TPT Sale - Black Friday through Sunday!

I am having a sale in TPT store and it starts today (Black Friday) and ends on Sunday.

I really love my most recent products. I loved comprehensifying and extending these four authentic resources and they will make super engaging units that incorporate the 5Cs and the three modes of communication.

There are lots of other good deals in my store too!

Crowd Sourcing for a Spanish 4+ unit: Ocho Apellidos Catalanes

Have you seen the movie "Ocho Apellidos Catalanes"? It is available on Netflix. It is funny and full of Spanish cultural products, practices, and perspectives. (Note: This might not be appropriate for all school settings and I will definitely skip one of the first scenes!)

I plan on using this movie next week. After this movie, we are going to get into our Lotería Navideña unit. Because there are some toques catalanes in the Danielle commercial this year, this movie will be a good way to delve into Spain and its comunidades autónomas and learn more about Spain. 

This movie is the sequel to "Ocho Apellidos Vascos." You can click here to see Bethanie Drew and Karen Goering ACTFL 2017 presentation about that movie. I got some good ideas for my unit from them and I am sharing them for free here

I really want to show this movie in Spanish with Spanish subtitles, but it is definitely challenging! So, in order to prepare my students to do that, students will read about parts of the movie before watching it. Then they will watch the movie in segments and do some follow up activities (see below). I have started writing about the movie and also including some quotes from the movie (you can see what I have done so far on page 12 here).  I don't think I will have the time and energy to do this for the whole movie...

So, here is the crowdsourcing part... I am looking for teachers to help write out parts of the movie (similar to what I have done so far). This doc is open for anyone to edit. If you are interested, please jump on the doc and help out! If you do help out please leave your name and email in the doc and I will send you my lotería stuff for free (or anything else from my TPT store).

After watching parts of the movie (still not sure how I will divide it), students will have to do the following:

Reacciones, interpretaciones, y otras cosas - Después de ver cada parte, tienes que hacer una de estas cosas. No puedes repetir.
  • __________  Haz un Snapchat o post de Instagram como si fueras un personaje de la película y compártelo con la clase.
  • __________  Haz un Snapchat o post de Instagram explica algo, es una reacción a algo, y/o muestra algo cultural (3 Ps).
  • __________  Escribe un resumen de la parte que vimos.
  • __________  Escribe dos verdades y una mentira sobre la parte.
  • __________  Escribe una predicción sobre lo que va a pasar.
  • __________  Investiga un producto, práctica, o perspectiva cultural que viste en esta parte de la película y escribe lo que encontraste.
  • __________  Dibuja algo que puede ser una decoración para la clase.
  • __________  Escribe 3-5 preguntas sobre la parte de la película.
  • __________  ¿Qué cambiarías de la parte que vimos?
  • __________  ¿Qué harías tú si fueras un personaje de la película?
  • __________  Escribe una entrada del diario de una persona.
  • __________  ¿Qué quieres que un personaje de la película haga?
  • __________  Escribe una cita importante que un personaje dijo y describe porque es importante.
  • __________  Escribe unas palabras nuevas y/o interesantes mientras miras la película.
  • __________  Dibuja el ojo de un personaje y lo que ve y/o dibuja la cabeza de un pesonaje con globos de texto de lo que piensa.

Infografías de la Lotería y Danielle

Teach about la lotería navideña de España? If so, here is are two basic (and free) activities to do with two inforgrafías about la lotería. These would be great to use before you get into the ads/stories. Click on the images below to see the infografías.


Also, Elena López, Arianne Dowd, and I have compiled the Danielle (the 2017 Spanish lottery ad) resources and you can purchase them here! There is a ton of stuff in there!
