Do you have emergency sub plans on hand? 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 fantastic movie Under the Same Moon!
This Spanish sub plan will not only save the day because it is print-and-go, but the questions in Spanish and English will keep your students engaged throughout the entire PG-13 movie. There are questions for students to answer before, during, and after the movie.
The 1hr 50m movie “tells the parallel stories of nine-year-old Carlitos and his mother, Rosario. In the hopes of providing a better life for her son, Rosario works illegally in the U.S. while her mother cares for Carlitos back in Mexico. Unexpected circumstances drive both Rosario and Carlitos to embark on their own journeys in a desperate attempt to reunite. Along the way, mother and son face challenges and obstacles but never lose hope that they will one day be together again.” — Fox Searchlight
