"Bailando" & The Present Progressive Tense (Gerunds)
This activity goes along with the song "Bailando" by Enrique Iglesias which is readily available on YouTube and iTunes. In this activity, students listen to the song and complete the missing lyrics. They are instructed on the formation of gerunds and asked to locate 6 gerunds in the lyrics of the song. Then, they are asked to locate certain lines of the song, copy them, and manipulate them. The manipulation of the lyrics requires them to use the Present Progressive Tense. Finally students will use what they have learned to write simple sentences using the Present Progressive Tense to explain what different people are doing in the music video. The lesson also includes a short artist bio. Students will practice listening, reading, and writing in this lesson.
