San Patricio


Mi clase (y yo) aprendimos algunas cosas nuevas este día de San Patricio. Como por ejemplo,  el verdadero significado del trébol durante esta celebración. Inteligente, San Patricio.

1. San Patricio es originario de Gran Bretaña, no Irlanda.

2. El color verde representa los campos de Irlanda.

3. San Patricio usó el trébol para explicar la Santísima Trinidad a los paganos: Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo; conforman un solo Dios. 

4. Cuenta la leyenda  que los duendes o Leprechauns le temían a San Patricio. Ellos no querían que los nuevos cristianos rezaran o practicaran su nueva fe, entonces hacían sus travesuras. Pero San Patricio se encargó de echarlos y sacarlos de donde estuvieran para que dejaran tranquilos a los nuevos creyentes.
Luego de aprender esto, mi clase se divirtió creando un trébol de tres hojas, una corona y un títere de San Patricio. Todo quedó estupendo en la puerta de nuestra clase.

Our theme for #DiverseKidLit in March is the Changing Seasons. Please consider sharing diverse books and resources that support love and families. (As always, the theme is only a suggestion. Diverse posts on alternate topics are always welcome.)

What Is #DiverseKidLit?

Diverse Children's Books is a book-sharing meme designed to promote the reading and writing of children's books that feature diverse characters. This community embraces all kinds of diversity including (and certainly not limited to) diverse, inclusive, multicultural, and global books for children of all backgrounds. We encourage everyone who shares to support this blogging community by visiting and leaving comments for at least three others. Please also consider following the hosts on at least one of their social media outlets. Spread the word using #diversekidlit and/or adding our button to your site and your diverse posts.
