It’s time for Las Posadas, and Lupe and Roberto have been chosen to play the parts of Mary and Joseph in search of shelter on the night of Jesus’ birth. On their way to the celebration, the couple makes a quick visit to see Sister Angie, the longtime organizer of the celebration, who is too sick to attend the festivities this year.
This complete book unit includes a summary, story discussion idea, and a wide range of activities and projects designed to enrich students’ learning across the curriculum!
The end of a Las Posadas celebration is a festive occasion. Often, children take turns swinging a stick at a suspended piñata—a papier-maché container filled with candy, fruit, and gifts. When the piñata breaks, the goodies spill out and children scramble to collect their favorites!
