    We went to a mariachi celebration last night to celebrate el grito mexicano and plan to do a lot of reading this month.

  10. My husband and I are from two different regions in the U.S., live in a third, and our daughter is of a different race and heritage than either of us. We try to read books, study different cultures and countries (we homeschool), eat a variety of foods, choose books with main characters from various heritages, practice Spanish, which is commonly spoken where we live, and embrace experiences representing the variety of cultures in the various regions where we have family. We even talk about the country where our dog’s breed originated.

  11. I celebrate Hispanic Heritage month all year long! I am blessed to teach kindergarten in a dual language Spanish classroom. I have been sharing the love of language, culture and Hispanic heritage through stories, food and hands-on experiences through crafts for twelve years! I feel blessed to have such a great job! My students and their families never forget their first adventure in education when they begin their journey in becoming bilingual, bi-literate and bicultural. I take great pride in being Latina and having the opportunity to share my culture with others. Especially my students.

  12. We celebrate our Hispanic Culture all year long. We are very lucky to be part of a Spanish Literacy and Culture project called “En Nuestra Lengua”, where bilingual kids k-4 learn more about our hispanic culture, read in Spanish, learn math and science in Spanish. We are supported in great part by our community, parents and sponsors who are committed to our latino heritage and pass it to the kids.

  13. We celebrate our children’s heritage (Hispanic descent) through food, crafts, and books. We try to make them aware of other cultures by going about it the same way. I feel it’s so important to know others cultures and history especially living in a small community. Thank you for the entry; amazing prizes!

  14. We celebrate our Hispanic Heritage through music, family and fun. This year our kids are finally old enough to help with our Dia de los Muertos alter.

  15. In our house we are making carne asada tacos and guacamoli and celebrating Dias de la Muertos with Vietnamese style. We are a very mixed house hold.

  16. This year I was able to celebrate Hispanic Heritage with my 2 year old by watching her favorite Disney Jr. shows in spanish. I discovered the lang button on the remote control! We are also working on expanding G’s spanish library. We recently purchased Frida by Jonah Winter. I have my heart set on getting La Cenicienta by Gabriela Mistral next. When I previewed the book on you tube, I fell in love. I am also interested in the Chimoc Novels by los hermanos Paz. I love that the books come with such fun songs. Unfortunately they are not available in the U.S. :( I am going to have to ask for a special encargo from some peruvian friends. I also have dressed “G” in her Peruvian dresses we picked up on our last visit a lot more. They are so gorgeous and colorful and she always gets compliments! Oh, I almost forgot…. We also found Yola Polastry on itunes and added some of her songs to G’s playlist. Her favorite one by far is the telefonito song.

  17. We celebrate Hispanic Heritage month by reading about Latino cultures, watching films (we went and saw “Instructions not Included,” last week) and by picking an art project from Costa Rica, where my daughter’s paternal family lives. We did this one: http://alldonemonkey.com/2013/09/15/lantern-craft-and-the-faroles-of-costa-rica-hispanic-heritage-month-blog-hop-and-giveaway/ and learned about this giveaway there. We also bought our tickets to Costa Rica for a visit!

  18. Thank you for offering a giveaway! My family has been learning of our heritage beginning with the PBS documentary Latino Americans shown in September. We’ve taken a few events and talk about how it effected their great-grandmother, grandmother & myself.
    We also particpted in a Dia de Los Muertos sugar skull workshop; lots of fun!

  19. I am so excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with my students during my first year of teaching. I plan to have them choose activities that interest them and reflect on connections between history, culture, and language. ¡Gracias!
