MES Kindergarten class learns more about Mexico

Mrs. McKinney's kindergarten class learned more about Mexico with a student with family from that area. On Sept 16, Mexico celebrated Independence Day. A visitor came and talked about the Mexican flag and culture. Similarities were drawn to Mexico's independence and that of the United States. Students were able to learn the Mexican hat dance, pull a pinata and enjoy a type of ice pop that is a traditional Mexican treat most popular with children. That week the students enjoyed learning new words in Spanish, especially the body parts we use for our five senses.
