I am looking at your Princess and the Barrio Boy packet. I am showing the movie in a first semester level 1 course. They know little Spanish at this point.

The story in this movie is very much like the Little Mermaid so that would be fine for your students. However, the Spanish may be difficult for level 1 students.

No worries! Zip Files can be tricky if you have never worked with them before.

Here is a link for the instructions from TPT.
https://support.teacherspayteachers.com/What-a-ZIP-file-c46-a88.html

If their instructions do not work, try this:
To extract files from a zipped compressed folder

1. Open My Computer, and then locate the compressed folder.

2. Do one of the following:
•To extract a single file or folder, double-click the compressed folder to open it. Then, drag the file or folder from the compressed folder to a new location.

•To extract all files or folders, right-click the compressed folder, and then click Extract All. In the Compressed (zipped) Folders Extraction Wizard, specify where you want to store the extracted files.

If that does not work, please contact us at sparkenthusiasm@gmail.com and we will take care of you.

Buyer re: Real Women Have Curves Movie Packet in Spanish
Hi! I'm curious how well this will work with my current unit. I see that you have listed the following themes:
~ Eating Disorders Among Hispanics
~ Obesity and Health Care Among Hispanics
My unit is about self esteem and body image, and the negative influence that media can have by providing false images as beauty ideals. How many of the 60 pages would work well with this unit do you think? Is this a good movie for this unit, or can you think of another that might work well?
Thanks so much.
January 24, 2014 Report inappropriate comment
sparkenthusiasm
sparkenthusiasm  (TpT Seller)
Of all of the movies we have watched for our Spanish students, this is the one that most closely illustrates the themes you wish to convey. There is cultural information in the packet that covers the themes we mention in the description. There is a pretest to see what students know (or think they know) regarding topics such as human trafficking, teen preganancy among Hispanics, college graduation rates among Latinos, etc. There are scenes in the movie where the main character is exploring her sense of self and her self-esteem. There are journal topics in the unit that relate to these themes and there are songs that deal with this theme as well as the plight of workers in the maquiladores. Best of luck to you!

My students enjoyed the game, but how can I reduce the number of answers I am seeking on an individual question, since not all questions have 8 good answers? Also, if a 3rd strike is selected, the game proceeded to the next question, instead of providing an opportunity for the steal. We learned not to select the third strike, but is there another way around this? Thanks!

You can just delete the answer boxes on the answer screen. Do not delete any other slides because it will mess up the hyperlinks. Always click on the strike, no where else on the screen. Email us if we may be of further assistance.

I am not sure. Generally you want to save a copy (or picture) in a pdf because if you try to put it in a document it generally messes up the formatting. I would try re-downloading the file from TPT (which you can do for free) to see if it will then allow you to save it as something different. I would also try the support on TPT, they generally know how to open every file in every program.

Buyer re: Maria Full of Grace Spanish Movie Guide and Colombia Unit
Are there inappropriate scenes here for my 10th graders?

I would watch the movie first, since I am not well acquainted with your school. There are no inappropriate sexual scenes, but there is foul language and drug trade themes.

Hi. I just bought this packet and I'm excited to share it with my students. Are there any scenes that are inappropriate for my students. In other packets you have listed where the inappropriate scenes are. Please let me know. Thank you.

There is one scene that is inappropriate. It is about 7 or 8 minutes in. It is right after Sugar arrives home and practices his spike curve ball.

I have not yet had a chance to preview this movie; I've heard it is a bit intense in parts. WOuld you recommend it for a level III class?

Yes, I would recommend it for a level 3 class. We have a preview of it at our website if you would like to check it out. Go to the Teacher Resources section. It is also available at most local libraries. I would recommend previewing it first to see if it is right for your students.

Buyer re: Body Parts Bulletin Board and Flash Cards in Spanish!
Hello, I just bought this product and I cannot access it because it says its a zipped file. Can you please help me?

You should have a program to extract the files on your computer to open it. We use zip files so we are able to include many files in one product. Here is advice from my tech friends on the web:
All you have to do is double click on the file, then on the side after you open it, it says:
Extract All Files
Then extract it, so you can open files from there.
Let us know if you have any more difficulties! sparkenthusiasm@gmail.com!

Ed B. re: Spanish Creative Writing and Journal Unit
Hello. First I want to say that your products are by FAR the best on this or any site. I am humbled by your work. Anyway, for the journal writing activity, Do you have a rubric to score these? I did something like this last year but grading was too hard.
Thank you so much.

Hi:
I purchased your familly fued game. Can you please give me some idea of the specific types of questions you might ask for level 1 and 2. I'm thinking about the actual tv game show; The format of the questions they used would be fine for advanced speakers , but not so much for beginers.
Thank you
Ezra

Hello, Ezra. I am so glad you asked that question. :0) We already have several versions of this game with various categories created for you. What a timesaver, no? Here is a link for an example game with questions about family, pets, and descriptive adjectives. I use this version with my level one kids. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Spanish-Family-Feud-Game-Family-Pets-and-Descriptive-Adjectives
Some example questions that we use are: What clothing do people wear when they go on vacation to the mountains? What are some popular pets that people in the United States own? Like I mentioned, there are versions we have already created that include questions about such topics as clothing, body parts, reflexive verbs, etc. Please let us know if we can help out any further. Have a great school year and thank you so much for your purchase.
