Do you have emergency sub plans on hand for October or November? Are you stressed about coming up with different activities for every level you teach or having something on hand a non-Spanish-speaking sub can do? Check out these questions for students to answer while they watch the movie Coco!
This Spanish sub plan will not only save the day because it is print-and-go, but the animated movie will also teach your students about some of the customs of el Día de Muertos. Coco works well for a family unit, too. The questions in Spanish and English will keep your students engaged throughout the entire PG-rated movie.
Disney has this to say about the 1hr 45m movie: “Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector, and together, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.”
