La Bamba

We just finished watching the movie La Bamba in Spanish 2, which my students liked a lot.  We watched it in English with Spanish subtitles.  To make the film add to language acquisition and to not have it just be “watching a movie” we did several activities with it.  I did some of these activities as stations.

First, we read a summary of the movie and did a cloze activity with it.  While reading it in class, you could even have someone write a simple true/false quiz.

Second, we listened to the song La Bamba and did some vocabulary with it.

Third, we did a sequence activity.  I printed out very large lyrics and gave each student a part of the song.  As I played the song, they lined themselves up in order.  I gave them two tries.

HERE ARE THE LYRICS

I created this screen shot video:
