Students learned about Mexican Independence day and the causes and effects it had in our country.
The main objectives during the last week was for students to build Mexican Identity throught investigating what the Mexican Symbols meant and explaining their classmates the meaning of each one, and Introducing students to the curious and amazing Mexican Culture such as festivities, dances and clothing developing their speaking abilities having different debates in the classroom.
Both objectives were achieved and students demonstrated it during the reunion we had las Monday, September 15th.

I'm Miss Thais, I just finished a degree in pedagogy.
I've been an English teacher for 3 years.
One of the reasons of being a teacher is the passion I live with every day I see my children learn something new, I want to paste the solar system at the back of their hands, so they have to learn the entire universe before they say "Oh I know that like the back of my hand." I want them to look at the world through the underside of a glass bottom boat, to look through a microscope at the galaxies that exist in the pin point of a human mind. I want them to walk through life with their arms widely open, and yes, this means they may catch all the miseries and hurt, but it also means that when beautiful amazing things fall from the sky, they are ready to catch them. I want them to rediscover wonder through knowledge, I want them to be learners and to be teachers; and I mostly want them to enjoy knowledge.
I'll be part of 4th and 5th grade this year to help them achive their personal and scholar goals.
