Flip Flop Spanish Vocabulary Builder: Movie Magic
Movie Magic helps the family learn Spanish by enjoying the movies you already own at home. Listen to the audio on the Audio CDs and print any page(s) from the PDF guide on the CD-ROM.
Watch your own favorite movies at home by setting the Audio menu to Spanish, and watch the students' excited faces as their eyes light up as they understand the words authentic Spanish words uttered by their favorite characters! Many older students enjoy checking off the vocabulary they hear, and littles flail their hands in the air or even clap when they recognize a new word they just learned. They then follow up with fun and easy exercises to reinforce the vocabulary building. Mom simply prints as many sheets as she needs for the movie of choice.
Movie Magic is recommended for anyone who wants to start Spanish in an immersion type manner, to supplement other Spanish curriculum, or just wants to change things up a bit in their Spanish language journey.
Each lesson is labeled by Lesson 1-29; not because they are easier or harder lessons, but because that is the order Señora Gose taught them in her weekly classes as the students voted on the next movie.
Each lesson can stand alone, though there are a few instances where a later lesson does include words covered by an earlier movie. After lesson 16, the labels for the youngest to oldest students have changed to simple activity titles. The main idea is to practice the vocabulary, do the activities, and enjoy listening to the movie in Spanish.
If you do not have access to one of the movies, that's okay. You can skip it and come back. If you LOVE one movie and are not ready to move on, then by all means, stay on it, and continue to watch MORE in Spanish!
How it works:For example: the intro session uses Disney's Dumbo®.
- Read through the Dumbo lesson to get a feel for how to set your DVD/BD to play in Spanish, as well as how long each lesson lasted in Señora Gose's classes.
- Play the words first, repeat, and then listen for those same words in the movie.
- Have your students check them off or raise their hand when they hear one.

The main thing:
You know your child best! Change and adapt the lessons to the way that works best for your family. Listen to the words on the MP3 or CD, and then watch the movie. Be sure you SPEAK as much as possible in Spanish. Beyond that, everything is just a recommendation!
