Invitation to Create Champurrado

Invitation to Make Champurrado// The book ‘Twas Nochebuena written by Roseanne Thong and illustrated by @sarapalaciosillustrations follows a family as they prepare to host a night filled with laughter, love, & Latino tradition. Make tasty tamales,hang colorful adornos (decorations) on the walls, gather to sing festive canciones (songs), all while sipping #champurrado (hot chocolate).

Exposing children to cultural diversity is a beautiful way to showcase how holidays are celebrated around the world. Since culture is a strong part of people’s lives, it when different cultures are introduced, celebrated, & shown to children at a young age, they gain a level of understanding & perspective of others, which is needed in order to build community in relationships, facilitate collaboration, & encourage cooperation & respect in the future.

Integrating stories that are related to the concept explorations are motivating, inviting, engaging & appealing to children. Additional information & comprehension can be gained from these books in the context of a story. The pictures can impart a lot of meaning to help the children learn more about a topic, interact, relate their own experiences, & guide the children’s inquiry.

After reading the story we set up our @discountschoolsupply #TuffTray with hot chocolate powder, water, @dollartree shaving cream, cups, utensils, & invited them to create Champurrado. Champurrado is a chocolate-based atole, a warm & thick Mexican beverage. It is prepared with either a masa, masa harina, or corn flour; piloncillo; water or milk; & occasionally containing cinnamon, anise seed, or vanilla. Ground nuts, orange zest, & egg can also be added to thicken & enrich the drink.
