Nota: My Girl

Picture 1

Like many Spanish teachers, I use music in my class.  Through El Mundo de Birch website (http://elmundodebirch.wikispaces.com/Music+Lights+the+Language+Fire!), I discovered the singing group Nota.  They won the TV show Sing-off, and they are from Puerto Rico.  They sing in Spanglish.  While many of my students look forward to songs, they really like songs that are in Spanglish especially at the beginning levels.  I used the song My Girl which many of my students knew at the beginning of the year (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5hZSmyLdR8).  I have included my cloze activity along with some quick comprehension questions that I used after the students watch the video.  I loved watching my students sing along!
