２・３年生 英語 Halloween is coming soon!
１０月２３日（金） We don’t play bingo very often in English class but today we played a special kind of bingo, Halloween bingo. Before that, the students were told a short story about the meaning and customs of Halloween: Why do people make jack-o’-lanterns? What do children do after they put on costumes? Then we started bingo. Each student got a card with many Halloween pictures on it. Some of the English words for the pictures they already knew: black cat, moon, ghost, etc. Some words were more challenging: witch, broom, web, and some words they had never heard before like, cauldron or scarecrow (please look up these words in the dictionary if you don’t know their meanings!). A Halloween word was read out aloud in English, and if a student had the picture on their bingo card they would come to the front of the class, take a paper chip out of a plastic pumpkin, sit down and put the chip on their card. Four chips in a row was “Bingo!”. Anytime a student called “Bingo”, they would get a prize: a shiny Halloween sticker! After we had all finished, the students received one extra Halloween sticker before the end of the class.
