New "Peanuts" Playlists

Did you know that "Peanuts" is 70 YEARS OLD this year?!? How crazy is that? 

October marks the 70th anniversary of Charles Schulz’ iconic “Charlie Brown” comic strip. 

Part of what makes Charlie Brown and “Peanuts” so special are the songs associated their television specials of the 1960s and '70s. Vince Guaraldi and his trio performed songs for the Peanuts TV shows which have delighted generations of people. 

And I recently discovered ANOTHER reason to love this show: José Cuauhtémoc "Bill" Meléndez.
He was a Mexican–American character animator, voice actor, film director and producer known for his cartoons, including Peanuts. AND Bill provided the voices of Snoopy and Woodstock. 💗💗

If you are a Snoopy-loving family, the way mine is, then you'll be excited to know that to celebrate the anniversary of “Peanuts,” Craft Recordings has released several collectible albums, music videos, and playlists. 

Earlier this month, a new animated video of “The Great Pumpkin Waltz” debuted on the official Vince Guaraldi YouTube channel. You might recognize the Vince Guaraldi Trio song from the party scene in “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” television special. And, a new animated video for the Charlie Brown "Thanksgiving Theme" is coming next month.

Two new playlists are streaming now on your favorite music platform, accessible from these links:
Peanuts' easy listening playlist

Whether you want to be energized or just to chill out, these Charlie Brown classics by the Vince Guaraldi Trio are worth streaming and sharing. They include the "Thanksgiving Theme," "Christmas Time Is Coming," the iconic "Linus and Lucy" theme and many more that will spark happy spots in your hippocampus. ;)

Here's a sample - "Linus and Lucy" - from the YouTube playlist. Enjoy!

Activities for Kids Celebrating Halloween at Home

Activities for kids celebrating Halloween at home

Will your Halloween be different this year? Where I live, the local government is urging people to stay home and avoid trick-or-treating this year. If you've decided to celebrate Halloween at home this year, here is a list of activities for you to consider and most require materials you have at home or can easily find at your local dollar store or Target. 

What about the TREATS?

Instead of trick-or-treating this year, here are two alternatives:

  1. Buy bags of your favorite Halloween candy at your local grocery store ahead of time. This is a win-win because you aren't stuck with candy no one likes. :)
  2. Start a new tradition and make/bake your own Halloween treats together! Check out this list of recipes:

Freebie: Bilingual Halloween Counting Mats



I made counting mats for my 3yo this past weekend and decided to go ahead and share them with MommyMaestra readers. 

Yesterday, I mentioned the Halloween printables (bilingual) that I have in my TpT store. If you missed that post, take a look because one of my favorites is included: the Halloween Cumulative Tale

Today's freebie is a pack of counting mats with three different designs for counting 1 - 5, and an additional two designs for counting 1 - 10. 

We used orange pompoms to counting (shown above), but you can use anything or even have your kids stamp or draw their own items on the mat. The only problem with using the pompoms is that the static electricity builds up a little and they become attracted to each other which can make it a little hard to keep them in their rows.

Halloween counting mats


We also improvised a little bit and made tiny pumpkin counters using orange beads and some pieces of brown pipe cleaner for a stem...

Halloween counting mats

My 3 yo liked them, but still seemed to prefer the softness of the pompoms. However, BOTH of them were great for developing the small motor skills, namely the pincer grasp. 

Halloween counting mats

Just a reminder and word of caution: NEVER leave your young child unattended with small objects as they can be a choking hazard! If your child tends to put things in their mouth, use larger blocks (if the space allows), minifigures, or edible treats like crackers, cheese squares, goldfish, etc. (I had originally planned to use candy corn with them, but I just could never remember to buy them at the grocery store when I was there.) 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy them! Save them for Halloween if you are assembling activities for your little to do on the holiday.

Bilingual Halloween Printables

Halloween is fast approaching! So I'm dedicating the next two posts to this holiday. This year, Halloween is shaping up to be very different for many of us. So today I want to share a few printables that are easy to do at home. 

Of course, I have a few that are available in both English and Spanish. 

Roll-a-Jack-O'Lantern Activity

Need a simple activity to keep your little one busy, learning math, and let's them develop their creativity? Check out my Roll-a-Jack Activity. Comes with two activities: simple & challenging. Give them a black marker and print the color version of the simple Design Your Own Jack O'Lantern page. Your kids just roll the dice to see what type of face to draw on their pumpkin. Also available in black-and-white so that the kids can color their own. 
The second activity is more challenging. Your kid will need one die, a pencil (or crayons/colored pencils/markers), and drawing paper. Print the key, roll the die, and draw to match the drawing key. You can come up with a new design every time!


Halloween Costume Coloring Book

Boost your Spanish- or English-learner's vocabulary with this bilingual coloring book. The pages show children in their Halloween costumes, so the student will enjoy coloring while learning the words for "bat/murciélago," "mummy/momia," "cowboy/vaquero" and more.

NOTE! This file contains THREE books:
• a bilingual book (English & Spanish)
• an English only (for ESL)
• a Spanish only (for Spanish learners)


Halloween Storybook & Cumulative Tale Lesson

This is my absolute favorite activity, but it is better suited for older children in upper elementary and middle school. This download gives younger children a printable storybook that they can color in. It is the story of a little witch's house. Short and sweet, it focuses on relationships while utilizing mainly nouns and adjectives.

THEN, the file includes an introduction to cumulative tales and provides graphic organizers that guide your children/students through the process of creating their own.

Beautiful Mundo: Secular Spanish Curriculum

The following is a sponsored post with Beautiful Mundo

I cannot express how excited I am about today's post. I love being surprised by new products, especially ones that are designed specifically for homeschoolers. Beautiful Mundo is a secular Spanish-immersion curriculum. And it may be used by both bilingual parents AND monolingual (English) parents who are raising bilingual children.

Name of program: Beautiful Mundo
Target age: 0 - 8+
Amount of materials: Moderate
Price: $88

What I love the most is that it is entirely literature based. When I was looking through the booklist, I discovered that I recognized most of the titles because they are considered Latino children's lit. (Most of them are by Hispanic authors, anyway, with a few translations scattered in.) In fact, I have most of them on my bookshelves. Some of the authors I spied in the list are Alma Flor Ada, Monica Brown, José-Luis Orozco, Lulu Delacre, and many others.

The good thing about this is that I believe most of these are easily found in local libraries, so you don't have to go out and buy all the titles yourself, which would be pricey. You can actually see the booklist for yourself on their website before you purchase the curriculum, which I think it really important. Because you don't want to be disappointed later if you are planning to get most of them from your library and your library doesn't have them. In fact, if you use the Library Extension for Chrome (or Firefox or Edge), any time you look at a book on Amazon, the extension will tell you if that same title is available at your local library (it's a goldmine!).   

Let's get into the curriculum.


Beautiful Mundo is only available as a PDF download. That means that when you make your online purchase, you receive instant access to the files, which you can download to your computer and begin using right away, if you so choose. The other great part is that you can print as many copies as you need (great for families with multiple children).

It all begins with the Parent Guide. It is SO helpful by providing a full background for parents on the goal of the program, the methodology, and details on how to use the curriculum. You'll find the list of books and music that are at the heart of the curriculum, and then you'll find the actual lessons themselves.

There are two pages for each week and each one has a theme or focus. They are carefully laid out with reading, activities, and crafts to complete throughout the week on your own schedule.

I love that the curriculum is so versatile allowing parents with children of different ages the opportunity to use this program. Beautiful Mundo trusts the parents to know their children best and be able to determine when their child is ready to begin the phonics, storytelling, and copywork books. 

Beautiful Mundo


The Phonics Book
gives parents the option to choose print or cursive. This workbook has been edited by native Spanish speakers in Spain and Argentina. Included are directions and notes for parents on teaching Spanish phonics, activities, and a lot of teaching techniques. It incorporates sign language with graphics showing the proper hand positions for each letter of the alphabet. And then the workbook begins by teaching first the vowels, followed by consonants in a thoughtfully chosen order. There are two pages dedicated to each letter with opportunities to practice writing the letter, words and images that begin with the letter, and a letter recognition search. The second page has a section for writing a complete word, as well as a list of words beginning with the letter.

The Storytelling Book is a supplemental resource for older children who are able to draw and write may utilize. It is comprised of simple worksheets that provide space for your child to draw and write (recount) the story you've just read. 

The Copywork Book is another supplemental book and also available in print or cursive. It's designed for older children who are learning to write, there is only one page to print each week to accompany the reading selection. It includes one quote from each book for your child to practice writing. The very back includes Spanish to English translations for parents to reference.

The program also comes with some additional printable materials, mostly flashcards of letters, number dots, shapes, emotions, etc. The letters are available in print or cursive to suit your preference.

Now, I ALWAYS tell people to DOWNLOAD THE SAMPLE PAGES of any curriculum before they purchase it to make sure it is a good fit for their family. And this is no exception. You can find sample pages of the Parent Guide and Phonics Workbook here.

Price-wise, Beautiful Mundo isn't the cheapest, but it also isn't the most expensive curriculum. It's somewhere in the middle. The complete set costs $88, and that price does not include the books. But a lot of work has gone into it and I think parents will love the digital aspect of it that allows them instant access to the download directly after purchasing it.

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Free Día de los Muertos Digital Classroom


In three short weeks, people all across the Americas and beyond will be celebrating Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Teachers have begun to search for resources, and families who are now homeschooling are looking for materials, too. 

So I'm delighted to share this Hispanic Heritage Month virtual classroom

You may remember me sharing a similar resource last month for Hispanic Heritage Month. This new digital site has been created by the same team of educators.

Created by a remarkable group of educators, you can find:

  • information about the culture surrounding the holiday,
  • explanations of the symbolism found in the items of the ofrenda,
  • descriptions on how the holiday is celebrated in 12 countries, 
  • tutorials for crafts, 
  • read aloud books, 
  • music online, 
  • and more.

Once again, most of the YouTube videos may be watched safely without having access to inappropriate content.  

If you're looking for free resources to celebrate Day of the Dead, this should probably be at the top of your list!

And if you are wondering...yes, you can share it with everyone.

Enjoy!

Canticos Bilingual Preschool App

The following is a sponsored post with Canticos. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

One of the main requests I see in our Hispanic and Bilingual Homeschoolers group is for a bilingual curriculum or materials for preschool. Raising bilingual children certainly isn't anything new. But now that so many parents find themselves actively teaching their preschoolers at home, there is a huge demand for bilingual resources. 

So when Canticos reached out and asked me if I'd be interested in reviewing their bilingual preschool app, I said, "¡Sí!" (I have a 3-year-old myself, so I am happy to look for products I can use teach him Spanish.) And I'm delighted that I did.

I should strongly state here, that I don't believe in giving young children access to tablets or online games for long periods of time. In fact, this is the first app my youngest has ever played with. And I only allowed him access after I looked through the entire app myself to make sure it was a) age appropriate, b) divided up into short segments, and c) didn't contain advertising of any sort.

Canticos' Bilingual Preschool App met all of these and more. 

NameCanticos' Bilingual Preschool App
Subject(s): Preschool concepts
Brief Description: An comprehensive app for preschoolers that teaches children many of the basic skills needed for kindergarten prep.
Price: FREE 7-day trial, then $6.99/month or $57.99/year
Language: English or Spanish
Ages: 3 - 5 years
DeviceiOS, Android

Preschool Concepts

The app is a clever compilation of a lot of the videos Canticos has created over the years, plus additional activities to nurture learning and reinforce preschool concepts. It is 100% ad free (yay!). 

When you first set up the app, you are able to choose which language the app will present to your child. However, it's easy to change the language by simply clicking on the speech bubble in the upper right-hand corner.


As you can see in the picture above, there are seven different categories for your child to select:

  1. ¡A jugar!
  2. Aprende
  3. Videos
  4. Música
  5. Stickers
  6. Libros
  7. Arte

¡A jugar! has a simple counting game and an animated video with an English version of the Pollitos song. There appears to be many other games that are locked, but I'm not sure how to access them (they may be for children in the Early Reader/Reader levels). It's possible that they are forthcoming as the app continues to be developed.

Aprende has six activities that focus on teaching las vocales/the vowels, beginning sounds, emotions, simple counting, and rhythm. Burbujas is my favorite because it teaches children to associate letter sounds with specific letters and touch them as they float by. My son love Fiesta de piñata because he has to tap the piñata a certain number of times to break it open and get the candy.

The Videos section is a collection of all the Canticos videos, including Sol solecito, Sana sana, Las mañanitas, and many others.

The Música section is just a fun set of all the traditional songs with no animation, just the audio. This is an awesome part for doing sing-alongs and TPR activities with your student or child, such as dancing, fingerplays, and more.

The Stickers area has a set of four different backgrounds to which your child can drag stickers of the various Canticos characters.

Libros has 18 different stories that your child can either read on her own, or be read to using the Léeme function one of which your child chooses at the beginning of the story. If you choose the latter, then the words light up in a different color as the story is read. I love this function which is so important for children learning to read. The books aren't actually animated like a video, but in some, there is movement of characters on screen. And once the sentence or words on each page is read, your child must tap on the arrow in the bottom of the screen to go forward or backward. Some of the stories offer your child the chance to be sung to, as well.

Finally, there is the Arte section. This one is my son's favorite. It is basically a coloring activity with eight different images. You child chooses one, then selects their tool of choice: a colored pencil (they choose the color) for scribbling, a rainbow pencil which draws lines of rainbow color, a paint brush for broad strokes, and a paint can to simply tap on sections to be filled with color. 

If they make a mistake, they can either select the eraser tool to delete the part that they designate, OR they can click on the trash can in the bottom corner of the page which cleans away all color from the screen leaving behind the original image. Or, they can select the undo arrow to remove their last action, or the redo arrow to bring it back.

The final tool available is the sticker function which provides a series of stickers that your child can select to embellish their coloring page. 



Bonus Materials for Parents

Parent can certainly just hand their children the device with the app and let their kids learn organically and safely. But if you want to maximize the learning potential of this app, then subscribers may want to use the online App Parent Guide. This is a collection of printable activities to offer your child to extend the learning in conjunction with the app. I'm hopeful that as this company grows, they'll include lesson plans in this section to guide parents who may be homeschooling their preschooler.

While I don't recommend using this app as a curriculum replacement (nor do I think that's what the creators intended), I do think it is an incredibly wonderful tool for parents to use as a supplement to their preschool lessons. I can see us using it two or three times a week for 15 - 20 minutes as a reward and a learning tool to reinforce the concepts he's learning.

Día de los Muertos: Libro de actividades preescolares


I am so excited to share that my Day of the Dead: Preschool Activity Book now has a Spanish version! 

Thank you so much to my amiga, Dania Santana, for double-checking some of the translation. She helped get it in shape for publication. 

Last year, I published the English version and it was very popular. But I had a ton of requests for it in Spanish, so I'm happy to be able to offer it to bilingual families.

These 40-page activity books are filled with fun, colorful activities to keep your preschooler learning while having fun.

They include a short description of the holiday at the beginning of the book and then launches into activities that help your children develop their literacy and counting skills. Coloring pages give them an opportunity to strengthen their fine-motor skills, and puzzles and mazes give them an opportunity to work on hand-to-eye coordination. Your kids will identify the beginning sounds of specific words and can also practice writing.

The activities are diverse to engage children at different skill levels. Beginning preschoolers may prefer simpler activities, and older children will enjoy more complex ones.

Whistlefritz: The Spanish Educator's Collection

 Whistlefritz: Spanish Educator's Collection

I'd like to welcome a new MommyMaestra sponsor! I'm sure most of you are already familiar with Whistlefritz, a language-learning program for children in preschool and early elementary. 

Last year, I reviewed their program for homeschoolers. They've actually revamped that version by adding even more fantastic materials to it. The new one is called, The Educator's Spanish Collection, and it comes with:

  • a 277-page Lesson Plan book
  • Memory Matching Cards game
  • LA GRAN COLECCIÓN, boxed set of:
    - 5 videos (DVDs or digital downloads)
    - 5 music albums (CDs or digital downloads) including their new Music CD, ¡BUENOS DÍAS!

What's really great about this program is its multimedia approach. Not only do the lessons provide hands-on learning, but the lessons include videos to enhance vocabulary learning, music to engage children in singing and dancing, and games.

Like the original, the Lesson Plan book is a scaffolding curriculum that contains 40 lessons each of which takes 30 - 40 minutes to complete. The spiral curriculum builds on previous lessons and allows children to master their Spanish by providing them with multiple opportunities to revisit previously taught concepts. 

Some of the lessons are cross-curricular, teaching not only Spanish, but also science, art, and even physical education. (Because most of the focus on preschool concepts, I think this curriculum would work well as a preschool curriculum for Spanish-speaking children.)

Each lesson contains two sections. The first has...

  • a description of each lesson
  • the goal
  • the objective
  • vocabulary
  • materials
  • estimated time to teach
  • The second section is on the activity itself and it has...
  • the focus (and review)
  • teacher input
  • guided practice
  • independent practice
  • the closure
  • and extension activities

Quite a lot of thought has gone into each lesson and I really appreciate the guided practice section because it is thorough and provides the teacher with exact text to help their students.

Although the text is written in English, Spanish text for all speaking scripts is included. But there is also a complete Spanish version available here, making this a good choice for immersion programs and/or homeschoolers.

As I ALWAYS say, download a sample of the program before you buy. And you can download sample plans and watch a video clip here.


One of the new elements of this set is their new album, ¡Buenos Días!. It is so fun and masterfully produced. It is SO RICH in cultural rhythms, including salsa, merengue, flamenco, reggae, and Andean rhythms. I love all the songs, but my absolute favorite is ¿Cómo se llama la llama? (Seriously, it's hilarious.) But the song Sonidos del Flamenco absolutely calls to the española in me. 

Really, every last song is fun and engaging. You can listen to clips of ALL the songs and purchase the CD separately here on their website.

Queen of Tejano Music: Selena

Queen of Tejano Music: Selena

#Parentalfailure

In my household, Selena is having a BIG moment. During a week-long visit with their Corpus Christi cousins this summer, my older two children were introduced to Selena Quintanilla Perez and her music. After watching the movie featuring Jennifer Lopez and visiting the standard Selena sights in Corpus Christi, TX, my kids became fans. While my husband and I grew up listening to Selena y Los Dinos and still remember vividly when she was taken from this world too early by “she-who-will-not-be-named,” we never really played her music around the house for our children to hear. FACEPALM!

After realizing how utterly unacceptable our children’s lack of education regarding Tejano music’s most honored and cherished female figure, my husband and I bought the movie on iTunes and created the appropriate Spotify playlists for all our kids to enjoy. Three months later, all five of our kids can recognize a Selena song and even our 1-year-old will bop up and down to “Biddi Biddi Bom Bom.” Our older two are now enjoying other artists like Ritchie Valens because, as I told them, before Selena, there was Ritchie.

Must-have Picture Book!

Of course, I couldn’t call myself a homeschool mama without buying a book to further my children’s appreciation of Selena. While there have been a number of notable picture books featuring figures in Hispanic history, perhaps there has not been one that has brought forth such overwhelming nostalgia to me as this new release from Little Bee Books called, Queen of Tejano Music: Selena (aff). 

Written by Silivia Lopez, Queen of Tejano Music: Selena is written as a picture book biography recommended for children ages 6-9 but it is easily enjoyable for tweens and teens, as my own teen and tween can attest. There is an appropriate amount of text to engage children about Selena’s life from her birth (she was an Easter baby!) until her death. There are also fun quotes from Selena herself such as this one from her early years in the music business: “If we got five or ten dollars,” Selena said, “we could go to Whataburger!”

The book also includes a timeline of Selena’s life and a few pages in the back with important contextual information called “A Little More About…” that includes pages of information about the following: 
  • Tejanos, Hispanics or Latinos, 
  • Tejano or Tex-Mex Music, 
  • Quinceaneras, 
  • Lake Jackson, Texas, 
  • Corpus Christi, Texas, 
  • Selena Behind the Scenes, 
  • Tragedy, 
  • and Remembering Selena.
What makes this picture book a MUST-have is not just the useful information, but the absolutely gorgeous illustrations. Illustrator Paola Escobar’s work is captivating and vibrant. There are so many tiny details in each two-page spread that you could look through this book many times and still find something new to look at. And just look at the cover art! Doesn’t it just take your breath away?!? The roses, Selena’s iconic purple costume, a microphone. I’m completely obsessed.

Queen of Tejano Music: Selena

Was Selena A Homeschooler?

The technical answer to this question is no. Selena, finished her education through “long-distance classes” which is another way of saying, she went to correspondence school so that she could study while touring and not have to worry about showing up to a brick and mortar school. But the idea of Selena being a homeschooler is intriguing, isn’t it? In fact, on the timeline, provided in the back of the picture book it says, “1984. Left middle school to tour with the band, now called Selena y Los Dinos. Began homeschool classes.” Awe. The book even used “homeschool” as one word not “home school” with a space in between which people who aren’t familiar with homeschooling call it in writing. 

While Selena could not have legally called herself a homeschooler at the time (homeschooling was not officially legalized in Texas until 1994 according to the Texas Homeschool Coalition) she certainly acquired her education in a manner that was unique and family-centric. The illustration on the page which describes Selena’s education has Selena, her siblings, and her parents all working together to help Selena with her work. There are books and notebooks, a calculator and a tea cup, pencils and markers all on the table. It looks like a normal homeschool day to me, but I’m totally biased. LOL! 

It is well documented that later in her career, Selena would speak at schools across Texas about the value of education. However, I can’t help but wonder, if homeschooling had been what it is now, would the Quintanillas have been a homeschooling family? Just one of so many questions we are left with one someone is taken so unexpectedly from this world.

Queen of Tejano: Selena is only available as a hardback book and I can understand that during these times, $18.99 might be a high price for a picture book. If this is the case, ask your library to buy it! In fact, even if you do buy this book for your family, ask your library to buy it anyway. This book is a treasure and for Hispanic Heritage Month, your entire community would benefit from having a library that has wonderful picture books like this in their collection.

Originally from Mission, Texas, Stacie and her high-school sweetheart hubby live with their kids and dog in a different home every few years, because that is the military life. She has big plans to write a book exploring her theory that La Llorona drowned her children because they would take their socks off all over the house and then would complain that they never had clean ones! Stacie also thinks she is really funny, but she is mostly lame.

Free 30-Minute Language Learning Online Class for MommyMaestra Readers


The following is a sponsored post by Cultural Bytes

This month is our favorite month here at Cultural Bytes because it’s the month to share our heritage. Cultural Bytes is a FULL IMMERSION language program that focuses on teaching children many languages - Spanish, French, and Mandarin. 

Due to the pandemic, we changed our methods of teaching. At first, we thought it was going to be difficult since it was ALL online but luckily parents, as well as their children, have loved our classes! We have students all over the world learning with the Cultural Bytes teachers. The advantage of learning a language not only gives our students the ability to develop their critical thinking, their communication skills, and their vocabulary faster, but it also includes the most important part:  CULTURE! 

These classes focus INDIVIDUALLY on the student. What that means is that the teacher finds out what the student likes and enjoys and from there, the class is built. The only catch is that it’s fully in the language they will be learning. It is really fun! And for that reason we would like to offer a 30-minutes FREE class to all MommyMaestra readers when you fill out this form

We are so excited to hear from you! 

If you want to learn more visit www.cultural-bytes.org
