If you didn't already know but we're in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15) and by the way if you wondering what events happen each month of the year click here for the National Educational and Health Awareness dates for 2013-2014. My school is a magnet Spanish immersion school so the students are very knowledgeable about Spanish language and culture. Here are a few things I did to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month:
-Made a bulletin board of famous Hispanics (the banner is from Vistaprint) for display on the main hall (right outside my office). I typed the names in Word and printed a picture of each person (using Google images) also one of the Spanish teachers let me borrow her poster set of famous Hispanics which are also mixed in with the pictures that I printed (these can be found at any teacher supply store).
-Made Daily Hispanic Heritage Month Facts to be shown on our school's TV news show. The facts are also shown during the day in the daily announcements. I used PowerPoint to create this.
|Fact shown on our school news.|
-Made a book display showcasing books written by Hispanic authors or had a character that was Hispanic (the librarian helped me with this, she's awesome).
Each of these things was super easy to do and made a positive impact on our month long celebration.
