Best Halloween Ideas, Songs & Lesson Plans

I know, I know it’s early, but I’ve been having requests! 🙂

Rather than simply teach Halloween vocab (which I do have here), the road I take is to use all the Monster Magic Power to teach, or re-teach, the most popular English topics.

It really helps the bright kids see how the English can be used in different situations, and helps the slower kids get a great review.  It’s also lots of fun! 🙂

So we have Halloween colours, body parts, prepositions (under, on, in etc.), “What do you want to be?“, rooms of the house etc.  which balance out with the corresponding “regular” lessons.

As you’ll notice many of these are in the new Genki English Vol. 12, which you can get on its own (with VIP discount!), or it’s actually on offer for free with the Download Pack at the moment too!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
