(Grades 1-6, 40 Minutes) What a wonderful way to teach Spanish, music and the transportation unit at the same time! This charming musical play for elementary students takes Santa and the elves to Mexico to vacation and to learn Spanish. While there, they also learn the North Pole is snowbound, so they begin examining all the methods of Mexican transportation for their return-only to find a problem with each. Finally, they decide to set up the toy workshop there until Rudolph gets through with the sleigh.
This delightful story-told in rhyme-features 21 Spanish words and six unison/2-part songs. Staging and costume guides along with a pronunciation glossary are included in the Director's Score. The A/P CD features Latin percussion instruments and Mariachi brass. The inter-curricular possibilities are endless... so will be the applause!
