Hispanic Heritage Studies for Families


Dear readers,

Seventeen years ago, my husband's job moved us half way across the country, away from my family and culture. As a result, I found myself struggling to pass on my heritage to my children. I was really, really sad that they couldn't experience the same cultural traditions that I did as a child. I did my best to look for resources and events to share with them, but wasn't having much luck. 

I worried and fretted that they wouldn't learn to love the beauty of their Spanish & Mexican heritage. So when we were thrust into homeschooling (long story that you can read about elsewhere), I realized that maybe the best way to teach my kids was with printable reading passages, activities, games, and more. 

I began researching and writing and designing. I made resources to use with my kids and then slowly began making them available to other families, who I thought might be struggling like I was.

And then, I decided to keep researching and expand my education materials to include other Hispanic backgrounds and cultures, such as Puerto Rico, Cuba, and so on.

These materials have sold really well on TpT over the years. But I've been worried that my resources aren't really reaching their intended audience: Hispanic families. I love that teachers are using them in classooms, but I worry about the families like mine who need access to products that help them pass on their culture and raise children who are proud of their heritage.

Hispanic Heritage Studies

Early this year, a tiny idea found its way into my head. It's been growing, and growing, and growing until I finally decided to just go for it. And just like that, Hispanic Heritage Studies was born. 

My vision for this program goes like this: 

The Hispanic Heritage Studies program itself will consist of themed modules, including:

  • Spanish-Speaking Countries, 
  • Holidays & Traditions, 
  • Food, 
  • Art, 
  • Music, and
  • Historical Figures (actually, these will be broken up into separate modules: Musicians, Artists, Writers, etc.)

Each module will come with a lesson plan and additional resources that you can print, click on, make, watch, etc. all of which help teach the theme of the module. So you can use the lesson plan or just use the printable resources. Whatever works for your family.

Each theme will include learning resources for K-12th and broken down into the following grades:

  1. K - 2nd
  2. 3rd - 5th
  3. 6th - 8th
  4. 9th - 12th
Does this sound interesting to you?

Become a Founding Member

I have already begun assembling my team to work on this program. 

I would love to invite you to join us as a Founding Member. This select group will be the first ones to use my program. And I'm relying on these Founding Members to help shape the vision of this program by telling me what works, what doesn't, and what they'd like to see on it.

As a Founding Member you'll have access with the lowest introductory pricing locked at $15/month or $150 for LIFETIME access, and for all the future bonuses we add, you'll get those, too. These rates and resources are only for Founding Members and will only be available until this Wednesday at 11:59pm CT OR UNTIL we reach the number limit.

I’m limiting the number of Founding Members in order to be able to work with them personally to get feedback. But I already opened it up in our homeschool group and on the MommyMaestra Facebook page and the spaces are filling up. So, if you're interested, please don't wait until Wednesday to sign up. 

If you have ANY questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Want to learn more about the themed modules and see sample files? You'll find them here.

I’m pretty excited about this program and all that it will have to offer. But I’m most excited about all the children and families who will benefit from it.
