123 Spanish Together Review & Giveaway


GIVEAWAY CLOSED: WINNER IS #8 The girl who painted trees!
"En colombia, se baila la cumbia, en Puerto Rico se baila la salsa..." this catchy tune is hard to sit and listen to. You have to get up and dance! Whatever my kids are doing, if I am playing Jump into Spanish by 123 Spanish Together, they stop what they are doing so they can listen to this fun music. 123 Spanish Together has 8 CD's with a variety of traditional rhythms and unique lyrics. Go here to listen to some song samples. Make sure to check out my favorites: Mi Cuerpo and Mi Gallo Kikiriki.


I have been searching for more of a preschool curriculum in Spanish. All the music I find only teaches colors, animals, food, and basic vocabulary. I was so excited to find 123 Spanish Together because their music is not only fun, but it covers a variety of subjects that can be used for holidays, seasons and preschool themes. They can pretend they are a pavito for Thanksgiving, follow a story of 5 Little Pumpkins for Halloween or sing a song about leaves changing colors in the Fall.

My favorite song on the Jump into Spanish CD is the song that talks about different Latin dances in different countries. I have been wanting to introduce Latin American countries to my daughters, but I didn't want to overwhelm them with just memorizing a map. Now I can introduce the first 3 and introduce Latin dances along with them. How fun!



All the singers are native speakers which is very important to me, especially since I am a non-native speaker. I love how they use drums and beats that are very traditional Latin sounds. Most of them involve movement which I think really helps children remember what the words mean.

Glad you're back! I hope everything is settling in :) I'm going to assume your ending date is incorrect and just go ahead and enter. I would love Sing, Move and Dance in Spanish because I love the El Cuerpo song. Thanks for highlighting such a neat product! I'm always looking for new Spanish curriculum. In case I miss the post, please also email me at SacBookMom@gmail.com. THANKS!!
