se chants (Cantos, Ritmos y Rimas) have been professionally recorded by latin percussionists (one of whom even played with the famous Ruben Blades) to be used and enjoyed in the Spanish classroom. They are not cheesy garage band amateur recordings. They are all recorded legitimate Caribbean and other latin beats and native speakers rhythmically reciting the cleverly written chant.
“Spanish – Speaking Countries, Capitals and Nationalities 2 Song/Chant” was originally named “Yo soy de Mexico” in the book/Cd version of Cantos, Ritmos y Rimas by Lonnie Dai Zovi. In an upbeat Samba variation beat), the students will hear the country, capital and the nationality of ten Spanish speaking countries. It is hard to stay in their seats with this lively beat! So, let them get up and move. They may point to the countries on a map, hold up cards (included in a separate TPT download), run to the country drawn in chalk or on a large shower curtain, sheet, butcher paper or whatever. See YouTube channel ldaizovi, Los países for additional ideas. Because the song is fast, the teacher should have the students react rather than sing, to the song. Eventually they will be able to sing it or parts of it. Input is just the beginning of output.
