Tito Puente Lesson Plans, Coloring Pages, Crafts, Activities and More

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I'm delighted to participate once again in the MKB Hispanic Heritage Series. I've chosen to highlight musician Tito Puente this year. Below, you'll find a few resources for studying the Mambo King, as well as a free download that I've created for the occasion. I hope you enjoy!

Tito Puente Lesson Plans

Coloring Pages & Download

Not a lot of options are out there for coloring pages. So I made one and am sharing it with my newsletter subscribers

I also have a MommyMaestra's 1-page reading passage and coloring page for young readers. You can download this printable page for free here (English-only version). The reading passage is for 4th - 8th grades.

OR you can purchase the full reading passage with English and Spanish versions plus a digital version here in my TpT shop

Videos about Tito Puente

For Younger Children:

• Check out this introductory video to the book Tito Puente:

• You can also find Tito Puente on Sesame Street! And again here

For Older Students

• And for older students, here's Tito's official Oye Como Va video.

• This is a great interview with Tito

Tito has also been featured in a Google Doodle! Shown below. If you want to share the 
(excellent!) story behind it  with your children/students, check out the video, Behind the Doodle: Celebrating Tito Puente.


Definitely one of my favorite children's books on the market...
