Our Favorite Greetings Songs in Spanish

Our Favorite Greetings Songs in Spanish

Inside: Spanish greetings songs for kids, with “Hola, ¿cómo estás?” and other greetings.

 

If you’re wondering where to START in teaching your kids Spanish, almost every teacher starts with greetings. If you only make it through one topic in learning Spanish as a family, learn greetings. Your students will go into Spanish 1 with at least one week they can feel confident in! The songs this week teach things like “good night,” “good morning,” “how are you?” and “what’s your name?”

 

 

Spanish Greetings Songs

 

 

These are perfect phrases to work into your family vocabulary when you say hello in the morning and kiss goodnight.

 

1. Buenos días / Good Morning

 

 

2. Buenas noches / Goodnight

 

 

3. Buenos días, ¿cómo estás? / Good Morning, How are You?

 

 

4. ¿Cómo te llamas?

 

 

5. ¿Cómo te llamas? / What’s Your Name?

 

 

Don’t forget that I have created complete units that cover greeting and beginning Spanish! Also, check out my greetings Pinterest board below. I’ve created theme-specific boards in case you are looking for anything particular.

The Best Spanish Numbers Songs for Kids

The Best Spanish Numbers Songs for Kids

Inside: Spanish numbers songs for kids.

 

I’m starting a series of posts about favorite songs and videos in Spanish by topic– numbers, colors, animals. etc. I use songs in my classroom a lot, but this series is geared to parents looking for songs to use at home. When non-native or non-speaking parents ask me where to start, I recommend starting with songs! Here’s why:

– Songs make learning fun and memorable.

– Songs are even easier than books because you pronunciation is included.

– They are free online!

– I consider this a wise use of screen time because you can continue to sing the songs elsewhere: in the car, at bedtime, etc.

If you never get around to the fancy language programs or classes, learning lots of songs in Spanish throughout the preschool and elementary years WILL PAY OFF, even in high school! As they learn vocabulary and phrases in context, it will make high school Spanish easier one day.

Fall Winter Blog Hop Square (1)

I am a Johnny-come-lately to the Fall/Winter blog hop for Spanish teachers, but better late than never, right?! There is only one day left, but be sure to check out the sale on TpT! I found some great deals for my interactive notebooks and already used them this week. Use the hashtag #fallwinterspanishsale for some great deals!

Thankfulness is such an important concept for our students. For my older students, I’m planning a “Doy gracias por…” display, where they each include what they’re thankful for. As much as it’s important to remind them to BE thankful, I think exposure to the world around them is a more lasting method. Good books, videos or the news can give us those kind of personal connections and highlight all the things we take for granted. My printable is for younger students and is a mini-book for elementary students to trace, color, and read.

Here are some helpful links for supplementing Unit Three:

En Mi Mochila Roja (GREAT song for practicing classroom objects! Contains more objects than are covered in the unit, and uses “bolígrafo” instead of “pluma” for “pen.” Also helpful for practicing making nouns and adjectives agree.)
