Here is a Cinco de Mayo Writing Craftivity made special for my Dual Immersion Spanish teacher friends!
*Pattern pieces for a girl or boy in B&W and color (head with sombrero, hands, 2 poncho styles, and accessories)
*A blank page and a lined page for illustrations, additional writing, or a free write
*3 Writing prompts in English and Spanish covering the 3 Common Core writing types:
INFORMATIVE: We celebrate Cinco de Mayo because...
OPINION: I like Cinco de Mayo because...
NARRATIVE: We celebrate Cinco de Mayo by...
*Print out the pattern pieces in B&W on cardstock or construction paper and have the kids color them in. For a teacher sample, print the pieces in color on cardstock.
*For the poncho, print the pattern on bright colored paper such as yellow, green, or red and have your kiddos cut out different colored stripes of construction paper to glue on top or use crayons or oil pastels to add stripes or patterns. A striped pattern is included if you just want your kids to color them in. At the bottom, cut on the dotted lines to make the fringe.
*Print out the writing prompts you would like to use in English or in Spanish.
*Staple the writing to the back of the poncho. Glue the head and hands onto the poncho. Kids can choose to add an accessory (mustache, flower, or maraca).
Feliz Cindo de Mayo!
