"Ay Vamos" por J. Balvin & The Spanish Present Tense (Nosotros Form)
These activities are meant to help students learn how to talk about what "we" do in Spanish using present tense nosotros verb forms.

These activities go along with the song "Ay Vamos" by J. Balvin, a 2015 Latin Grammy award winner for Best Urban Song. This song is readily available on YouTube and iTunes and a link to the song is referenced. These activities may be completed without the music video, so please make sure that the video is appropriate for your students before playing it.

After reviewing a brief biography of J. Balvin, students are asked to listen to the song several times and fill in the lyrics that have been removed. Then, students are given an overview of the concept of the nosotros form in the present tense and asked to complete two inductive grammar activities based on their observations of the song lyrics. Students then are asked to find some additional items within the lyrics of the song in a Lyric Scavenger Hunt activity.

Included in this download:
-Guide for Educators
-Artist Biography
-Link to the song/video on YouTube
-Clozeline Activity
-Nosotros Form Inductive Grammar Activities
-Lyric Scavenger Hunt
-Answer Keys for all objective activities
