Bilingual Resources That Make Your Job Easier as a Monolingual Parent/Teacher

Thursday, January 27th, 2011


This week’s lesson from my Fiesta Fun online show (find us over at every Tuesday morning at 10 am EST) centers around children learning vocabulary words in Spanish and English around parts of the body.  The replay of the show is available online at this link.

Below are some fun, easy-to-access and practical resources that introduce Spanish-speaking children to English and English-speaking children to Spanish:

See It!  Say It!  ~ Listen in and read the vocabulary words at our free bilingual resource area today!  (click the link to the left and go about three sections down the page to find parts of the body)

My Body / Mi cuerpo (English and Spanish Foundations Series) (Book #8) (Bilingual) (Board Book) (English and Spanish Edition)                                    

Free bilingual language cards ~ Simply click the link to the left, find the cards for ear/oreja and nose/nariz on this page, print them off and laminate them for long term use, then look around for other flashcards you find interesting to use

Bilingual books are always great ~  Use this book (link is to the left) for reinforcing the parts of the body sung about in our Movin’ & Groovin’ song.  Try this one also – both are wonderful and bilingual (meaning they feature Spanish and English on every page)

It’s easy finding resources that bring the bilingual learning to life using the internet!  Try it!  Then share with us in the comments below what other Spanish and English learning tools you found for young children learning parts of the body.  Gracias/Thank you.

“Movin’ & Groovin’/Mueve y Baila”
(An original beat by Progressive Media & Music

Movin’ and groovin’!
I like to move! I like to groove!
Mueve y baila!
Move and groove with me! (chorus)

Close your eyes, Cierra tus ojos.
Pull your ears, Ala tus orejas.
Now say yes with your head.
Ahora di si con tu cabeza.

Open your mouth, Abre tu boca.
Touch your teeth, Toca tus dientes.
Now stick out your tongue.
Ahora saca tu lengua. (chorus)

Raise your eyebrows, Lavanta tus cejas.
Pull your hair, Ala tu pelo.
Now wrinkle up your nose.
Ahora arruga tu nariz.

Shake your shoulders, Sacude tus hombros.
Lift your arms, Levanta tus brazos.
Now clap with your hands.
Ahora aplaude con tus manos. (chorus)

Wiggle your fingers, Mueven tus dedos.
Wiggle your seat, Mueve tu trasero.
Now run with your legs.
Ahora corre con tus piernas.

Touch your tummy, Toca tu bariga.
Shake your hips, Sacuden tus caderas.
Now turn all the way around.
Ahora dese una vuelta. (chorus)

Bend your knees, Dobla tus rodillas.
Touch your feet, Toca tus pies.
Now stand on one foot.
Ahora sobre un pie.

Stretch up high, Estira alto.
Sit down low, Sientate bajo.
Now rest your special body.
Ahora descansa tu cuerpo especial.

Bilingual Body Parts Beware! Boca Beth Has You Covered!

bodyparts          bodyparts2So many fun ways to help children learn Spanish and English together! 

Did you realize experts agree that it’s just as easy for a baby and toddler to learn two words for one item as it is to learn only one word?

Hope you love these additional fun resources for kids to learn parts of the body in both English and Spanish:

First off, in addition to the Movin’ & Groovin’ bilingual song off our Sing Along with Boca Beth music CD we have a song called Where is My….? for the younger children asking where their eye/ojo, ear/oreja, mouth/boca, nose/nariz, hand/mano, and foot/pie are.  Click the link below to download the song and listen in.

Where is My…? / ¿Dónde está me…?     (click the link to the left to enjoy our first Boca Beth body parts song for kids)

Did you know that on our web site you have access to more than 140 bilingual language cards FREE that you can download and laminate for use with your young children and/or students?  Click this link to go to one of many pages of Spanish/English flashcards (I like calling them language cards because I do not like drill & instruction) and enjoy!


Later this week we will enjoy some bilingual books on this theme PLUS audio See It! Say It! files.
