Little New-Yorkers in January
January 5 & 8
The Museum by Susan Verde
This month we’re taking another look at our wonderful exhibition Picasso’s “Le Tricorne” by exploring all things Spanish. We’ll start by exploring Picasso’s cubist style and creating our very own cubist collage.
January 12 & 15
Spanish Storytelling (The Magic Mirror of Granada)
This week we continue our exploration of all things Spanish with a traditional fairy tale. Families might recognize parts of this Iberian tale as a version of the classic, Cinderella. Children will then make a paper hand mirror.
January 19 & 22
The Little Matador by Julian Hector
This week we’ll explore the Spanish tradition of bullfighting. In this story we’ll meet a little bullfighter who will teach us all about being true to yourself. Children will then make a pop-up bull-fighting ring.
January 26 & 29
Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
This week we’ll once again explore the Spanish tradition of bullfighting and read about Ferdinand the bull in this children’s book classic. Children will learn that Ferdinand is unlike any bull they’ve met before. Children will then make a floral crowned bull mask.
