When I think of Daddy Yankee, I don’t immediately think of school-appropriate. However, his song, “Limbo”, is a very catchy song AND school-appropriate! When I first introduced the song, we had a bit of fun with it and did the limbo in class. This song, by far, is the most requested song to be played when my students are working on group activities and I play music in the background. They can’t get enough of it!
On Good Friday, when we were missing several students, I thought this would be a perfect occasion to bring “Limbo” back and have a bit more fun with it. Just Dance recently came out with a game that features this song on it. A unique feature to this song is that it is a partner song. My students had a blast when we got to do Just Dance to this song at the end of class. It was another great opportunity to get them interested in Latin music.
