Cuento/Canción de la semana: Bajo el mismo sol

This song is three years old, but I am brining it back to my Spanish 2 students. They loved
"Ella" by Álvaro Soler and the story, "Un hombre un poco obsesionado", that went along with it, so I figured another song by him will be a hit as well.

We have been doing not only song of the week, but story of the week, so I wrote up a story to go along with El mismo sol. I also created a list of the vocabulario importante (and on Quizlet too) and a link to review the story on Textivate.

If you are interested in trying out story/song of the week, here is what I suggest -----> story script, vocabulario importante, cloze activity, and song translation can be found here:
  • Day 1 - Play a quick game of Quizlet Live to introduce some of the vocabulario importante. Do a listen and draw activity and then watch the video.
  • Day 2 - Do the cloze activity with the song. Go over the translation of the song. Review the story with student drawings. Start the Textivate sequence (could be homework).
  • Day 3 - Try to sing the song. Continue the Textivate sequence (could be homework).
  • Day 4 - Try to sing the song. Continue and finish the Textivate sequence (could be homework).
  • Day 5 - Try to sing the song. Do a cierto/falso quiz about the story.
OR if you want to do extend the song for more than a week (these would take 5-15 minutes of each class):

  • Day 1 - Play a quick game of Quizlet Live to introduce some of the vocabulario importante. Do a listen and draw activity and then watch the video.
  • Day 2 - Do the cloze activity with the song. Go over the translation of the song. Review the story with student drawings. 
  • Day 3 - Try to sing the song. With partners or as a class, read the story together and translate it. Start the Textivate sequence (could be homework). 
  • Day 4 - Try to sing the song. Play the marker game with the cierto/falso statements (below). Continue the Textivate sequence (could be homework).
  • Day 5 - Sing the song. Play around the world with song lyrics or sentences from the story (say a Spanish chunk and students have to translate) Continue and finish the Textivate sequence (could be homework).
  • Day 6 - Sing the song. Play Quizlet Live with the sentences. 
  • Day 7 - Sing the song. Divide students into groups of 2-4. Give them sentences from the story. They need to act out the sentence(s) and take a "Freeze Frame" picture. Have students send all pictures to you.
  • Day 8 - Sing the song. Use the pictures from the previous day to retell the story.
  • Day 9 - Sing the song. Share favorite lines of the song. Play this Kahoot Jumble.
  • Day 10 - Sing the song. Do a cierto/falso quiz (see two options below) about the story.


I am looking forward to presenting about story/song of the week this fall at TCI Maine, MaFLA, and NHAWLT!

  1. This song was a complete hit!!! I had kids singing it in class...many saying that they put it on their personal music list and some were even saying that they kept singing that song in their head. The best part came when a student who was absent said, "Why do you like this song? How do you know what it means?" The other student responded, "Because we went over it yesterday. I understand it all." While the song it fantastic, the lessons provided here made it all happen. Don't how I'm going to top this off next week.
    Thanks, Kara!

    1. Yay! Nancy, I am so glad that you had so much success with these resources. I love to see students so engaged and enthusiastic with the language and songs are, by far, the best hook to bring them in. I would suggest La Cintura next https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Alvaro-tiene-un-problema-A-mini-story-unit-based-on-La-Cintura-3736249 . It was really popular (and I think even better than El Mismo Sol). Or see more options here: http://www.ceauthres.com/2018/11/inspired-proficiency-podcast.html

      Also, thanks for commenting here!
