Elefantes facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

"Elefantes" (Spanish for "Elephants") is a popular Hispanic children's song similar to the American song "99 Bottles of Beer".

In Education

Many students in Spanish I and II classes learn this song to help with their vocabulary and grammar.

  • In Spanish I, the counting part of the song may help.
  • In the case of the words veía, araña, and resistía, the tildes (accent marks) help the students with their accents and how to pronounce the words when they are present.
  • The verbs ir and caber are irregular in the preterite tense, so the teacher may tell the students to sing the song as if it happened last week.
  • Many young ESL students, or even grown immigrants, learn the song to help with their English.
