Dear {{ insert first_name 'default=Friends' }}, 
Can you believe that "¿Puedo ir al baño?" is 14 years old? And yet, despite basically being filmed on a whim with minimal preparation, it still manages to find new audiences every year. 
"¿Puedo ir al baño?" has been seen over 10 million times on various platforms!
To celebrate its continued success, we spent this summer putting together something truly special:

That's right! We have written a comprehensive, 5-day lesson plan for one of our most famous music videos!
We know you have questions. I'll answer some of them:
How did you turn a short video into 5 full days of lesson plans?
Easy! We made the lesson plans about so much more than just the video! Before students ever see a single second of the video, they'll go through predictive activities, readings of new stories, games, and so much more! In fact, they won't even watch the video until the end of Day 3!
For example, here's a brief snippet of a new story that we wrote for these plans:
NOTE: Does this text look too easy? We've got you covered. We've written this story at 4 different proficiency levels.
Why spend 5 days on this video?
If you've ever wondered if there was more to a music video than just clicking play, then these "Baño" plans will be perfect for you.
They chart a clear progression, comfortably moving students from simple listening and reading activities to gradually encouraging speaking and writing.

What do the plans actually teach?
These lesson plans are not about lyric memorization. 
Instead, they aim to enhance students' language acquisition, enabling them to discuss the story within the song. This foundation will equip them with the language skills necessary to discuss other narratives in the future. 
Put another way, students don't need help memorizing the lyric, «¿Por qué Carlos fue al baño?». But they do need help acquiring language so they can actually answer that question.
What level are the plans written for?
We wrote every activity in these lesson plans at four different levels. This way you can use these plans with all of your classes! So easy!
How much do the plans cost? 
They're included in the subscription! No additional fees!
How much prep work would it take to implement these plans?
Very little! We have already done the hard work for you, creating every single resource and leveling everything at four different proficiency levels. In fact, we've even added a handy tool for calculating prep times.
Each scissor represents 10 minutes of prep time in the form of printing, cutting, and organization.
Do the lesson plans include assessments?
Yes! We've released an entirely separate document with optional assessments.
And, like everything else, the assessments are written at 4 different proficiency levels!
Where can I find the plans and assessments?
Log into your Wooly account, and navigate to the Resources tab on ¿Puedo ir al baño.  
There you'll find both the lesson plans as well as the assessment document.
