PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

On April 30, the people of Mexico celebrate Children's Day by singing a song while enjoying a chocolate drink at breakfast. The chocolate drink is stirred and a song is sang called "Chocolate". Both my English and Spanish speaking students loved this lesson today!

Each student will construct a colorful cube that had the history in English on one side, a lovely love poem for a child in Spanish and in English, and on another face will be hot glued a photo of each child. One of the cube corners is left unglued so the child could slip in a little ziplock bag of chocolate powder drink mix by Quick. Their instructions are to go home and sing "what they remember" of the simple song "Chocolate" by Jose Luis Orozco, while doing the motions that go along with the song (mixing their chocolate milk). The students are always so excited to go home and tell their parents about this fun tradition!

Copy the template on colorful cover stock paper. The template can either be cut out by the teacher or the child. Kinder bilingual students can do this April craft themselves with teacher modeling. I do it every year. Have them glue the first two flaps, and you can assist them with a glue gun with the rest. Remember to buy your large can of chocolate Quick and have snack size Ziplocks on hand.

It's a fun activity that celebrates the Mexican culture and brings cultural pride into your bilingual Texas classroom. It will surely put smiles on your Spanish speakers faces!
