I’m back! And loving it! (Who knew teaching would feel like a vacation compared to being a SAHM! Shout out to all you mama’s who stay at home. More power to you!)
I’ve been busy trying to revamp some partially done movie talks, classroom posters, flash cards etc.
Currently in my Spanish 2’s we’re working through a movie talk which correlates with ‘Jack Jack Ataca‘. I created an entire unit where students get repetition of various structures and reinforce vocabulary. I wrote this in the past tense. It is also a great way for students to practice identifying when/how to use both the imperfect and the preterite.
How are you reinforcing the past tense through CI???
Vivir mi vida la la la la….
When I first heard this song I thought….”I MUST USE THIS!!!” It is SO catchy! Definitely something my students will enjoy.
I whipped up these snazzy worksheets to go along with them.
They will have a cloze activity where they are listening to the song and trying to fill in the blanks.
We will discuss the song, the meaning, perspective etc. Then students will illustrate key vocabulary words from the song.
Later students will practice writing sentences using vocabulary words from the song.
Finally I have created an article from some authentic sources about Marc Anthony. My mini geniuses will read through these and answer comprehension questions.
What Spanish Songs Do YOU love/use in your classroom?
This week in my Spanish 1’s we did a movie talk with the movie alma.
I LOooooOVE using movie talk in my classroom! The kids are engaged and being immersed in Spanish! Together we “circled” and wrote the narrative to the ALMA movie. We continued using the structures found in the narrative throughout the week. I also created several worksheets for the students to practice and reinforce the learned structures.
Do you use movie talks? What are some follow up activities you like to do?
