Who doesn't love to hear a resounding "Happy birthday!" on their special day? It's even more fun when you sing it. "¡Feliz Cumpleaños!" gives you the opportunity to wish someone a happy birthday in another language. This short, festive song will teach you and your students how to say "Happy birthday!" and "Happy birthday to you!" in Spanish.
The melody is catchy and simple to learn, and you have the option of adding claps. You could use the provided rhythm on the score, or you could make up your own. It might also be fun to add several different rhythm band instruments - rhythm sticks, claves, shakers, guiros.
The kit includes a pronunciation guide. (from Music K-8, Vol. 23, No. 3)
