I finally finished my Halloween plans! I think they are a good mix of culture and fun.
- First, we are going to start with the candy warm-up, and everyone will earn a lollipop.
- Then, I have written a story for El Sombrerón. It is a Guatemalan legend about a little man who seduces women until they cannot eat or sleep, and they die. I think it is a scary enough story for middle schoolers without being too graphic. I included my version at the end of this post. They have to draw the story once they are done. We are also going to watch this video, which is an animated version of the story. It is very easy to understand.
- Finally, I am going to let them take pictures of themselves and play with the PicMonkey program to change their pictures to a Day of the Dead theme.
I can’t wait to celebrate!
