Para empezar la sesión de este domingo, dibujamos y coloreamos mientras aguardábamos a que fueran llegando otr@s. Cuando tuvimos un grupo suficientemente grande, nos dedicamos a repasar ritmos, canciones y bailes de los carnavales de Uruguay y Colombia para nuestra presentación final. Pasamos varios minutos repasando las letras y los pasos de la canción del caballito.
Ya se acerca nuestra presentación final. Gracias a tod@s por su trabajo este domingo. ¡Nos vemos el próximo!
To begin the session this Sunday, we drew and colored while we waited for others to arrive. When we had a sufficiently large group, we devoted time to reviewing rhythms, songs, and dances of the Carnival of Uruguay and Colombia for our final presentations. We spent several minutes reviewing the lyrics and steps of la canción del caballito.
During snack time, one of our volunteers told us about the carnival that they celebrate in Mexico every December 12th, and the relation that it has with the characters of the llorona and the Virgin of Guadalupe, as well as Aztec and Mayan gods.
In the second hour, as it is custom, we divided into groups in order to work with “El Corito” and the computers. As a group sang and danced to the songs that they had practiced, in the laboratory, they devoted time to create a digital card for Carnival.
Our final presentation is approaching. Thank you for all of your work this Sunday. We will see you next time!
