewed them as well. They had a lot of fun playing games, singing songs, and creating “MONSTRUOS”!!! Take a look!
