Buenos días: A lovely, simple greetings poem for your early Spanish learners

Buenos días simple greetings Spanish poem for childrenAccessing the routines they thrive on

Is your Spanish learning time incorporating the target language from greetings to farewells?

I frequently tell teachers that my favorite aspect of our print classroom curriculum, Calico Spanish Classic (beginner level) and Accelerate (developing level), is the way the songs help teachers take advantage of routine to stay in the target language.  If you’ve taught very young learners for long, you’ve learned that they thrive on routine.  Using songs, poems, and dichos to change the everyday routines to Spanish were the key to my being able to stay more in the target language, and I’m sure this is a major reason why it took until November or so for my preschoolers to say in shock to me, “You mean you can talk normal?”

Calico resources from greetings to class end

Our songs like the greeting song “Hola a todos,” the transition song “Señor reloj” and the ending song “Adiós” are fantastic resources to help you keep your elementary, preschool, kindergarten, and homeschool learners in Spanish from start to finish.

And now, try adding our newest resource, this simple greetings poem, to your Spanish learning routine. Let us know what you think!  And then, check out our similar poem for saying farewell, “Dame un abrazo.”

Bendita sea la luz del día
Y el placer que aquí nos guía
Tenga usted muy buenos días.
