Pumpkin pie was definitely not a hit on Oct. 31. Students who normally eat EVERYTHING ran to the trash can to spit it out.
Pumpkin seeds were OK, but not overwhelmingly approved of.
We had a small party to teach some culture and share a bit of candy. And we learned shapes to draw faces on pumpkins.
A week before Halloween, we had a preview. Students learned about masks and about trick-or-treating, about jack-o’-lanterns, and about how to keep your porch light off if you don’t want to give candy.
They were so funny with those masks. They already love to take selfies, but they really went to town with masks and moustaches.
How strange this must seem to have people you don’t know coming to your door in strange outfits, expecting candy when they knock.
I wonder how much they know about Christmas and our secular tradition of bringing a tree into the house. Seems kind of silly out of context…
