I’m teaching the weather and seasons soon and am on the lookout for authentic resources for this topic. I’ve found a lot of teacher made songs, but not too many from the target culture. Here’s what I’ve found so far…
This first one is by Los Pimpollos – a Peruvian children’s show. They’re cute- puppets, similar to Plaza Sésamo.
Here is the cloze activity for Las Cuatro Estaciones.
This one is by Coca- Cola – It’s the song Tomorrow, but in Spanish.
Here are a few videos I found from Despierta América’s weather segment.
These are a little fast – but read this post from the Musicuentos blog to learn why it is SO, SO important to expose our novice learners to authentic audio- they’ll thank you (and their teachers too!) in a few years when they’re in the higher levels.
How would you use these authentic audio clips with novice students???
