Cantando y contando de diez en diez
Spanish Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Jim Nailon

Vocal      Instrumental    

This song is available on Jim Nailon's "Canciones de mi clase II"

Teaching tips from Jim Nailon: 
This song simply combines counting by 10s in Spanish to the music of the traditional Mexican Hat dance. Students enjoy the challenge of going faster, which motivates them to learn to count by tens. I make my students learn to sing it before I let them dance; otherwise they have too much fun dancing and don't learn their 10s. The traditional dance also adds some Mexican culture to the classroom. If they can dance as they sing up to tempo, they should have a nice memory tool for their 10s.

(Tune: Mexican Hat Dance)

Vamos a cantar.
Cantamos los números.
Vamos a contar.
Contamos de diez en diez. (Repitan)

Hay cero, diez, veinte, treinta,      (0, 10, 20, 30)
Cuarenta, cincuenta, sesenta,      (40, 50, 60)
Diez, veinte, treinta, cuarenta,      (10, 20, 30, 40)
Cincuenta, sesenta. ¡Bien! (Repitan)      (50, 60)

Cincuenta, sesenta, setenta.      (50, 60, 70)
Sesenta, setenta, ochenta.      (60, 70, 80)
Setenta, ochenta, noventa.      (70, 80, 90)
Ochenta, noventa, cien.      (80, 90, 100)

Hay cero, diez, veinte, treinta,
Cuarenta, cincuenta, sesenta.
Diez, veinte, treinta, cuarenta,
Cincuenta, sesenta. ¡Bien! ¡Olé!
