It's Just For Fun Friday! On JFFF, we review items and activities that you can do with your kids in order to increase their cultural competence and diversity awareness.
Last week, we talked about someone who has been around for awhile - love Dora! - but this week we're talking about a new fabulous Latina. And frankly - she kicks butt. This new show on Disney Junior is called Elena of Avalor and it's absolutely fantastic. It is my daughter's new favorite show and, I admit, I love to watch it too. Elena is a crown princess who seeks counsel and wisdom from friends and family. She is a ruler who takes her job very seriously - she's not just waiting for some man to tell her what to do. Such a fantastic role model for girls - and boys - of all races. And she speaks Spanish too!
Check out the video and then print out the page below for a quick list of potential questions, comments, and activities to talk about and engage in as you watch this great new show together. There's also a link to get more from Elena.
What do you think about Disney finally giving us a Latina princess? Is Elena a good role model? Why or why not? Leave a comment below.
Most of all, enjoy. And don't forget to HAVE FUN!
Check back next week for another Just For Fun Friday!
