This week, the Grade 2/3 classes were learning some Spanish and having some fun making a musical burrito on the instruments. Lesson suggestions from Artie Almeida in Mallet Madness Strikes Again.

We also had spent some time in December learning songs from South America, including several Spanish songs. Here's a fun one with some choreography called My Amigos from Plank Road Publishing. What kind of flavour is the music? Can you identify the Latin American instruments in the song?
