[room 209m] week ten latino literature

October 27, 2016


This past week, we’ve been ending our study of Latino Heritage Month. I wish I could show you our video that we presented at our school’s Latino Heritage Month celebration, but alas I cannot (legal rights and stuff, you know). Anyway, I can still share with you some things.

The theme for our school’s celebration this year was “Rise Up, Speak Up!” In my class, we read a total of 9 great books that are somehow related to Latino Heritage Month. We learned that the more we read, the more we know, which allows up to rise up and speak up! Here’s a list of all the books we read (from left to right, books below). Without even meaning to, we ended up reading a lot of books by authors Pat Mora Arthur Dorros, both of which are great authors. You think we could maybe get them to visit our school?!?

I Pledge Allegiance by Pat Mora
What Can You Do with a Paleta by Carmen Tafolla
The Rainbow Tulip by Pat Mora
Papá and Me by Arthur Dorros
Mamá and Me by Arthur Dorros
Abuelo by Arthus Dorros
Pablo’s Tree by Pat Mora
Round Is a Tortilla by Roseanne Thong
P is for Piñata by Tony Johnston
