My students LOVED our Lotería de Navidad unit last year. Justino was definitely the favorite (free resources here, thanks to Martina Bex), but Carmina and the 250th anniversary commercial were highly engaging stories too. And Martina's Breakout Box for Carmina was the perfect last day activity before break.
Here are the resources that I will use for the unit. Some are free and some are paid:
- (free) The Spanish Christmas Lottery is a tradition that dates back more than 250 years. This commercial, this presentation, and these activities could help to teach about that.
- (free) Justino was the 2015 commercial and it is adorable. Here is a slideshow (based on Martina Bex's free resources) to teach about the lottery (students know what a décimo will be important for Danielle). Here is another slideshow that Elena López created, but with the story told using the first person.
- (paid) Carmina was the 2016 commercial and you can find resources for that here. And here is an Edpuzzle for that commercial.
- (free) Martina Bex also created a Breakout for that commercial.
- (paid) The resources (see description below) for Danielle are here (this is such a bargain!!). (Or you can get them with the Carmina resources if you purchase those.)
- The 2014 commercial is also a good one too. But I don't have any resources for that so we will just watch that one.

- ¿Cómo son mis tradiciones relacionadas con los días festivos similares y/o diferentes de una de España?
- I can describe a the products, practices, and perspectives of a holiday tradition in Spain.
- I can demonstrate that I understand four stories about a holiday tradition in a variety of ways.
- I can compare and contrast my cultural products, practices and perspectives related to a holiday to those of a holiday tradition in Spain.
The wonderful Elena López and I have been continuing to work on the Anuncio de la Lotería de Navidad: Danielle! It is a commercial, but really it is like a short movie (almost 20 minutes long). I wrote the story in Comprehensible Spanish (probably for level 2 or 3+) and created a slideshow (with 121 slides!) with the text of the story and screen shots. Here is a preview of the slideshow:
Elena and I have divided the story up into four parts and created some activities to go along with each part. So far, we have created (all of which is linked in the presentation):
- four Quizlet Diagrams
- two Quizlets with comprehension questions
- Cierto/Falso sentences
- Picture slides to do re-tells, listen and identify pic, and/or cierto/falso
- one Quizlet with fill-ins and matching for parts of sentences
- a Quizizz (click here to see it)
- "¿Quién lo dijo? ¿Quién lo hizo? ¿Quién lo pensó?" activities for each part
- Update - 11/23/17 - A lot more has been added ----> see here.
Arianne Dowd is also working on exploring some of the Cultural Products (caga tió!), Practices (cava, adeu), and Perspectives in the ad/movie. See below for some things that I have encountered.
And here is an interesting perspective that could be talked about!
