This unit was PERFECT for homecoming week.
Song: DUELE EL CORAZON Enrique Iglesias
LYRICS “duele el corazon” ready to be cut up in chunks.
For 2 days in a row, before you use the song in class:
Play DUELE EL CORAZON as they enter. Do not talk about it. This is very important to create buy-in and to get them to hear and feel the song without judging it.
PQA: “estás enfermo? ¿qué te duele? with pictures or with students.
PQA: vas a ir a homecoming? vas a bailar mucho? has comprado zapatos nuevos? los zapatos son cómodos? te duelen los pies cuando bailas? GOLDEN QUESTION: “¿Qué prefieres: qué te duelen los pies o te duele el corazón?”
Continue day 2’s PQA
TPR and PQA: le da and se va
Students have a bag of cut up lyrics. Students listen to the song and find the chorus part 1 and part 2. When they hear the chorus part 1, hold it up. When they hear chorus part 2, hold it up.
Exit ticket: Translate with your partner “Con él te duele el corazón, conmigo te duelen los pies.”
Day 4: Friday before Homecoming!!
Students work with a partner to put all of the lyrics in order. They will probably ask to hear it twice! Let them!
Then, play this song and let them dance!!
My rules for dancing:
1. Everyone must be standing. You do not have to dance, but you have to stand.
2. Everyone must be facing the board.
3. No videotaping. What happens in Spanish class stays in Spanish class.
4. You do you! We’re not here to judge other people.
