This is “El Bigote.”
The day after the Oscars, my kids were a little drowsy and not too engaged in the story we were creating and in one of those weird “an idea just hit me” moments, I grabbed a red solo cup and my roll of mustache duct tape to create an Oscar of my own. I added a mustache (inside joke for all of my Spanish 1s this year since the mysterious man in all of their early stories had a mustache on his finger) and named the award “El Bigote.”
El Bigote doesn’t go home with the kids, it stays in our room where it can be re-awarded daily. This is Bella. She won the Bigote for mejor criminal en un carro nuevo. Like all other winners, I took her picture and will add it to our wall of fame.
This is Victor who won best hungry cat in a McFalafel in Saudi Arabia! The award is really perking up both engagement and enthusiasm! Everyone wants to win! They are loving the acceptance speeches best of all!
