This product is based on the original children's song, "Dancing to the “Boogaloo” You’ll Describe it Too" written by Gloria Rojas and Lannie Battistini. There is an English version as well as a Spanish version of this song. This file contains the English version. This delightful boogaloo rhythm will have the kids singing, dancing and signing describing words (adjectives) in no time. So many of our young Dual language learners lack the necessary descriptors in their verbal repertoire to adequately describe verbally. Teachers…. If your English Language Learners are struggling to add descriptors in their written work, we need to back it up and meet them where they are. This may imply rehearsing the skill verbally first. Actually, before they label adjectives, they need to be able to identify describing words (e.g., Show me which one is heavy/light, big/small, etc.)
This zip file was created to give you immediate access to the Mp3 file version of the song as well as visual support that is included as a picture book version of the book. A picture of me signing (in American Sign Language) each of the target vocabulary has not been included, although the plan is to post a video of the target words on YouTube. Additional materials to support this song will be uploaded soon so please stay tuned.
This song will support your study of describing words (adjectives).
You can preview the song on "Manitas" In Motion - Sing-Along and Sign By Gloria Rojas, Vol. 1 Amazon or iTunes iTunes
