Today was my day off, so Sue volunteered me to go to the boys' school to teach a lesson about Halloween. I was to do two 20 minute lessons, one for each of the boys' English classes. However due to the popularity of the subject and that it was Peter and Jack's DAD that was teaching, more and more people were invited. Finally, we had to change rooms to the auditorium and I was now doing 1 40 minute lesson to about 80 children. So much for preparation!
I taught them such Halloween vocabulary as:
I showed them the scariest pictures I had found on the internet.
Next, I asked the kids who would like to say "Trick or Treat" for some real American Halloween candy (Thanks again, Linda)! They were very concerned about the authenticity of the candy. I had many volunteers!
I also asked who was a good artist, and who could draw me a scary Jack-o-lantern on the board. Once again, many volunteers!
Jack and Peter were my helpers in passing out candy to all of the children.
Peter demonstrated bobbing for apples and made it look so easy, but this boy just couldn't get one!
Some of the other kids were able to get an apple quite easily.
The kids had a good time as I tromped around the room acting out what a vampire, a mummy or a zombie does. I attacked several children and I think they were a little afraid! I think they will remember me. Overall it was a fun time, and a Halloween to remember!
