Counting by Tens in Spanish to the song: Gotas de diez en diez
Have you ever been caught in a rainstorm?Did the drops hit you one by one, or did you get wet quickly?
Here’s a song that catches you up in the rain as you learn to count by tens in Spanish. In Spanish we say, “Counting by Tens” as “Contar de diez en diez.”
Our song from the CD Mi guitarrí: Spanish Songs for Kids is called “Gotas de diez en diez.” The English translation of the lyrics would be: Today, I see the sky and it’s going to rain. Now I see the drops, falling and falling. Ten, twenty, thirty, etc.
The melody is catchy and your students will love to practice counting by tens as they try not to get wet!
