Bubble songs in Spanish

I recently translated and started singing two new bubble songs in my programs:

Adios Burbujas (a goodbye song I learned in grad school from one of my mentors)

Adiós burbujas, adiós burbujas
Ya nos vamos, ya nos vamos
Nos vemos otro día, nos vemos otro día
Adiós, adiós

Burbujas en el aire (a translation of this song)

Hay burbujas en el aire, en el aire,
Hay burbujas en el aire, en el aire,
Hay burbujas por acá,
Hay burbujas por allá,
Hay burbujas en el aire, en el aire

Hay burbujas muy arriba, arriba
Hay burbujas muy arriba, arriba
Hay burbujas muy arriba,
Muy arriba en el cielo,
Hay burbujas muy arriba, arriba

Hay burbujas muy abajo, muy abajo,
Hay burbujas muy abajo, muy abajo,
Hay burbujas muy abajo,
Y me tocan los pies,
Hay burbujas muy abajo, muy abajo

Family Fun Day: storytime + dance party

Last month I hosted a family fun event for our Early Head Start program. I tweaked the program based on what worked well last time and to better fit the younger audience. Here is what I came up with:

Bubbles. As kids finished eating (lunch provided by EHS) I had out a few quiet toys and blew a bajillion bubbles to engage the kids while grownups finished eating and got cleaned up. Continue reading Family Fun Day: storytime + dance party

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, Vamos a la luna!

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom is one of my storytime favorites. I swear, this song is preschooler crack. They ALWAYS request it before I even say what song we’re going to do. We go to the moon, we go to the stars, we go to Mars or Saturn, sometimes we go super fast and we always go back to earth really quietly so we can read another story.

This year, I’ve been adding in more Spanish to my outreach storytimes, and recently a kid asked for Zoom Zoom Zoom in Spanish! I couldn’t find a Spanish version anywhere, so I created my own. Here you go!

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom: Vamos a la luna

Zoom, zoom, zoom
Vamos a la luna.
Zoom, zoom, zoom
Vamos a la luna.

Si quieres viajar conmigo
Súbete al cohete

Zoom, zoom, zoom
Vamos a la luna.
En 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
¡Despegar!

Stellar stories: books + art (the synesthesia edition)

Stellar stories is a new after school storytime for big kids program. I read a few books and then the kids get to do some sort of art project. I was already doing this for one of our local after school groups, and this year I opened it up to all kids. I’m excited for the chance to share some of the longer and more advanced picture books with older kids (K and up).
