Song of the Week:
Day 1. Introduce the lyrics and have students read for recognition during pre-class.
Go over meaning of the song.
Play the song and pause every other line so that the students tell you the next word – this makes them accountable for following along.
Day 2 Play the song while they read along.
Day 3 With a partner, listen to the song and put the cut up lyrics in order.
Day 4 Students illustrate the song and then show them the video.
Day 5 During weekly quiz create a close activity, play a piece of the song and have the students fill in as they listen for a listening grade.
In addition to the song of the week, we have a steady stream of music from the transition videos. Here are the links.
Social Skills Videos:
Finally, to teach social skills in Spanish class, I have created three musical videos to demonstrate these skills. The first is how to treat a new student in class. The second is how to write an email to a teacher, and the third is the most important, asking if now is a good time before just talking at the teacher with different requests.
