Parallel Story for "22 otra vez": El Sr. Indiferente

I saw this video posted in a Facebook group and thought it would make an excellent parallel story to "22 otra vez".  

So, I wrote up a basic Novice script that tells the story of the video. I tried to use some of the vocabulary from the Novice version of "22 otra vez".  Students could do a Listen and Draw activity or a Read and Draw/Summarize activity or both. After doing one or both of those, students would watch the video.

Here is a basic slideshow with screenshots (click here to make a copy):

Novice AND Intermediate Unit: La Lotería Navideña 2018

I have worked very hard the last few days (thanks to a snow day!) to create a Novice AND an Intermediate units for the new Lotería Navideña ad "22 otra vez." And I am very excited for what I have come up with! You can purchase it here on TPT. (Also, Maris Hawkins and Arianne Dowd will have another version, soon! It will be in between my two versions.)

If you haven't seen the commercial yet, here it is:


Here are some examples of assessments (I have included 6-8 assessments in all modes of communication for both Novice and Intermediate):
And here are previews of the two versions of the story:

La Lotería: Dreaming Spanish Edpuzzle and a preview of resources!

Update: This unit is done! It is for Intermediates and you can find it here on TPT.

Maris Hawkins, Arianne Dowd and I are working on some great stuff for the new Spanish lotería commercial: 22 otra vez. If you haven't seen it, check it out:

We are working on readings and other activities for Novices and Intermediates and we will be sharing soon-ish!

To start this unit, I am going to have my students do this Edpuzzle to learn about the Spanish lotería. Thanks to Pablo for making this video!

After that, they will do the Task Talk with students and as a whole class discussion.

Then, we will delve into the reading, other activities (¿Quién lo dijo/hizo?, Quizlet Live, Gimkit, Kahoot Jumble, Quizizz, and more), and then finally watch the commercial!


And here a preview of what we are working on. This is the Intermediate version. We have broken the commercial into four parts. This part of the slideshow has the beginning activities and the reading for part 1 (up to 1:13). You will see that the text fades in when you click, that is so teachers can do picture talk if they want or read to students (hear first, read later).
