New (free) Story/Song of the Week for Novices: Atrévete

Update 1/25/20: Here is a TeachVid resource to review the song.

I really like this new video and song by Nicky Jam and Sech, "Atrévete." It is a sweet, romantic song and a cute video. (Yes, it is another typical hetero-love story video, but I still like it and I think students will too.) Check it out here:
So, I made a slideshow to use for story/song of the week. Click here if you want to make a copy of it for yourself and adapt it. And this doc has the text to adapt if you would like.

There are lots of things that you could do with what I am sharing (listen to the podcast linked here), but here are some recommendations:

  • Go over the goals of this story/song of the week.
  • Play Quizlet Live to give a preview of the important vocabulary (there is also a list in the doc). Note: Students do not need to know all of the vocabulary before the story. They will acquire it as you tell the story and from the activities that they do.
  • Use slides 5-8 to co-create a story with the class. Do this orally.
  • Use slides 9-11 to write out the story with the class.
  • Explain that the story that they will hear is based on a music video (slide 12).
  • Tell the students about the two singers (slides 13-14).
  • Play Quizlet Live to review information about Nicky Jam and Sech.
  • Tell the story. Use the script in the doc
  • After slide 38, ask students to write some possible solutions. Students can write them in English, Spanish, and/or Spanglish. Type some of the suggested solutions on slides 40-41. Discuss each one.
  • Show the video! 
  • Do the cloze activity (in  doc) with the song and go over the translation. Try to sing it for a week or two.
  • Tell the story the next day with the text on the slideshow. Students can translate with partners or as a class.
  • Have students review the text with textivate.

  1. The story that you write together with the students will be different than the one in the video. Did you talk about the differences? I'm learning about TPRS, this isn't TPRS, right?

    1. Hello. Yes, we did. And, you are correct, this isn't TPRS - TPRS is a a very structured way of teaching. However, this is TCI (Teaching with Comprehensible Input) :)

      Here is a great blog post from Martina Bex

  2. Thank you ! i love your resources. If you share something for free what are the copyrights for making a nearpod with you google slides and share it with my students?

    1. You're welcome and thank you!

      If you share something, I would just ask that you keep my name on it somewhere.

      I really need to add a Creative Commons license on all my stuff. Thank you for asking this quesiton!

  3. Thank you so much! I appreciate the completeness of all the resources, and the sweet song. It´s catchy and a reasonable level for kids to hear the words.
