http://youtu.be/y3D2s7DyS0U Sesame Street - a video counting to 9. Unfortunately they count in English but the music and dancing is flamenco.
http://youtu.be/6-Fy124VWCY Toy Story - Buzz and Jessie dance flamenco. Would be great for introducing students to flamenco and then showing the more authentic videos after.

There aren't a lot of books out there for flamenco but here are a few good options.
¡Olé flamenco! This is a great resource for older students. My kids will be doing a research project in Library class and this is one book I will have available for them.
El fandango de Lola This book comes in English and Spanish with a CD. Spanish Playground has some great resources to go along with the Spanish version here.
Spain booklet A great booklet your students can color and read from Teacher Pay Teachers. It has 11 pages with facts about geography, flamenco, football, bullfighting, and the Conquistador. It's in English so I will probably share with my classroom teachers and let them decide if they want to use this resource or not.
I still need to talk to my Art teacher about how we might combine her standards with something flamenco related but here a few pages with ideas for flamenco crafts. These could be done with the classroom teachers as well.
How to make castanets These are cooler than the ones we made last year in Spanish Club with paper plates and pennies (although my kids loved their paper plate/penny castanets!)
Fans, paper dolls, and collages Several craft ideas here.
A box guitar How to make a box guitar.
Now I just need to get some costumes and I'll be set!We'll be dancing and learning the jaleos in my class. Happy planning for Hispanic Heritage Month!
