on October 29, 2010

Activity 1: Halloween is here! This is a greeting card for all my students. Open it if you dare!

Activity 2: This is a Presentation about Halloween created by our American assistant Brooke.

Activity 3: Read one of the best scary stories written by students in the third ESO:

A TERRIBLE NIGHT by José Antonio Cárdenas

This story happened fifty years ago when a family was having dinner. The father came from his job (he was a policeman) and he had a present for his children. The present was a statue made in India. The father said to them: “Jack, Julie, this is for you, I saw it in the street.” The children put it in a fcupboard because they didn’t like it.
When it was night, the family went to bed, and they thought  that the day had been normal… This was a mistake.

At twelve o’clock, the statue’s eyes began to shine and it began to ascend on the air. It went towards Jake’s bedroom. He got up because he heard a noise. Then, he felt a something weird  behind him.
Before he could see it, the statue cut his head off with its arm. The blood splashed all the bedroom.
After this murder, the statue went to Julie’s bedroom. It broke the door with its hand and it threw a knife to Julie’s head. She died immediately.

 The parents were sleeping and they didn’t hear anything. Suddenly, the wife got up because she was thirsty. She was going to the kitchen, but she saw Julie’s corpse and Jack’s corpse. She shouted and she woke up his husband. He, scared, ran towards his wife.

When he arrived, he saw that the statue had beheaded his wife with its sword. The man, angry and scared, took his gun and he shot the statue, but it didn’t die. Finally, the statue took the man and it broke him into two parts.
The blood flooded the house.

This is the end of this story… but tonight the same could happen you same…

Activity 4: Now watch this videoclip “This is Halloween” with English subtitles from the classic film “Nightmare Before Christmas” . Sing along!

    My family celebrates the Halloween depending of the year. Normaly web do a “fiestuky” and I say Fiestuky, thats not a party. First all are in the same room, singing and dancing and eating. Later the children go to his rooms, put off the light abd tell terror history. And later, we going again with our parents and we play the trivial or something like that. But thats year I can’t celebrate, my parents went with his friends to a spa, and to eat in a travesti restaurant. Was the birthday of my mothers friends and like their are crazies… So I have to do the diner to my sister, and I can’t go with my friends cose Cosy went to Madrid and Ele don’t call me (I hate you Ele) TT.TT
    So, finally I was the last Halloween alone…
    Or maybe was a gosth with me…

    This story is very bloody and I don’t like that the status be immortal
    the status is very evil.
