Five Christmas Songs for Spanish Class
I can't believe Christmas is around the corner! Many of us are teaching Christmas songs to our students, and what a great way to teach vocabulary in context.
Here is a group of fun songs I found on YouTube and that I think are perfect for Spanish learners. Some of the songs are more complex, and some have a great amount of repetition. You can choose the song according to the amount of time you have left to teach it to your students. This year I didn't really plan in advance so I decided to go with same old "Noche de Paz" and I am surprised that my students still love singing this song!
Anyways, here are all the villancicos I have chosen for you!
1. Mi Burrito Sabanero, a version by Colombian singer Juanes. This is a traditional song known mostly in Latin America. Click here to listen to another fun version.
2. Cascabel by TinyTunes
3. ¡Feliz Navidad a Todos! by Little Baby Bum
4. Muñeco de Nieve by Los Niños Cantores de Navidad from Colombia
5. Tutaina Tuturuma is a traditional Christmas song from Latin America.
