So at last I’m posting the Halloween activities I did with my classes. They don’t celebrate in Korea so I was determined to make it something exciting.
I would have liked to have decorated more in advance and had some lead up anticipation, but because of the Seoul orientation (and an oncoming cold) it was very last minute. I actually only came up with the 3/4 lesson plans at 4am the morning before and as such I don’t think they were as into it as the 5/6’s, but hey! At least it was a break from the textbook.
I gave a powerpoint presentation all about Halloween beforehand, and then at the end of class, the English password they had to use (which is normally something they learned in the lesson to make sure everyone says at least SOMETHING in English before the end of class) was trick-or-treat! At which point they could choose a piece of candy from the pumpkin shaped bucket I picked up at the local Home Plus.
Anyway, this is grade 3. I told them to make Jack-O-Lanterns with different facial expressions and then write what their pumpkin was feeling below 🙂
