46 - Santa Ana Nichi 3 --Dec 10

Santa Ana Nichi 3
With the kids at school.  This time I have 36 students and am teaching 2nd grade. One day I loved it, then the next, I sat in the room and cried afterwards.  Its great and its hard.
Practicing a Christmas song with the other 2nd grade class
Then on Friday they had a cultural event with the surrounding schools, and sang Christmas songs in Spanish and Masagua (the indigenous language that they speak here)
All of the kids were soooo cute!
We were able to see many different types of traditional dress.
Yae! Angels!
Heading home with their moms, notice how the moms carry their babies on their backs.

Such beautiful, colorful costumes!  Did you get to read the story of the Poinsetta with the kids? I've been reading Christmas stories to my students. I wish they had big Christmas plays like that here more in the public schools!! Te amo, Mamacita
