Inside: Spanish parts of the body songs: a list for kids on YouTube.
Here are my favorite songs for learning the parts of the body in Spanish. There are lots of games that work well with this theme, too, like Simón dice. Once your classes know the basic parts of the body, brain breaks are super easy to do! Give commands like “tócate la cabeza” or “cierra los ojos,” and stay in the target language more easily.
SPANISH PARTS OF THE BODY SONGS
1. A MI BURRO
This authentic song in Spanish includes some body parts (cabeza, cuello, corazón) . It also repeats “le duele” a lot, if you’re teaching how to express that something hurts.
2. CABEZA, HOMBROS, RODILLAS Y PIES
Most kids already know this one in English, and it’s a fun one to teach as the pace gets faster and faster.
3. SACO UNA MANITO
To learn about hands, this is a sweet classic. It’s nice to use right before story time or circle time when we want everyone sitting with hands in their own space!
4. TODO MI CUERPO
These lyrics are similar to “cabeza, hombros, rodillas, pies,” but with more high frequency parts. As always with Calico Spanish, the song is easy to understand.
5. BAILA LA CUMBIA
Get in some culture with this fun mix of cumbia and body parts!
