*Here is the 2018 Navidad Commercial Madness bracket and supplementary activities!*

Announcing the 2018 edition of Navidad Commercial Madness!! This post contains the new 2018 bracket along with supplementary activities. The activities document has links to Kahoot, Edpuzzle, and ways to make each commercial comprehensible. I have also included links to my Google folder of the downloaded commercials, the Youtube playlist, and bulletin board materials to make your own bracket.

You can follow along the Bracket Madness on Twitter. Share your results using the hashtag #navidadmadness . I can’t wait to see how these commercials do in your classes; there will be some tough battles.

Navidad Madness 2018 bulletin board (I am going to cut these out and make a bracket on my board)

I was completely flattered as to how many people asked me if I was going to do this again. I was also humbled to read how many people used the Navidad Madness last year. I was thinking of selling it this year on Teachers Pay Teachers but I decided not to. You get all of this for free!! I hope you have as much fun with it as I do.

If you did not do last year’s bracket, here it is. There were some really good commercials last year too. The post also has a basic outline of how I do the commercials each class.

*My thanks to Nancy Kattoula for proofreading the activities*

Gracias por tu generosidad!

Thank you so much for doing this and letting us use it for free. I appreciate it so much! You saved me tons of time and money also. Mil gracias!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for being so generous with it. I used this last year, and we loved it. I can’t wait to use the 2018 bracket.

Your work and generosity definitely don’t go unnoticed. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this again!

¡Excelente! Gracias por compartir 🙂

¡Eres muy generoso! ¡Gracias!

Thank you so much! It will be my first time doing this, so I greatly appreciate all your hard work and support. Looking forward to it! Yay!

Thank you so much for sharing! I can tell that you put a lot of time and work into these activities, and your generosity is greatly appreciated.

You are amazing!!! Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for allowing all of us to use your amazing collection! You are very generous and the work you have done is top notch! I can’t wait to share with my colleagues this year!

Awesome!!! Thank you for such a comprehensive resource!! Is there a timeframe on the bracket? Is it weekly?

I usually do 2 commercials per class though sometimes I have to do 4 commercials in one class to be sure that we complete the entire bracket before Christmas vacation

Dustin — I love the idea of including this activity in my classes this year! Thank you for sharing so generously. I do have a few questions… I see that some of these commercials are from previous years. How did you choose which ones to include?

Also, your supplemental activities look really good. I see in previous years you have had a transcript of the texts of each commercial, but not this year. Do you feel it wasn’t as effective to review the transcript before watching the commercials?

Gracias.

I like to include commercials that are longer than 30 seconds so when researching which ones to include, I just search for Navidad anuncio on Youtube and see which ones come up. I also search for some company ones like Repsol. When I put the activities together, unfortunately many of the 2018 commercials aren’t out yet. If the commercial is long and has a lot of dialogue, I just have the transcript. If I can make an activity out of the transcript, then I did that. I prefer to review the transcript activity first then watch the commercial.

Thank you for your generosity. I used it with my classes last year and we loved it! Looking forward to using it again this year.

[…] you seen Dustin’s Christmas commercial bracket in Spanish AND French?! I did this last year, and my students loved […]

Muchas gracias, Dustin! The kids love this!!!

Thank you– would this work for Level 2?

Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.

I am so freaking excited!! (Can I say that?) I’ve been checking back every few days since the start of November! THANK YOU!!! I loved this last year!!

Thank you so much for this amazing activity. It’s so generous of you to provide it for free, and I can’t wait to do it. The written story of Anuncio 5 had one error at the end I wanted to mention, I think “querer” was the verb but it’s “creer.” Since this changes the meaning I wanted to let you know. So it would be: “creeme que hay demasiadas cosas cada día…” I also updated the Anuncio 5 story to be present tense only, so that my Spanish 1 students can understand it a little easier. I’m happy to share by email if you would like to include it as an option for people. Thanks again!!

¡Muchísimas GRACIAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much! I know that must have been a lot of work to put together, but your fellow teacher friends appreciate the time it took to create and that you are generous enough to share.

Thank you so much for this activities.

Mil gracias! This is AWESOME!!!!!

Muchisimas gracias! My students were already asking if we were going to do this again. They will be so thrilled! 🙂

You are the BEST! My students have been asking about this for a month already- definitely a hit last year!

¡Mil gracias por compartir tu trabajo con nosotros! ¡Muy agradecida!

Tu eres increíble por compartir este trabajo tan maravilloso. Muchas gracias por tu generosidad.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for your willingness to share it with all of us!

One question – do you tally the votes and update the bracket for individual classes or for all of your classes combined?

¡Gracias!

I do it for all of my classes combined but I have heard of teachers doing one for each individual class

¡Mil gracias por compartir esta actividad! Mis estudiantes y yo siempre disfrutamos.

[…] response for this year’s Navidad Madness and Noël Madness has been extremely overwhelming. There have been over 6,000 downloads and […]

I can’t wait to use this, starting tomorrow for sure! Making sure I start off correctly, I total the votes for all of my classes? Or do we keep a bracket for each class?

You can do it either way: one whole bracket for all your classes or one bracket for each class.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! My students loved this last year and I can’t wait to do this new set of commercials with a new group!

This is fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing all your hard work. I’m really excited to try this with my students this year!

¡Eres lo máximo! Thank you so much for sharing. My students truly enjoy this activity.

Thank you so much for sharing! My students are loving this activity!

Thank you so much! To share it for free is a true gift!

Muchisimas gracias! es un recurso excelente y a los chicos les encanta! gracias por compartirlo gratis!!!!
