If you have MacMillan/McGraw Hill "Spotlight on Music" you can find this song on First Grade CD 9:28.
"Mi Cuerpo, mi cuerpo hace música!
Mi cuerpo, mi cuerpo hace música!
Mis manos hacen (clap, clap, clap)
Mis pies hacen (stomp, stomp, stomp)
Mi boca hace 'La, la, la!'
Mi cuerpo hace 'Cha, cha, cha!'"
I have created a SMARTboard lesson to teach the song and vocabulary. Download the SMARTboard file from my wiki www.deetillermusic.wikispaces.com
