Part of our unwavering commitment to teachers and students is finding even more ways to creatively engage students—which includes our community of characters living in the DE platform!
Keep reading to get to know Abuelo, and be sure to come back and meet the whole gang—Disco, The Littles, and The Big Kids—and find them in DE!
Abuelo is Eduardo’s friendly grandpa who’s up for anything if it means spending quality time with the kids. He’s an exceptional listener who loves telling jokes and laughing at them—even if they’re his own. A former chef, Abuelo is still very much interested in health and food, and deeply appreciates different cultures. You may also catch him tearing up when looking at art or hearing a really good story.
Where You’ll Find Him
Sometimes you’ll see Abuelo falling asleep at inopportune times or adjusting his antennae to hear you better. He may even wave his cane at you—but in a nice way! Yet, with age comes wisdom, and Abuelo often avoids giving a straight answer and instead asks the right questions so you think of a solution yourself.
- Asking “how does that work again?”
- Helping reiterate instructions or recapping a lesson.
- Asking the “dumb” question to encourage deeper thinking.
- Telling jokes and making light of every situation.
- Being delightfully lost.
Abuelo's DE Picks
Abuelo loves being anywhere the kids take him, but especially enjoys worldly performances of music and theater. The Culture Channel is a favorite of his, and he also likes perusing the Health Channel for tips on mindfulness and vitality.
