Valentine’s Day Songs for Elementary Spanish

El Día de San Valentín, also known as “El Día del Amor y la Amistad” or  “El Día de los Enamorados” is celebrated in the United States, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Cuba, Spain, Panamá, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic on February 14th.
With posts like this one I only hope I am saving some teachers time on the internet. I teach at the elementary level, so the songs I choose are basic and sometimes with little vocabulary. Here are my top choices:


El Día del Amor y la Amistad by Music with Sara (Bilingual)


Un amigo me enseño by Baby Radio


Los Corazones Amigos by César García


Corazón de melón by “Valentina y los valientes”


Nuestra Amistad by Plim Plim


Te Quiero by Barney


Te Quiero by Spanish Together

Here is a free resource to help you celebrate in your class.  Please stop by my store to grab it!

Have fun!

Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Spanish Class




As Valentine’s day approaches, we are looking for activities and ideas to use with our students. There are few moments in the classroom to use phrases like this one and Valentine’s day is giving us a great opportunity to put language into context. This short and simple song will help your students learn two simple phrases that they can use at school with their friends or at home with their families.

Te quiero,
Te quiero,
Tú eres mi corazón.
Te quiero,
Te quiero,
Tú eres mi corazón.


After teaching the song your students can practice colors with this fun freebie that includes a memory game and coloring pages.  Download the free game and coloring pages HERE!

¡Feliz Día de San Valentín!

El Día del Amor y la Amistad en Colombia (Colombia’s Day of Love and Friendship)

Every third Saturday in September,  Colombia celebrates “El Día del Amor y la Amistad”. It’s a day to let family and friends know how much you love them and appreciate them. People usually give chocolates, cards, and flowers to friends and family members. In other cases, it’s also an excuse to party and get together  to celebrate (Colombians tend to be pretty good at finding reasons to enjoy each other’s company!). 

What a great moment to bring a cultural celebration to your classroom. I have created a coloring page with a heart ready to use in your classroom this week. For this activity,  bring a map to your class, and invite your children to find the country where they live, and then to find Colombia. Introduce the colors of the
Colombian flag and then color in the heart using those colors.

You can take this as an opportunity to introduce simple sentences to express gratitude and love:

Feliz Día del Amor y la Amistad
Amigos por siempre
Tú eres mi mejor amigo/a.
Te quiero
