Learn Letter Sounds in Spanish with Canta las Letras & 123Andrés

Friday, June 7th, 2019

 

 

Canta las Letras is a fantastic new album by 123Andrés that incorporates the importance of learning letter sounds and reinforcing Spanish, with fun, upbeat songs and lyrics.  As a teacher and parent, I think this album is just amazing!  Whether children are learning Spanish as a second language, or reinforcing their first, the importance of mastering letters sounds is so relevant and beneficial to their language development.  The songs are arranged in alphabetical order, but kids and parents may personalize the experience and reinforce language learning by shuffling the songs to reflect their favorite sounds and letters.   The cheerful songs and easy to learn lyrics, are perfect for kids of all ages.  This album is an excellent musical tool, as it has songs for each letter of the alphabet, and the songs can be used as steppingstones for reading and listening development.   Canta las Letras is a perfect supplement for my young students who are learning the letter sounds and are also bilingual learners.  Coming soon: there will even be lyrics, translations and a  learning guide for the songs here.  As with his other resources, Canta las Letras is an engaging tool that allows students, teachers, and parents alike to have fun while learning and teaching!

Latin Grammy -winning 123 Andrés has released a new album of Spanish lullabies that your kids are going to love!  He takes listeners on an imaginary trip to South America with soothing sounds and sweet rhythms.  The peaceful sounds of the Andes region are so relaxing!  We played La luna during our Bilingual Fun preschool classes , and the children were mesmerized and loved the sounds of these lullabies.  We love using music to enhance early language development, and this new album is an perfect enrichment tool. Gracias 123 Andrés, we found our new naptime music!

The album features guest vocalists from Bolivia, Argentina, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, and the US.  I loved all the different lyrics, rhythms, and sounds of these soothing songs!

I am also excited to learn that 123 Andrés is partnering with diaper banks in the United States!  Having clean diapers is ital. for a baby to grow healthy and strong.  For this reason, $1 from every copy of La luna purchased during the first year of it’s release will go to support the Greater DC Diaper Bank and the National Diaper Bank Network.  ¡Fantástico!
