Sing-A-Lingo is an educational company that helps parents, teachers and gift-givers teach children a second language. As a Latina, teaching my daughter Spanish is very important to me. I grew up in a Bilingual home and I want to make sure my daughter is raised that way as well.
When you listen to the songs on the CD you realize how easy it is to learn the songs and easy to follow along in English and Spanish as the words are included in the CD Case. The concept is to promote learning through music and every day activities and I totally agree. Let’s face it, we all know how hard it can be to get our kids to do a simple task sometimes but add some music and make it a game and it’s a different story. Buggy has taught me that learning needs to be fun so our days are usually spent laughing and singing and that is exactly what Sing-A-Lingo En Mi Casa is all about.
The CD includes a few of the songs that we already sing at home such as “Donde Estas/Where Are You” and “Lava las Manos/Wash Your Hands” and of course “Abre el Rerigerador/Open the Refrigerator”. These are all things that we say and do every day so why not make it fun. I love that we have been playing it a lot in the car replacing the DVD’s for a while. One of our favorite’s is “Araña Pequeña/Itsy Bitsy Spider”. I actually didn’t know it in Spanish and I’m so happy that now we are able to sing it in both languages.
When you check out their website, you will also find that they offer some great tips. This is found under the Resources tabs. One of my favorite tips that we do at home is saying your numbers in Spanish when climbing up the stairs. Sometimes we “tiptoe” up the stairs and count in a whisper. Buggy loves this and thinks it’s a great game.
Sing-A-Lingo was started by Pina & Michael Madera who are Spanish speaking parents who raised their kids bilingual. The album En Mi Casa is the recipient of many awards such as Parent’s Choice and iParenting Media.
If you have a preschooler or an older toddler and want to teach them Spanish then you will want to check out Sina-A-Lingo. You and your kids will love it. You can view their video on their website and follow them on Twitter.
