In the United States September 15th-October 15th is Hispanic Heritage Month. It is a time to remember the cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
We encourage our families to read and engage with their children through this month long celebration! Below are some read alouds and activities for you to do as a family. After your child reads a book in honor of Hispanic Heritage month, they can cut and paste the the book into their passport!
