Do you always use the same Halloween lessons, crafts, and warm ups in your English class?
Why not try something new this year?
Here are seven ideas that you can adapt and make your own depending on the level, age, and needs of your English monsters.
- Check out 78 Halloween Journal Prompts. If your students are blogging for Halloween, this list might come in handy. Please let us know if you need comments for your kids! The staff at ESL-Library would be happy to visit your Halloween blogs. (We don't bite.)
- Have a Trick-or-Treating debate. Is it right or wrong for kids to go door to door asking strangers for candy? Assign each half of the class a position (for or against).
- Make a list of Halloween Safety Tips, or watch this film together and discuss what went wrong with the little witch's costume.
- Introduce your students to Michael Jackson's, Thriller. Lyrics here.
- Read and discuss some short scary stories! Put the students in groups and have each one retell a story in their own words.
- Try the Smashing Pumpkins Fill-In-the-Blank from The New York Times.
- Tell your class to email you photos of themselves. Zombify your students and have the kids guess which zombie is which!
