So we thought over what would be the perfect, everyone will enjoy prize. We got some good ideas, wine bottle, beer package set, restaurant coupons, etc.

I got my students into a spooky mood and asked some Halloween questions about where it came from or why it was celebrated. I was surprised that some students knew! Great knowledge to have and to get the conversation going! 👍
We also discussed what costumes are popular in Japan that they like to wear.

I had students ask me questions about something related to Halloween and we talked about favorite pumpkin dish, favorite horror movie, etc.
