Remember Days of the Week in Spanish with this song

Alphabet building blocksYour students may grown up singing the children’s nursery rhyme “Frère Jacques” (known in English as “Are you sleeping?”) or one of its translations Chinese and a number of other languages.

If students know the song, use the same tune to teach them days of the week en español:

Lunes, martes
lunes, martes
miércoles, miércoles
jueves, viernes, sábado
jueves, viernes, sábado
do-mingo
do-mingo

The song stresses “domingo” on the first syllable, rather than the second, but it’s still a great way to help beginners learn the days of the week, using a tune they already know.
