Many Montessori schools and homeschools introduce Spanish as well as English activities. There are wonderful resources available for anyone to use.
Great times to place an extra emphasis on learning the Spanish language and introducing information about Mexico are Cinco de Mayo (May 5) and Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). Although many of the Spanish-speaking Montessori bloggers are from countries other than Mexico, their activities have a lot to offer in the area of Montessori-inspired Spanish activities appropriate for Cinco de Mayo or any time during the year.
Most Montessori activities can be taught in Spanish or whatever language you’re studying.
