In second and third grade music lessons, we put a huge emphasis on identifying instruments. So a folk song that includes instruments AND is in Spanish is a win-win for my class! En la Pulga de San Jose is a folk song about going to the market in Puerto Rico and purchasing different instruments.

This Google Slides presentation will help you teach the song to your 2 and 3 grade music classes. It includes the lyrics, the translation in English, information about Puerto Rico, and more. It also includes embedded videos of each of the instruments in the song, so that students can hear what they sound like.
