¡Fabulous Fiesta!

Last week, Mrs. Ranney's class was reading Pepita Talks Twice. In that post, the class learned Spanish!

As part of the week's festivities, they got together with Mrs. Yollis' class and learned the Mexican Hat Dance! Take a look!


Later that day, we enjoyed tasty tortilla chips and salsa, as well as tantalizing tacos!
What a special treat!

  2. Dear Mrs. Ranney and Class,

    I had a marvelous time learning the Mexican Hat Dance! I even taught my family! After we played the song over and over again, my bird was chirping the tune!
