¡Yo ya!
Teaching Proper Classroom Behavior in Spanish
Jim Rule


This song is available Jim Rule's Too Much Fun - ¡Demasiada Diversíon!


With apologies to Yo-Yo Ma and any girl named "Mimi" which is a beautiful name. I am referring to children who shout out when they want to volunteer or are done with their work. This a free style dance. When the music stops, they freeze with one hand in the air, mouths closed, eyes on you, until the music starts again. When the song stops, they will be ready to follow your next instruction. 

By the way, the phrase - YO YA - is short for "Yo ya acabé." which means "I already finished." Do you have any students who are always done first and announce it loudly and repeatedly? Well, that was my inspiration. -- Jim Rule.

Yo no me llamo “Yo ya”
Yo no me llamo “Yo ya” 
por que yo tengo la mano arriba.

Tengo la mano arriba 
antes de hablar.
Yo acabé mi trabajo. 
Yo hago así. 


(FREEZE with one hand in the air, mouths closed, eyes on you, until the music starts again)

Yo quiero ser ayudante....

Nadie puede escuchar...
