After this video, they did an activity related to the characters. I hung some pictures around the class and they had to follow my instructions to paint them. For example: “Pepito, take the blue colour and paint the cowboy’s trousers”. So, all the children painted the Halloween characters together.
To finish the Halloween’s topic, they made a very scarying ghost using cardboard plates and white cardboard. It was a fantastic craft. And the day that they could bring their ghosts to home, they were dressing up as film characters! It was very funny!
Do you think they could do it or not?
Finally, they made an arts and crafts activity. They invented some new spiders using the simmetry: they folded a paper in half and drew a shape with four feet (they didn’t know they were creating a spider!). Then, when they opened the paper, they could see their strange animals and it was very funny. After that, they “built” their houses: a spiderweb. For this, they used paper plates and some wool.
The groups of 3rd and 4th and 5th and 6th did the same activities.
They both were lucky and they had the opportunity to watch one of the most famous Halloween films in English. It was the film Nightmare before Christmas by Tim Burton. They liked the movie and enjoyed singing some of the songs of it.
Thay also told some horror stories (in English, of course!) and they made an arts and crafts activity, too! They created an origami vampire!
I hope you liked this post and I promise I will write sooner.
To close this post, I attach you a Halloween song from the film that they sang all time. See you soon!
