Do you need a fun way to practice simple present? Do your students want to learn a little bit about Mexican culture? Would you like to teach a lesson that combines these two things with music and vibrant images of Mexican folk culture?
This ready to go lesson plan features a famous Mexican cabaret-singer: Regina Orozco and her beautiful ode to Mexico: Solo hay que quererte un poquito más, mi Mexico. The lyrics begin with Regina dedicating the song and her voice to her home. As she opens her heart, she sings about the spirit of Mexican culture.
The 2-page lesson plan follows a 10 slide powerpoint through the class from beginning to end with question and activities to grab students interest, pre-teach vocabulary, and help them enjoy the music while also learning. Finally, there are a variety of homework suggestions included or ideas to expand learning.
This lesson plan is appropriate for all ages. While it is designed as a way to practice simple present in Spanish, it can easily be used for review. Or you can expand on the material for many more advanced level activities.
