Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Día de los Muertos Comes to Life Across the Mexican Diaspora" by Isabel Dobrin.

In the informational text “Día De Los Muertos Comes To Life Across The Mexican Diaspora,” Isabel Dobrin discusses the holiday also known as Day of the Dead, its history, and how it is celebrated. 

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of America, Death, and Identity as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How has America changed over time?", "How do people face death?", and "What makes you who you are?"
