Tinga Layo - caribbean folk song
In my area of the country, a lot of people celebrate Cinco de Mayo, so there were quite a few "fiesta" related items at my Dollar Tree.
I picked up this little guy (I haven't named him yet, I'm going to let one of my bilingual classes do that as I'm sure they'll be much more creative) for $1. I've already created a PowerPoint for the song Arre Mi Burrito, so I think I'll be using that with my first graders soon.
The song Tinga Layo (click the link to download it for free) is in Spanish and is also about a little donkey, but it originates in the Caribbean. I'll be heading there this summer on vacation, so I'm already pretty excited. I mean, it is almost May, who isn't looking forward to a little summer fun? This is a great opportunity to expose the kiddos to a few moments of Caribbean music.
