This song and activity packet will help students master some questions and answers about basic information in Spanish, such as: ¿Cómo te llamas? ¿Cómo estás? ¿De dónde eres? The Listening Comprehension activities and repetition will help them acquire the information, and the follow up Collaborative Activity will help them apply it right away!
What's included in the bundle:
- an mp3 file with the song "Mucho gusto"
- two printable Listening Comprehension Activities to be used as the students listen to the song. You can use both on the same day, a different one on different days for extra reinforcement and follow up, or if you teach more than one level, you may use one for one level and the other one for a different level
- a printable or projectable sheet with the song lyrics, so you and your students can sing along, and to use to check their work for one of the Listening Comprehension Activities
- a printable Cooperative Learning Activity, for students to work in pairs to apply and practice their knowledge of all of the topics listed below. The Cooperative Learning Activity focuses on using the knowledge in a meaningful way by speaking, writing, and listening to their peers.
