For beginning language students, this packet includes a variety of activities to help students learn key vocabulary words and phrases from the songs.
Many of the activities are based on comprehensible input methods and TPR (Total Physical Response). Suggestions are included in the teacher packet to help teachers use TPR commands and personalized questions with students to practice key vocabulary. Student activity pages are focused more on understanding the message, rather than on grammatical forms, and more on reading (input) than writing (output). Other activities ask students to reflect (in English, if necessary) on the message in a song.
The suggested activities are based on the most frequently used words in Spanish. Teachers may use the packet as a complete set of activities, or may print and use each page individually.
