E-Style Kids Classes Prepare for Halloween.

Well, it's finally starting to cool down this year. It seems like autumn has come, and before long it will be winter. At E-Style, I have been the main teacher for the kids classes. One thing that we always do at this time of the year, is start to celebrate Halloween. It's a big holiday in America for kids, but adults like to join in the fun, too.

In the kids classes, we talk about all the scary things associated with Halloween. There are black cats, owls, ghosts, vampires and of course, jack o'lanterns that are made from pumpkins.

One of the highlights of the Halloween kids classes is the Halloween TV special called It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (In Japanese, the title is スヌーピーとかぼちゃ大王). We always watch the DVD in the kids classes on the last week before Halloween. Already, many of the kids who have been in the class for more than a year are asking me every week, "Are we going to watch the Snoopy Halloween DVD today?!" I have to tell them to wait.

Well, some of my adult intermediate class students asked me about the show and the kids classes. They wanted to know what we do on Halloween. Here is a great 3 minute video of highlights from the Peanuts Cartoon special. Have a look and enjoy!
