2013 - 2014: La Vida de Pepa! The Life of Pepa!
This school year, please join Hola La’s funny blue-haired mascot, “Pepa”, and her tricky brother, “Pepe”, as their everyday routines become entertaining adventures! In the fall, children will have fun helping “Pepa” and “Pepe” get ready for school, as well as visit “la granja” (the farm) on school trips and weekends. In the winter, children will venture to school with “Pepa” and “Pepe”, as well as visit Puerto Rico for a big family reunion! In the spring, Pepa and Pepe will have fun sharing their favorite after-school games and snacks. They particularly love to catch butterflies and caterpillars! The children will then wrap up their day by eating dinner and listening to some fun stories and going to sleep.
Through Hola La's signature humor, catchy chants and engaging games and stories, children will learn everyday vocabulary and phrases, native customs of Puerto Rico, and get to know Pepa's family and new surroundings.*
School programs through 8th grade will engage through literacy and appropriately-mapped curriculum by grade level.*
*All Hola La curriculum incorporates colors, numbers, calendar, weather, greetings and other everyday modules as appropriate by age, length and
frequency of programming.
