dc.description.abstract I will soon be graduating from Ball State with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. I am also involved in the professional music fraternity for women called Sigma Alpha Iota. Each of these areas is a major aspect of my life; however, they never intertwine. I have never had the opportunity to combine my knowledge in a way that strengthens all three of them as a whole. Because I have chosen teaching as a career, I wanted to find a way to incorporate music and Spanish into the classroom. Through this project I was able to find a way to do this successfully. I created a series of lessons that taught my students Spanish words and phrases through singing. The lessons included the topics of counting, colors, shapes, and typical phrases. By working with my advisor, I was able to find great resources to use in my lesson in order to make them as fun and interactive as possible. This project includes my lessons, what I have learned from the experience, and how I have grown and changed as an educator.
