The following is a list of my most frequently used songs and music in my Spanish and bi-lingual programming.
The links take you to Amazon.com where you can find more information about the songs. I am currently NOT an affiliate of Amazon.com, just a frequent customer who has noted that many of the things I use in my programming can be viewed on their site.
Another great CD from the folks at Whistlefritz. Favorites include: Baile de los Manos; De Colores; Hora de Limpiar; Vengan a Ver Mi Granja; and Arco Iris. Vengan a Ver Mi Granja and Arco Iris translate well into flannel sing-a-long stories.
A great CD by the folks at Pam Schiller Resource. Favorites from this CD include: Mascotas de Emilia; Aqui en Mi Jardin; and Cinco Mariquitas. Un Elefante and Señor Don Gato can also be made into flannel boards.
At over six minutes in length, this is a long song for the preschool crowd, but if presented with the right amount of drama and flair, it quickly becomes a favorite. Easily adapts into a flannel board by making momma and baby animal pieces.
Fun album that often features children singing the songs. You’ll find a cute version of: Hokey Pokey; Pulgarcito; La Pequeña Araña; Ojos, Boca y Dientes as well a good welcoming song and a clean-up song.
In addition to the classic, Soy Una Pizza, you will find Somos Como las Flores: Di Dinosaurio, a pleasant version of La Bamba; and Himno de Alegría (Ode to Joy). There is also an English version of this album that has many of the same songs: 10 Carrot Diamond.
Contains a fun adaptation of the Hokey Pokey: Ven Que Te Voy A Ensenar.
Favorites from this album include Vibora de la Mar (which is a game song similar to London Bridge), El Burrito Enfermo (can be made into a flannel version as well), Las Mañitas, Los Pollitos and the timeless classic De Colores.
This is an older CD that may or may not be available on Amazon. There are two volumes. They are both well done, but I found more usable material in volume two which contains: En un Ãrbol yo Conocí, La Ranita, Adios/Vive la compagnie. Here is a link to his website if you want more information about his work: Jim Rule. La Ranita and En un Ãrbol yo Conocí adapted well to flannel.
