March 23-27, 2020

Last week, I had several elementary students ask me for the Youtube links to the Spanish music videos that I played in class this year.  So.... here they are!  For this week's lesson, click on each video and see if you can remember the "backstory" to each video that I told you in class.  If you remember, explain it to a family member and ask them to enjoy watching the video with you.  The last one doesn't really have a "backstory" except that You are never too old to enjoy Sesame Street!
