Wow it’s been a while! I’ve busy with ballet and social obligations (and, who I am I kidding, Netflix). Over summer vacation I started a monthly English board, so I want to share it here.
I’d been hoping to make an English board for a while, but I wasn’t sure where to put it or who to ask. I noticed that our school librarian pins a lot of newspaper clippings in the hallway in the front of the library, so I asked her if I could do something there. She said she has trouble filling all that space anyway and was excited to let me help!
Behold, my English Wall, Halloween edition!
For the News section, I thought it’d be fun to do interviews with 2 new ALTs who recently moved to Nakatsu. I included a some vocab words to the side of each interview to help students out with words and phrases they might not know.
I also included a few spooky YouTube music recommendations!
I love Halloween, so I wanted this month’s board to be interactive. I made a word-matching game; I got the idea from another English board post. I laminated and cut the images and vocab words, then hot-glued velcro to the parts so that students can attach them. I’ve had to do some touch-ups in the last couple weeks because it started falling apart. Next time I do this, I’ll use smaller pieces of velcro so the words are easier to pull on and off.
