Bad Mamí

The word ñandu has been on my kids' phonics chart for three years. I just learned today that it's a South American ostrich. Who knew? Not even M's Mexican Spanish teacher so maybe I shouldn't feel bad.

La araña Pirulina

J recited this poem in front of the school board last year. Solo!

La araña Pirulina
por la pared se subió,
y mi Tia Catalina
con la escoba la barrió.
