So tomorrow is Halloween *squeals* and tonight there will also be a full moon, which is apparently the first one on Halloween night for several years, spooky! I love Halloween and will sure be settling down with some popcorn to watch 'Hocus Pocus' later. Something I do ever year. Yep. Living in Thailand won't stop me celebrating! There are no 'Trick or Treaters' unfortunately, but luckily for me I have a bunch of giddy Kindergarten that love sweets and a bit of a scare.
I thought I would show you my Halloween lesson for my kindergarten students in Thailand.
It's a really simple lesson as I only had half an hour to teach!
I found trying to explain the story of Halloween to my Kindergarten (4-5-year-olds) quite tricky (my Thai is not THAT good). I nevertheless managed to summon the words for 'ghost, witch, wizard and haunted house' and a few other things in Thai! Go me! Being able to translate certainly helped and added to the fun!
If you're interested here is what they are...
Witch: [Mer Moss]
Wizard: [Par Moss]
Haunted House: [Ban Pee Sing]
The flashcards I used were from here:
Sparkle box is such a fantastic resource for flashcards.
For the game I simply used some tack to stick the flashcards to the whiteboard and these:

The students basically had to run, pick up the spider and hit the right flashcard then put the spider back in its' web :)
There was of course candy for the winning team.
Lots of love 'n' stuff
