Mexico

We are working our way south from Canada the rest of the year. The kids learned about US states in one of their co-op classes, so we skipped the United States and moved on to Mexico this week. We started with library books then colored the flag and map.
I learned to count in Spanish when I was a kid from a song on Sesame Street, and I still remember the tune.  So I shared that with the kids.  We watched Mariachi and learned a couple of songs to sing: M-E-X-I-C-O and Fray Felipe.  (Fray?)
For lunch we had bean soup and rice pudding.
Then the kids made Ojos de Dios.  I let them use little balls of singles that I had leftover from plying.  They really enjoyed making these and 2 days later, Rohan is sitting on the couch right now making more.
