A Colourful Witch

Here is a witch and her black cauldron. Her skin is pink and her long hair is ginger. She is wearing a tall black hat and short black boots. Her black cloak has a yellow and green cloak pin. Her shirt is red, and under her purple skirt she is wearing grey tights.

This is yet another activity from the current Halloween project. It is fun to see that as the 31st of October draws nearer and nearer the kids are getting more and more excited. 🙂

This exercise works on the children’s knowledge of colours and clothing,  with older pupils mastery questions, using both the present simple and present continuous, are also used.

Room on the Broom

Earlier this week at the Finžgar primary school in Barcola we began to explore Halloween. We embarked on the topic with a multimedia board enhanced reading of Julia Donaldson‘s Room on the Broom.

I love it when publishers provide different ways of reading and interacting with their literature, and more importantly the children love it too.

So, we read and spoke about the book, its words and images, and then we begun with our first Halloween worksheet entitled ‘Witchy Words‘.  The younger class cut, stuck and coloured this worksheet, while the older class wrote and coloured this one.

Looking into my tea leaves, I predict that this is going to be a great Halloween. 🙂
