Fabulous Freebies: Cinco de Mayo!
Today is Cinco de Mayo! In honor of this fun holiday, here are some fabulous freebies you can use in your classroom this week to help celebrate Cinco de Mayo & Mexican culture. I have found in my classroom that many students love to celebrate the holidays of various cultures around the world.

Kaboose has more than ten easy craft ideas for Cinco de Mayo. Most can be made with simple materials that are available in most classrooms. Some of the crafts are sound making and could be incorporated into a music lesson!
