Talento Nuevo! Sara y "Más Canciones en Español!"

Sunday, April 22, 2012

I was very excited when I received Sara's music CD, "Más canciones en español." My excitement took on a life of its own when I listened to her songs. What a sweet and lovely voice! It's very nice to discover a new artist with a young voice and music that promote a fun learning environment while also teaching culture. Every day I realize there is so much talent out there :) 

Many of the songs on Sara's CD are traditional and bring alive diverse Mexican rhythms. Even better, this music CD is suitable for children who are just learning Spanish as a second language and children who are growing up in a bilingual environment. What a great teaching tool to have in Spanish class or at home!

One of my favorite songs is "El Dragón" which is very short and provides a lot of repetition that makes it easy to teach. Another one that is a fave - not only in my casa, but also in my classes - is "Los Pollitos." Sara did a very nice job making this song  enjoyable, inspiring children ask for it in every Spanish class.

I can't forget to mention that my heart jumped for joy when I heard her version of one of the most beautiful traditional Andean songs in existence, "Carnavalito Humauaqueño." This song is a "must have." As with many of her songs, this one promotes culture and is perfect to support a unit about the Andes region. Plus, it will really get your students jumping!

This music CD is a treasure. I highly recommend it to parents and educators who are in search of beautiful songs that teach and promote cultural understanding. I am sure you will love it as much as my students and I do!

To learn more about Sara and her music, "like" her Facebook page, and visit her website and online store.

Have fun teaching and learning!

El Conejito Blanco - Song & Flashcards

Friday, April 6, 2012
During one of my extended trips to Latin America with my daughter, we created this video while playing together at home. Later it inspired one of the songs on the music CD “Jump into Spanish."

This is the video that we created while spending a summer in the highlands of Guatemala:

The song has been recorded by a Colombian band and is now available on iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon  for $0.99.

I have also created a set of flashcards and coloring pages that go along with the song.

Have fun teaching,

Make a pollito using a plastic egg!

Sunday, April 1, 2012
To make this pollito (chick) you will need the following materials:
  • Plastic eggs
  • Yellow and orange felt
  • wiggly eyes 
  • glue gun
  • yellow feathers

Once you have your pollito ready, use the inside to send a message to the parents of your students. It could be an update of the class or simply sharing vocabulary and sentences related to the spring season.

I have been teaching the song "Los Pollitos" to my PreK classes. This is a great opportunity to send home the lyrics of the song inside the pollito for parents to sing along with their children.
Grab a copy of the song below, make your pollitos and send it home!

Here is "Los Pollitos" song on YouTube!

Have fun teaching!
