Santos que hicieron historia


Halloween no significa nada en sí, sino que es más bien una contracción de "All Hallows Eve" en inglés, que quiere decir "Víspera de Todos los Santos". 
Para celebrar este día, he recopilado algunas series y películas de algunos de mis santos favoritos. Las películas están dirigidas para la familia y siempre con la supervisión y guía de los adultos, ¡qué disfruten! 

Padre Hurtado
El padre Alberto Hurtado fue el primer sacerdote chileno quien se hizo conocido por la compasión que sintió por los niños pobres de Chile en la década del 40.  Su labor fue tan importante que hasta hoy en día existe El Hogar de Cristo, organización que esta dedicada a la ayuda y apoyo de los chilenos más necesitados. Su santuario se encuentra en Santiago, Chile. 


El Padre Pio
El Padre Pío fue un fraile capuchino, conocido por sus estigmas, bilocación y muchos testimonios de milagros. Esta es una de mis películas preferidas, no tan solo por la calidad de la película, sino que también por la cercanía a la vida real del Padre Pío.  


Para aprender más de los santos, tengo estos títeres de mi tienda TPT para usar en la casa o en la escuela. 


Papa Juan Pablo II
Esta es mi próxima película para disfrutar en casa el Día de Todos los Santos. Todos sabemos que Juan Pablo II fue un papa que dejo un vacío muy grande con su partida, no tan solo por su pontificado, si no que también por su vida ejemplar. 




Santa Teresa de Los Andes
Santa Teresa de los Andes fue una carmelita descalza  y la primera  Santa chilena. Murió a los 20 años, y por eso se le llama la Santa de los jóvenes. Su santuario esta ubicado  en la ciudad de Los Andes, Chile. Esta película muestra su vida antes de entrar al convento hasta el final de sus días. Su vida es un ejemplo de santidad. 



Podría agregar más santos a esta lista, pero no terminaría nunca. Cada santo tiene una historia y vida relevante. Recientemente se han agregado siete santos más a la iglesia católica, el Papa Paul VI, Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romero Galdámez y la primera santa boliviana Nazaria Ignacia de Santa Teresa de Jesús March Mesa, entre otros.

Day of the Dead series | Multicultural Kid Blogs
Multicultural Kid Blogs is proud to be hosting another blog hop for Day of the Dead! (Don't miss our series from last year, 2017, and 2016!) Be sure to visit all the posts below for great ideas on sharing Day of the Dead with kids:


For the Love of Chile, Poh!




Este año, mi sala de clases esta dedicada a Chile, así es que mis estudiantes no pueden confundir la bandera de Texas con la bandera de mi país de origen. 
Para este 18 de septiembre, que es el día de la independencia de Chile, estuve buscando herramientas para usar con mis estudiantes, pero no pude encontrar mucho. Así es que decidí crear mi propio producto TPT.


No puedo decir que los dibujos son míos, pues necesité la ayuda de Toya Studios quien es una experta en dibujos y caricaturas. 
Mi objetivo fue enseñar algunas cosas básicas  y también los emblemas nacionales más importantes, como el escudo, la bandera y el himno nacional. 




Luego de una presentación de Chile, mis estudiantes trabajaron en las coronas y títeres representativos, como el huaso y huasa Chilena.  Las coronas tienen frases sacadas directamente del himno nacional de Chile. Como por ejemplo: Puro Chile es tu cielo azulado o ¡Viva Chile!





     


Una de las razones por la cual el título de esta entrada tiene "Poh" al final, es porque el español de Chile está lleno de modismos. La mayoría de las oraciones en el buen chileno, siempre terminan con "poh", que es una abreviación de "pues". Es tanta la cantidad de "slag" o "modismos" de los chilenismos, que se han escrito libros reuniéndolos todos y así hacer más fácil la vida del extranjero. Si comprendes el español chileno, entonces puedes comprender cualquier español de otro país. 


Algunos ejemplos son:


altiro: ahora
bajoneado/a: triste
colación: merienda
fome: aburrido
guata: barriga/panza
bakán: chévere, cool
cachay: entiendes
mina/o: chico/a
pololo: novio/a

Podría seguir escribiendo, pero son tantos que es mejor que te compres uno de los libros, o vayas a Chile para experimentarlos personalmente.

The most-clicked post from the previous #diversekidlit was Myra's version of the linkup including her review of the absolutely charming Worm Loves Worm! (I waited in line at NCTE a few years back to get an advanced copy of this picture book - such a great way to share with kids about how love is love is love.) Thanks, Myra!

Yumy's Extraordinary Collection






Yumy's Extraordinary Collection is a great story to start out the conversation about family traditions and heritage. 
I like how the author gives some personal background before telling the end of the story. The reader is engaged into the book until the very end. The pages tell us about a valuable and meaningful tradition passed over generations.  Yummy is a happy little girl who is surrounded by many different types of serious collectors in her family. The collections become part of the family  and Yumy is interested being part of it in a very, very special way. 
I like how the drawings and characters represent identity, culture and history. The colors are bright and the writing is easy to follow. The reader can easily make connections with his/her personal life and even start a new hobby! 

Multicultural Children’s Book Day 2017 (1/27/18) is in its 5th year and was founded by Valarie Budayr from Jump Into A Book and Mia Wenjen from PragmaticMom. Our mission is to raise awareness of the ongoing need to include kids’ books that celebrate diversity in home and school bookshelves while also working diligently to get more of these types of books into the hands of young readers, parents and educators.
