Play in the Halloween Haunted House

Halloween or Hallowe’en is a contraction of Hallows’ Evening and is celebrated on the 31st of October every year.

Traditional activities include carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, dressing up in Halloween costumes and going trick or treating.

Halloween is a fun time for telling scary stories, watching horror films and visiting haunted attractions.

This year English Teacher Online invites Rust fanatics to play in the Halloween Haunted House created by Dippy on the XP Coin Rust Server.

What does Trick or Treat Mean?

Trick-or-treating is when children dress up and go house to house, asking for treats such as candy with the question, “Trick or treat?”

The word “trick” implies a “threat” of mischief on the homeowners if no treat is given.

What Costume Can I Wear?

There are many popular Halloween costumes such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils.

Nowadays, many younger children prefer to dress up as popular movie characters, superheroes or princesses.

What Games Can I Play?

One common game is apple bobbing in which apples float in a large basin of water and the player must use only their teeth (no hands) to remove an apple from the container.

Another traditional game involves hanging up syrup-coated scones or biscuits on strings. Players must eat the swinging treats, without using their hands, from the string.

Ghost Stories

Telling ghost stories and watching horror films are popular activities at Halloween parties. New horror films are often released just before Halloween to take advantage of the holiday and television specials with a Halloween theme are also very common.

 

So what’s your favourite Halloween activity or costume? Please share your ideas in the comment section and Happy Halloween!

Rules of Football Comprehension

Football, also known as soccer, is the world’s most popular sport. It’s important for girls and boys to start kicking a ball when they are very young as it helps with their development, and many children dream of playing at the World Cup when they grow up.

Teams

A football match is played by two teams over two 45 minute halves. Each team starts with a goalkeeper and 10 outfield players. Three substitutes are allowed for injuries or tactical changes.

Goals!

The game begins with the toss of a coin and the winning captain decides which goal to defend or to take the first kick off. All players must use their feet head or chest to play the ball. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use their hands, and only within their goal area which is marked by white lines in a box shape. The aim of the game is to score a goal, which is achieved by kicking or heading the ball into the opposition team’s goal.

Referee and Linesmen

If the ball touches or crosses the side line, it is thrown back in by the team that was not the last to touch the ball. The game is controlled by a central referee, and two linesmen. They award free kicks and penalties when rules are broken. For continual breaking of rules or for a bad foul, the player may be given a yellow card warning. Two yellow cards or a red card means that player is sent off the pitch and the team must play with less people on their side.

Winners

After 90 minutes, the team with the most goals wins. Sometimes, a game will end in a draw, 0-0 or 1-1. League teams get 1 point for a draw or 3 points for a win. In cup competitions, such as the World Cup, draws are often settled by extra time or a penalty shootout.

Reading Comprehension

Now try to answer the questions using full sentences.

1) How long is a standard game of football?

2) Why are substitutes allowed?

3) Which parts of the body can all players use to touch the ball?

4) How does the referee control a game?

5) How are red and yellow cards used?

6) What’s your favourite sport and why?

Make the Media Work for You

The media is how we communicate ideas, news and information to large audiences.

Newspapers, magazines, TV and radio programs or internet websites like English Teacher Online, are all examples of the media – a medium of communication.

So how can you make the media work for you?

How can you get lots of people to listen to your ideas?

What message do you want to tell people?

You can use the media to highlight problems, potential solutions and success stories.

The Issue

Think about all the things you like and dislike about your school campus. Make a list and describe why those things are good or not.

Focus on the things you want to improve by talking to friends using this conversation plan;

A: What do you like or dislike about the school campus?

B: I don’t like _____________________     (identify the problem)

A: Really, why do you have a problem with that?

B: Well, the main problem is ___________     (describe the problem)

A: How do you think we can solve the problem?

B: I think we should ___________    (take action or suggest solutions)

Possible Solutions

Solutions may include forming an action group, talking to the student council or writing a letter to people in power to change things.

Other creative solutions could include writing a song or short movie highlighting the problem and asking people to change their behaviour!

A: How do you think we can solve the problem?

B: I think we should ….. form an action group to (fix the problem)

write a letter to ____           asking

make an announcement       encouraging

design a poster                         explaining

* student’s own suggestion

A: Good idea, and maybe we could also

   write a song                            highlighting

make a short film                 illustrating

 

Positive Campaigns

Everyone loves a good news story so if you have no complaints with school why not just create a news article, short movie or song highlighting why you love certain parts of your school. Be specific and use lots of imagery!

Creating The Campaign

Present your ideas in class and discuss what to do next. If you need help please email: Steve@EnglishTeacherOnline.Org or leave a comment below.
