Get ready for Hallowe’en

I’ll make this the last post in my Halloween trilogy. It’s a repost from 2013 and worth it because it has a good message. 

What I like about this clip is that it teaches whoever is watching it that you cannot believe everything on the internet! Love that thought. It also teaches the viewer not to worry about that but to just find the work around and if you are providing information for internet readers and viewers, to provide something authentic and workable. For that reason , the clip is well worthwhile watching as a reminder to provide quality internet content and to just move on if you find dud information. Not even bother about it. These little Hallowe’en glow jars are simple and easy to make and maybe someone who is good at chemistry can work out why the other ones didn’t work. Younger children would need to be supervised as they made these glow jars but they are a fun thing to do for Hallowe’en or any other festive occasion or that matter. To build on this in class or at home there are plenty of Hallowe’en resources on the Teaching Ideas site which encompass multiple teaching and learning modes.

Halloween Science

If you like to mark the occasion of Halloween with something a bit different, then this video shows some interesting little things to do which allow you to combine science with Halloween events. Making things glow tends to be something which attracts attention and creates curiosity.

Got my Hallowe’en show on the road

Hallowe'en desktop I set up my desktop with suitable Hallowe’en images with text. It became a teaching resource today. Bottom right is the vocabulary image of the words we learnt. When I enlarged it there were two blank sections where I could write with the electronic pen. On one side I had details of the little task I wanted them to accomplish on their iPad. On the other side I had some other Hallowe’en vocabulary like how to say trick or treat in French (farce ou friandises). It meant the whole screen real estate was being used to good purpose. We looked and listened to a couple of little Hallowe’en French songs which had captions and a lot of vocabulary my Year 8s now know. They could follow along. We talked about Hallowe’en traditions in France and other countries and so , as we went along, they were becoming more interested and more absorbed. They just started learning and knowing the words. I shall be able to put these vocabulary words on our language learning site which will increase their anytime, anywhere learning based on what we have done in class. We are now making and labelling a little Hallowe’en montage which was helping them learn  to spell the words but which interested them because they liked all the Hallowe’en things we were doing. I structure a lesson to include images, my teaching from the front, videos, vocabulary and then some written work. With technology you can cover a lot of ground that way and supply extra learning which students can follow up out of class.

Are you ready for Hallowe’en?

Are you ready for Hallowe’en?

So , are you ready? Doesn’t matter if you are not because I’ll point you to some quick resources. I got the image from Room Mom 101. You’ll find a wealth of good ideas there and not just for Hallowe’en. Teacher Vision has spoiled you for choice with classroom printables, also suitable for whiteboard use ,and the site has kindly divided them into topics and subject related lists. I have then included the video because origami bats in black paper would be surely what everyone would want for Hallowe’en. The video goes slowly enough for you to follow as the presenter makes it.
