Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been asked to design a Halloween ESL lesson for 3rd and 4th graders at a some local Japanese elementary schools. The classes will be about 50 minutes long and each class will have about 100 students. Being 3rd and 4th graders (most) of the students don't speak any English, but I can speak Japanese to them.
Any ideas what kind of activities I can do with such a large group of small kids?
Some things I thought of:
1) "Color by numbers" Halloween picture using English.
2) Some kind of very controlled trick or treat.
3) Showing the Charlie Brown Halloween TV special. The problem is no Japanese version of this exists so I'd have to subtitle it myself and I'm not so confident that 3rd and 4th graders can read fast enough to keep up.
