Traditional Circle Game from Puerto Rico (recommended for 2nd-6th grade)

Standard

This looks like a fun lesson in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.  It is recommended for 2nd-6th grade, but I think I would use it more for 2nd-4th grades. This is a traditional circle game/dance that helps students learn about accent marks. The folk song is sung in Spanish. I would add more elements to the lesson to make a stronger cross curricular connection.  For example:  Mapping Puerto Rico (geography), Discussing culture (Social studies), History of Puerto Rico, etc.  Click on the link below to be connected…
