Last week in my Saturday songs series I shared our favorite songs for numbers. This week is all about colors! I had a harder times coming up with five that I LOVE. I like the kids to watch songs that are beautiful to see and beautiful to listen to (okay, that might be for my benefit), not just catchy or entertaining. Colors are easy to practice and learn, though, and there are many activities to practice them. In my Español in the Jungle Unit Two I cover colors and some fun ideas for practicing them.
Here are our top five colors songs in Spanish!
1. Canción de los colores — Toobys for the win again! Wonderful graphics and music.
2. Colores — Sweet, simple song.
3. Arco Iris — Bilingual song that goes through the rainbow of colors
4. Colores, colores — Goes through the colors with a profession for each color (would have been nice to show women doing some of the things)
5. De colores — I ran out of favorites that teach colors, so here is a wonderful traditional folk song. I love this version by Joan Baez!
and this version too. 🙂
El tren de colores — Not really a song, but easy to repeat and practice along with.
