We at BeLigual Kids are thrilled to announce a new partnership with a longstanding tournament promoter. New in 2018 Jolly Construction and CaddyShack merge to create an even more memorable event.

The CaddyShack Golf Tournament at Redlands Mesa will be held April 22, 2018. The tournament will be a truly unique and laughter-filled event, focused on every golfer’s favorite classic comedy.

There will be a Giant Crane Ball drop with cash prize as well as lots of side bets, a wacky long-drive contest, great prizes and a great community event!

Honoring the dead with festivals and lively celebrations, a typically Latin American custom. It is thought that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness, Dia de los Muertos celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life. Dia de los Muertos recognizes death as a natural part of the human experience, a continuum with birth, childhood, and growing up to become a contributing member of the community. The most familiar symbol of Dia de los Muertos may be the calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls), which we learned all about in class this week. We had a great time decorating these sugar skulls and learning about the holiday as well as practicing our colors, please, thank you and basic Spanish questions.
We are forever grateful to our sponsors for their continued support of BeLingual Kids and our goals of teaching elementary age kids Spanish.

We will continue to weave cultural information about specific countries into our lessons. In the last couple of weeks the kids learned about Cuba.
They also learned how to say Happy Valentine’s Day. The lesson on learning how to say the date was reinforced, and oral homework was to practice saying: Hoy es martes el 14 de febrero de 2017 y Feliz Día de San Valentín.
In accordance with the cultural lesson on Cuba, we listened to Celia Cruz’s song “La vida es un carnival,” which I translated for the kids. We went through the lyrics to recognize words they have learned. They were amazed how many words they could recognize.
