Setting the Table in Spanish




I have a fun song that I use to help the children learn to set the table in Spanish. As I teach them the words, I get out a plate, fork, glass, etc. to demonstrate the different words. Then when they know it well, I let them change it and make up their own verses. The recording is of my grandchildren I teach. Here are the words:

¿Ya está puesta la mesa?

El mantel está sobre la mesa,
El plato y la servilleta.
¿Ya está puesta la mesa?
No, falta la cucharita.

El mantel está sobre la mesa,
El vaso y el cuchillo.
¿Ya está puesta la mesa?
No, falta la sal y pimienta.

I wish my kids had you as a grandma! That was adorable. I'll play it tonight while we set the table. I bet they can learn the song if they hear it enough.

Does a recording of this still exist? I don't see it linked here. :-)
