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!
