Our English class has been working so hard. Last we we focused on learning clothing vocabulary, the week before was colors, this week we decided to introduce body parts and have a little Cinco de Mayo party. I really know nothing about Cinco de Mayo, or Mexico, despite living on it’s border for a year, (I could have facebooked my friend Lynne, but I only just right now thought of that). So, this is what we pulled together:
Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes – only faster, and faster, and faster and faster!!!
Pin the tail on the Donkey – body parts of a donkey, and hey, they have donkeys in Mexico, right? I found an excellent free resource for a printable pin the tail on the donkey. You can get it HERE
Balloon Between the Knees Race – We all know where our knees are now! And didn’t the balloon originate in Mexico? No?
Pinata!! – For sure this one is Mexican!! We had no where to hang it, and no adult was brave enough to hold it up, even from a long stick, so we put it on the ground. Sortof pinata cricket.
It was finally whacked into the bushes where it exploded, candy everywhere!!!
After that party, we headed over to our neighbor’s first birthday party!!
