I remember writing this song called I Love My Family / Yo quiero mi familia almost 7 years ago! My sister and I had been to a women’s event sponsored by our local PBS Station, and we did not want to go home to laundry, cooking and cleaning so we stopped at a local restaurant for a couple of Tapas plates (Tapas is common in Spain where you order small plates of hot or cold appetizers and share with friends).
Below is a YouTube mini lesson on the song we wrote during our meal! The YouTube version of the song uses visual aides from Lakeshore Learning and features two children who are having a silly time acting out the family members in the song:
It wasn’t much into the meal that we decided to Piggyback a Boca Beth song onto the children’s classic melody of the song B-I-N-G-O! When you Piggyback a song it means you write new lyrics to go with the tune/the melody of a familiar song, thus creating a new song.
This week we will focus on the family. Here is the link to find some bilingual language cards for FREE from Boca Beth about family members. Sister/brother are in April, Mommy/Daddy are in March, and Grandma/Grandpa are in November.
Go to this new lesson featured on OnLineFreeSpanish.com – this company puts out really fun bilngual stuff, and it’s free!
See you later this week for more fun about family/la familia.
Happy Educating! ¡Sea feliz educando!
