It’s Fiesta Time

It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is rapidly approaching. After reading a story in our first grade reading series, “Mama’s Birthday Present” I have been addicted to anything related to the word fiesta. My favorite place to eat is Moe’s.

I just can’t seem to get enough over achiever taco’s or queso and chips. Mmmmmmmmm!!! To celebrate my Moe’s addiction, I decided to create a Cinco de Mayo Mini Unit!! This unit has 14 different activities 7 math and 7 literacy to help you make your Cinco de Mayo Celebration quite FESTIVE!!

It is 96 pages- I have included both black/white and color coded cards by popular request. This way you can choose whether or not you want to print and go or copy, cut, and paste. (Everyone likes to do different things and my mailbox has been swamped with requests for color coded cards!!)


Terrific Taco Tally (Tally Counting)
Pedro’s Pesos (Coin Recognition)
Hot Chili Peppers: (3 number addition)
Nacho Nacho Man (Teen Number Counting)
It’s Fiesta Time (Time)

Mariachi Madness (Vowel Sounds)

Taco Grande (Sneaky E Words).
Sunsational Sounds(Beginning Sounds)
