It's that time of year. Students are restless and excited for the holiday season, and teachers are getting tired and looking forward to the holiday break. One of the best things you can do in your classroom at this time of year is introduce something new, that shakes up your classroom and gets your students excited. Why not try out the song warm-up procedure?
With the beautiful new song "Recuérdame" from the movie Coco by Carlos Rivera, also sung by Miguel and Natalia Lafourcade, this song warm-up procedure will have your students singing along in no time, and will even give them some practice with the future tense!

This beautiful tune is timely and goes along with Pixar's new film, Coco. This beautiful film highlights Mexican culture, and features many famous actors such as Gael García Bernal. Another beautiful bilingual rendition of the song features Natalia Lafourcade, a favorite artist of my students. This video would also be great to show and analyze in your classroom.
My students absolutely love the song warm-up procedure and the beauty of this gorgeous song. I hope your students enjoy it too, and the song brings light and life to your classroom this holiday season!

My name is Katherine Lupton and I am an International Baccalaureate Spanish teacher at Baltimore City College High School, a public school in Baltimore, MD. As a student of the public school system myself, I am an advocate for quality education in public schools and work to assure all of my students have access to opportunities to succeed. This website represents a collection of my favorite lesson plans, service learning projects, and travel stories. I hope it will service as a resource for other Spanish teachers around the world.
