Spanish Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes
Grade Level(s): K, 1-2, 3-5
By: Christopher Murray, Second Grade Teacher

Students will use the spanish terms for parts of the body in the traditional "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes."

Objectives:

Students will use the spanish terms for parts of the body in the traditional "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes."

Materials:

  • Recording of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes"
  • Spanish Words:
    • cabeza = head
    • hombros = shoulders
    • piernas = knees
    • pies = toes (actually pies means foot or feet and dedos de pies is toes, but doesn't fit in the rhythm of the song)
    • ojos = eyes
    • orejas = ears
    • boca = mouth
    • nariz = nose

Plan:

  1. Do the English version of Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes several times so students become familiar with the tune and order.
  2. Next, introduce the Spanish terms for the body parts one part at a time.
  3. Now slowly use the Spanish terms with the tune making sure that everyone is touching the right part at the right time.
  4. Once students become good at it, challenge them by going faster each time.
  5. I also chose 2 students to come to the front of the room each day and lead the class in the song.
