A big request for Halloween parties this weekend was masks to go with the “Pirates with the Coloured Beards” theme.
And there are the regular Halloween Masks to go with the Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween songs.
Plus remember the Halloween Harry Potter game part way down the Happy Halloween page!
And I’ve also done up a workbook with all 9 Halloween Lessons:
Hope that’s enough spookiness for today!
There’s also more over on the main Halloween page or feel free to share your best Halloween ideas over in the forum!
Great art work!
I wanted to share what I did with my fourth graders.
We made a list of all the different types of costumes for Halloween: they came up with sixteen different ones. Then we talked about the clothes you need to dress up as: witch, vampire, zombie, ghost, black cat, etc. (hat, long black dress, a cloak, false teeth, a white sheet, black leggings long black jumper and a mask). Then, we learn the Genkie question and answer: What do you want to be? I want to be a…. and finally I wrote different adjectives (bad, good, cute, ugly, fat, thin, mean, nice, strong, weak, fast, slow, tall and short. The game: I would ask the question: and they had to make the sentence: “I want to be a slow zombie”. I had some kids who used up to three adjective in the phrase. The thing was that once an adjective or costume name was used it could not be re used in the following sentence. This way all the words were used and they had listen really hard. it was truly a FANTASTIC lesson!
In my one to one lesson I played snap. when turning the card we would say “look there’s a…..” ; when two were the same the first to say “I want to be a WITCH” would take the pile. In a second we had to include an adjective …so the phrase would be…”I want to be a scary skeleton”. It was great fun! At first my student (8 years old) was so excited and worried that I would take the pile that she would take it and forget to say the phrase so I would say it and take it away…that made her be more concentrated on the speaking!! She loved the game!
Have a good day everyone!
