Our YL2 class celebrated Halloween by learning all about Halloween house decorations in the United States. We viewed several images of the scariest Halloween house decorations. We learned several new vocabulary words. The students then took large pieces of drawing paper and, with partners, drew their own houses and decorated them to make them the scariest. They labeled the house decorations with the vocabulary they learned in class. The students then presented their drawings to the rest of the group and explained their decorations, providing another opportunity for them to use the new vocabulary.

The students also read a play about bones and body parts.  They split into two groups and rehearsed the play, coming up with their own ideas on how to act it out. I was very impressed with the actions they added to the play and their teamwork. Below are some pictures of the kids reading their play.
