Halloween isn' a huge holiday over here. The private schools will have a play day/dress up day but the kids don't go trick or treating out in their neighborhoods or anything.
The kindergarteners were divided into two groups and got to carve a pumpkin. They went around to the classrooms and "trick or treated", then they got to play a game in the gym. Here are some pictures.
|We did a little singing and dancing to get into the Halloween spirit.|
|Please note that Mr. Joe the MC did not have to dance or sing.|
|Each class has to memorize a book and give a "presentation" every month. Ms. Karen picks the best class and the teacher and students get a prize. My class "won" no big deal. They got erasers and I got Chapstick.|
|Matthew, Henry, Jun, Erin-Jo, Alex, Dorothy, Andy = Mercury Class|
|Mario aka Matthew|
|Angela, Sarah, Sam and Erin-Na = Earth Class|
|More singing and dancing!|
|Look at the HUGE pumpkin! :)|
|Alex digging in!|
|Please note that "Mario" aka Matthew is ON the table trying to get his hand(s) in that pumpkin!|
|The final product!|
All of these shenanigans took place between 10am-2pm. We were exhausted! We had a really good time though and I think the kids did too!
For the elementary kids we canceled the last class and had a little party. They got to play in the gym then eat snacks they bought from the 7/11 downstairs. Surprisingly they had a great time.
I took a few pictures, enjoy!
