Second Graders Celebrate Latin Heritage Month

I want my students to be passionate about Spanish, and to realize that we are all citizens of the world.

As part of their studies in Spanish class during Latin Heritage month, Sra. Costales’ second graders enjoyed learning una morenada, a traditional Bolivian dance, called La Mariposa.  Sra Costales explains:

“In Second Grade we have been studying Bolivia, a country with a rich culture and history.  La Mariposa (The Butterfly) is an old folkloric song and la morenada is the dance tradition.  It is like the flight of a butterfly starting its circular flight and this ties into Second Grade’s study of butterflies at the start of the year.

The children love it, they love the music and the dance and learned it so quickly.    

We began our celebration of Latin Heritage month by celebrating International Peace Day, and learning about Cesar Chavez, a Mexican-American who worked so hard for justice and helped to establish important rights for farm workers in this country.  Without justice, we cannot have peace. 

"I want for them to be passionate about Spanish, and to realize that we are all citizens of the world.”  

-Anita Costales

Vengan a cantar la morenada que empieza a sonar.
Como el vuelo de una mariposa vamos todos a bailar.

Con las manos, 
Con los pies,
La morenada.
La 
morenada.
