Have you ever had an AH HA moment?! My students were singing “Let It Go!” and I realized…”hey this is a teachable moment?!” I decided to come up with a list of ways to use this movie in your speech sessions!
- There are some vocabulary concepts our students may not know in the movie! Just use the song “Let it go.” You can give them the lyrics or show them a sing a long version on You Tube. There are tons of words to teach such as: isolation, distance, limits, rage, and crystallizes. They can use the context clues of the movie to figure it out!
- Categorization: can they think of all the frozen/cold concepts used in the movie (i.e. ice, storm, snowman).
- Sequencing: can your students retell the movie to you?!
- What is the main idea of the movie? Characters? Setting? Problem? Solution?
- What was the cause of the winter? What was the effect?
- What do you predict Frozen 2 will be about?!
- Why is it funny that Olaf wants summer? You can show them the You Tube video of “In Summer.”
- Why was it surprising that Ana chose Elsa over a boy at the end?
- Verb tenses
- Articulation — pull out words from the movie with your student's target sound!
- WH questions
- Compare/contrast Ana/Elsa, winter/summer, etc.
- and so much more!!
