Sueña a Color

In an effort to bring this celebration to life, we've partnered with the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Through the wonderful tradition of storytelling, your students can learn more about their diverse backgrounds and take pride in their distinct cultures. By taking notice of the details of their daily lives through their writing, students of all ages can explore and express the unique family and cultural heritage that helps make up their identity.

Our fun and inspiring storytelling activities, grade-appropriate lesson plans, videos and helpful resources are all of the materials you’ll need to help them create their own stories now and throughout the school year.
