Here are some activities for the song ‘He llorado’ by Juán Magán feat. Gente de Zona. Instead of handing out a packet with (mostly) cloze activities for our songs this year, I am going to try and do more with each song such as embedded readings, hands-on activities, and MovieTalk with the videos. You can read this post about creating an engaging lesson with music.
‘He llorado’ is a catchy song that contains high-frequency structures and common themes and stories in songs such as love and missing someone. I made some embedded readings, a cloze activity, and a sheet with the lyrics in Spanish and English.
Here are the activities:
Lesson Plan Structure:
Day 1: Read version A of embedded reading.
Day 2: MovieTalk part of music video (show without sound), do not show the ending! Read version B of embedded reading.
Day 3: Listen to the song. MovieTalk last part of music video.
Day 4: Read version C of embedded reading. Listen to the song and do cloze activity.
Day 5: Watch music video with sound. Read/discuss lyrics.
