By Spanish Classroom 1418 Views No comments

Angela PadronNow that January is here, most people are done celebrating the holidays. Well, not Hispanic families. One seasonal holiday remains - El Día de Los Reyes Magos, or Three Kings Day. 

 Three Kings Day is celebrated on January 6, twelve days after Christmas, the day of Jesus’s birth. It recognizes the day that the Three Wise Men arrived in Bethlehem bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the baby Jesus. The three wise men traveled a long distance and were drawn guided by the North Star, which shone bright in the night sky.

Dec 22 Winter Break Brain Exercises - Resources for your Spanish Classroom

Winter break is a time for students to enjoy the holidays with their families, but once the presents are opened and played with and all the great food has been eaten, what will kids do? Sit on the couch and watch TV or play video games all day? Text on their cell phones to friends from dusk until dawn?

 Leave the decision up to the students and the answer is yes! But, time off for a long period of time can lead to students forgetting valuable information they’ve learned over the last few weeks and months. However, the last thing students want to do, though, on any long break is homework. The moans and groans heard as winter break packets are passed out can be heard from miles around!
