Hey, I am super excited to share the newly revised "Spanish in August" lesson and Cd. It is printing and being bound as I am typing this. The kids learn numbers throughout the Spanish by the Month series but yesterday I added a new twist to the numbers songs. There are three tracks, one for learning numbers 1-10, another for 11-20 and another for 21-30. You and the kids chant the numbers to a fun beat two times, then you do so in a high voice-it sound like I just inhaled helium! The kids will get a kick out of that! To keep them on their toes, they then hear a low voice which sounds like a friendly monster though I don't mention the word monster as I don't want anyone to be afraid. There is even a robot voice that sings the numbers. The last verse everyone uses their regular voices. Be silly and encourage your children to be silly and repeat the numbers with the same voice they hear on the Cd. Counting in another language can be fun and silly-the kids will get a ton of repetition this way and I have a feeling they will beg you to count again and again with the silly Cd voices! Have fun!
