Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated during September 15 – October 15 every year. That’s thirty days to learn about thirty notable Hispanic figures during this month!
I have a confession to make! Every year, around this time I say to myself that this month we’re going to dedicate some of our Spanish homeschool to learn about Hispanic Americans, and their contributions.
Guess what? The year comes and goes, and nada! So this year, I’m prepared and ready to tackle this on.
I’ve gathered some on-line resources, such as biography, trading cards, YouTube/Vimeo videos, coloring pages, book recommendations, activity sheets and even some lesson plans.* I’ve compiled all of this in one easy calendar that you can download and print, and I’ve also created a clickable links doc that you can save to your computer or print.
On each day, I’ve committed to teach my child about one person in this list:
September 15 – Celia Cruz/Arts
September 16 – Roberto Clemente/Sports
September 17 – Jaime Escalante/Science
September 18 – Ileana Ros-Lehtinen/Politics
September 19 – Fernando Bujones/Arts
September 20 -Edward James Olmos/Arts
September 21 – Mario Molina/Science
September 22 – Cesar Chavez/Politics
September 23 – Rita Moreno/Arts
September 24 – Nancy Lopez/Sports

October 6 – Crystl Bustos/Sports
October 7 – Martha E. Bernal/Science

October 11 – Luis Walter Alvarez/Science
October 12 – Salvador Dali/Arts
October 13 – Carlos Santana/Arts
October 14 – Frida Kahlo/Arts

I want to make learning fun! So I’ll just pick and choose what resource I want to use in our homeschool. I’ll be printing some coloring pages to make a coloring book, and using the trading cards as well. There are some fun videos to watch, too!
Hopefully with my calendar in hand we can learn about one Hispanic American during this month of celebration!
