PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

While the song “Eres tú” by Mocedades is very retro (from 1973), my students have always loved it… they even requested it at a school dance last year and sang along in Spanish!

This activity goes well with introduction of the verb “ser,” as it practices the tú form throughout the song. In addition to practicing this verb, the lyrics use a series of similes to compare the speaker’s love interest to other things such as bread, water and fire. This lesson not only reinforces the verb “ser,” but introduces some new vocabulary, establishes what a cognate is, and supports what they have learned about similes and other figurative language by asking them to examine what the singer is saying about the one she loves.

This listing includes song lyrics worksheet, activity to analyze similes, answers keys to both, and a suggested lesson plan.

Goals: SWBAT use the verb ser in the tú form to speak to someone else. SWBAT recognize cognates of Spanish and English. SWBAT analyze similes and deduce meaning by considering what qualities of a person are being described.

Interdisciplinary Topics: This lesson reinforces Language Arts content on similes, metaphors and figurative language.

Level: This lesson works well in Spanish 1, when the verb ser is first introduced. However, it may also be used in higher levels if you are focusing on creative writing and figurative language. It may be made more advanced by requiring students to explain the similes in the TL (summarizing) or by having them do a follow-up assignment of writing a song of their own comparing a loved one to other items as this song does.
