Thy Kingdom Come…

One family's journey crossing cultures in pursuit of the kingdom of God

Finishing Well

My Spanish classes had an interesting end to the school year. We talked about Holy Week in Spanish speaking countries and the practice of making alfombras de serrín (sawdust carpets) in Guatemala and other Central American countries. We then made our own!

My 9th grade class made first on with symbols from Holy Week.

We had extra sawdust, so they made one the "right" way, in the walkway where everyone passes through.

Together, they made a huge alfombra de serrín that said "Congratulations" in Bingham school colors and we put it out for graduation.

Not to be left out, my 6th grade class had a competition with the remaining colored sawdust.

Divided into 3 groups, they were given a bowl of three different colors and one class period.  They were told to use that to see what they could come up with.

There three were the results.  I had lollipops to get rid of, so I just gave them all one.
