This week, we started our study of Christmas celebrations around the world. One of the countries we learned about was Mexico. We read The Legend of the Poinsettia and learned about Las Posadas. We made paper poinsettias to help us remember what we learned. We also read the book Too Many Tamales and ate homemade tamales made by Natalie's grandmother. After eating tamales, we made a real-object graph to show who liked the tamales and who did not. Most of us loved the tamales and wished we could have eaten more!
