ENJOYING HALLOWEEN (activities)


This week we are going to watch some  flashcards  about costumes, Jack O´Lantern, skeletons and all these scaring things so we can practise our pronunciation and learn some songs  with Lauren Guimmell our Scottish Language Assistant.


Some ideas for our optional assignments are: 
  • Students can surf the net for some information about Halloween to write a nice project and add some photos to decorate their class.
  • They can write  a short paragraph about something they have done for Halloween in the past, for  example, what they have dressed up as or a party they have attended to.    
  • They can invent a very short story related to Halloween, for example a spooky story.  
  •  They  can draw a picture of their favourite Halloween "monsters"  and then write a short paragraph describing them.
    I am sure there will be some funny surprises on Friday :-))

    Have fun guys !
