    This looks great Barbara! I wish I had been a kid there as well. 🙂

    I’ve held fancy dress parties in class before to coincide with a unit from the coursebook about, well… fancy dress parties! I had students come in as cowboys, pirates, footballers and princesses (accounting for more than half of the girls!) and they described their outfits with great enthusiam. We had a fancy dress parade with awards for the best costumes and they even came up with little role-plays like the princess being kidnapped by the pirate and rescued by the cowboy! We made a huge wall display the following week using all the photos in which they recycled clothes vocab and ‘(S)he is wearing…’ extensively, not that they noticed.

    Alas, I don’t teach that grade anymore (and they use a different book now) so it won’t be so easy to find an excuse to have a similar party this year (getting official permission was difficult enough as it was).

    I love the way the parents got involved in your party as well. It all adds to the learning experience.

      Oh my goodness, David! I can just imagine the princesses on parade! I would have loved to see that 🙂

      The role plays were an inspired idea, as well.

      I’ve been impressed by my parents as well–this is the party I’ve put together where the parents improved on my original idea. I hope it’s a sign of things to come!

    I’m no fan of Halloween but I can see how great it was for the children. Such a lot of learning all dressed up as fun! Well done!

  3. Great fun! I had a Halloween party with my adult class this year and they loved it! Heading to Japan soon….can’t wait to bring this fun to our local neighborhood there!

    […] Then, Ha-chan came up to me after class to tell me that she was going to be a princess this year. She was a witch last year, and quite envious of the one princess who attended the party. (You can see the costumes in this post about last year’s party.) […]
