Learn Through Spanish Song & Dance

Let’s sing! My kids love to sing, as we all do. Spanish song is a fun and easy way to learn Spanish at any age. Singing makes learning memorable and entertaining. Just like singing the alphabet, songs are a useful memory tool in language learning for kids. Sing vocabulary, sing stories and even sing the verbs.

When we develop our products, whether for school or home, we reinforce the vocabulary with songs. You can make up your own – just take a phrase you and your child are learning and put it to a tune. It does not have to be an original tune – just make it lively and catchy. Or, ask your child to come up with a tune!

Here are a few favorite Spanish songs which we developed.

Introductory Spanish Song

It is always good to introduce Spanish by learning greetings. It is fun to do this song using finger puppets.

Hola Bobby Song

•Hola Maria, Hola Maria, (Hello Maria, Hello Maria)•Me llamo Bobby. ( My name is Bobby.)•Hola Maria, hola Maria, •Me llamo Bobby.•Hola Bobby, hola Bobby, (Hello Bobby, Hello Bobby)•Me llamo Maria. ( My name is Maria)•Hola Bobby, hola Bobby,•Me llamo Maria.
