“Un Pulpito” by Charlotte Diamond
available on iTunes
“Un Pulpito” is Charlotte Diamond’s Spanish version
of herwonderful song “Slippery Fish.” I think it’s even
more funthan the English version!
In “Un Pulpito,” children use their hands to act the parts of a sardine, an octopus (pulpito), a tuna fish, a shark, and a whale. The Spanish words are simple and remarkably easy for young children to pick up. But what makes this song a real gem is its hilarious surprise ending that makes children explode with laughter, every single time!
Charlotte Diamond is one of the most talented people in children’s music. This is my favorite song of hers, but you’ll want to share many more with your students!
