Nations Day

Every year the kids’ school has a big celebration at the end of October for Nations Day. Each class picks a different country to study during the month of October. This year Reagan studied Mexico. The most exciting part for Reagan so far has been learning some spanish words. I would pick her up from school and she would say, “Hola Mama. Are we going to mi casa now?” Or shout “Adios” as I dropped her off at school. She also learned her colors and numbers in Spanish. She was really excited to show off her new skills.

Her class celebrated Nations Day with a Mexican Fiesta and a pinata. They also made several Mexican crafts. Kindergarteners don’t perform a skit for the celebration, but they do get to dress the part and participate in the parade. Here is Reagan adn her bud Ale in the handmade ponchos.
