Halloween for children:poems/Хеллоуін для дітей:віршики


Here is a collection of funny Halloween poems for young learners:

Halloween, Halloween, magic night.
We are glad and very bright.
We all dance and sing and recite,
“Welcome! Welcome! Halloween night!”



Trick or treat

Trick or treat, trick or treat,
Give us something good to eat.
Give us candy, give us cake,
Give us something sweet to take.
Give us cookies, fruit and gum,
Hurry up and give us some.
You had better do it quick
Or we’ll surely play a trick.
Trick or treat, trick or treat,
Give us something good to eat.

It's Halloween

by Jack Prelutsky

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!

The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night:
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gouns we haunt the street
And knock on doors for trick or treat.
Tonight we are the king and queen,
For oh tonight it's Halloween!


Halloween Song
I was a monster the other night

And I gave everyone such a fright
It was the scariest Halloween
I've ever seen

I saw a fairy princess

In a wig and silver dress
It was the scariest Halloween
I've ever seen

There were orange pumpkins and vampire bats

There were lots of witches wearing big black hats
I saw a clown juggling and a mummy shuffling
It was the scariest Halloween I've ever seen

There were little devils dancing up and down

There were hairy spiders crawling on the ground
It was the scariest Halloween I've ever seen
It was the scariest Halloween I've ever seen 

The animated musical version of "The 5 Little Pumpkins:

Five little pumpkins
Five little pumpkins
Sitting on a gate
The first one said,
«Oh my it's getting late!»
The second one said,
«There are witches in the air!»
The third one said,
«But we don't care!»
The fourth one said,
«Let's run and run!»
The fifth one said,
«I'm ready for some fun!»
«WOOOOOOOH», went the wind,
And OUT went the light;
And the five little pumpkins
Rolled out of sight!

English is Great: Reading


There are holidays now but as John Lennon said "Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted". And I can't but agree with him. So today let's devote our time to reading. It's quite obvious that reading is a very important part for learning English.  Reading comprehension tests can help you to improve vocabulary, grammar, and logical thought ability. I've decided to talk about reading because in November we're going to have the second tour of our English contest. So why not prepare for this event?
You can learn to apply a range of techniques in order to extract from texts the information you need:
1. Skimming - reading quickly in order to find out what the text is about. Skimming can also take in features such as headings, subheadings and illustrations to obtain an overview of the subject matter.

2. Scanning - to locate specific information, making use of key words.

3. Detailed reading - reading carefully to aid understanding. When reading for information, detailed reading usually follows scanning. Some texts, such as instructions, need to be read in detail throughout.

Think about the following questions as you read:

• What is it for?
• Where is it coming from?
• Who is it aimed at?
• What can I infer that isn't explicitly stated?
• Do I believe it? 

Here are some tips for improving your reading skills:
- Practice reading every day. You should read different fields to improve your vocabulary.
- Take note all new words and learn them.
Good luck!;)

Music in our life:Katy Perry "Firework"


On October 25 Katy Perry celebrates her birthday.
So happy birthday, Katy and many thanks for your beautiful songs!
Let's sing together this optimistic song!;)
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag 
Drifting throught the wind 
Wanting to start again 

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin 
Like a house of cards 
One blow from caving in 

Do you ever feel already buried deep 
Six feet under scream 
But no one seems to hear a thing 

Do you know that tehre's still a chance for you 
Cause there's a spark in you 

You just gotta ignite the light 
And let it shine 
Just own the night 
Like the Fourth of July 

Cause baby you're a firework 
Come on show 'em what your worth 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 

Baby you're a firework 
Come on let your colors burst 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own 

You don't have to feel like a waste of space 
You're original, cannot be replaced 
If you only knew what the future holds 
After a hurricane comes a rainbow 

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed 
So you can open one that leads you to the perfect road 
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow 
And when it's time, you'll know 

You just gotta ignite the light 
And let it shine 
Just own the night 
Like the Fourth of July 

Cause baby you're a firework 
Come on show 'em what your worth 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 

Baby you're a firework 
Come on let your colors burst 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own 

Boom, boom, boom 
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
It's always been inside of you, you, you 
And now it's time to let it through 

Cause baby you're a firework 
Come on show 'em what your worth 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 

Baby you're a firework 
Come on let your colors burst 
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!" 
You're gunna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!" 

Boom, boom, boom 
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon 
Boom, boom, boom 
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Ты когда-нибудь чувствовал себя как пластиковый пакет,
Которого ветер носит из стороны в сторону?
И хочется всё начать сначала...

Ты когда-нибудь чувствовал себя так не устойчиво,
Как тонкий листок бумаги?
Как карточный домик, распадающийся от лёгкого дуновения?

Ты когда-нибудь чувствовал себя затоптанным?
Когда остаётся лишь кричать,
Но кажется, что тебя никто не слышит?

Но знаешь ли ты, что не смотря на всё это,
У тебя ещё есть шанс?
Потому что в тебе есть та искра...

Тебе просто нужно суметь разжечь из неё фейерверк
И дать ему осветить всё вокруг...
Только ему одному в ночи,
Как произошло в день провозглашения независимости США.

Припев:
Ведь, детка, ты - этот фейерверк!
Иди и покажи всем, что ты лучше!
Сделай так, чтобы все ахнули!
Однажды твой талант выстрелит!

Детка - ты и есть этот фейерверк!
Иди и покажи всем, что ты лучше!
Сделай так, чтобы все ахнули!
Ты должен всем показать это!


И не надо думать, что ты зря теряешь время,
Ты - особенный, тебя нельзя заменить!
Просто знай, что будущее за тобой!
И что после урагана появится радуга.

Может ты не понимаешь, почему сейчас все двери закрываются перед тобой,
Но ты сможешь открыть ту, за которой откроется твой истинный путь.

Это случится как удар молнии, твоё сердце вырвется,
И когда придёт твоё время - ты поймёшь это.

Тебе просто нужно разжечь из искры фейерверк
И дать ему осветить всё вокруг...
Только ему одному в ночи,
Как произошло в день провозглашения независимости США.*

Припев:
Ведь, детка, ты - этот фейерверк!
Иди и покажи всем, что ты лучше!
Сделай так, чтобы все ахнули!
Однажды твой талант выстрелит!

Детка, ты и есть этот фейерверк!
Взорвись всеми цветами!
Сделай так, чтобы они ахнули!
Ты должен всем показать это!

Бум, бум, бум...
Всегда свети, как луна, луна, луна...
Это всегда было в тебе, в тебе, в тебе...
А теперь пришло время показать это всем...


It's interesting:Madame Tussauds/Це цікаво:Музей мадам Тюссо.


Madame Tussauds (UK /təˈsɔːdz/US /tˈsz/)is a wax museum in London with branches in a number of major cities. It was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud and was formerly known as "Madame Tussaud's"; the apostrophe is no longer used.Madame Tussauds is a major tourist attraction in London, displaying waxworks of historical and royal figures, film stars, sports stars and infamous murderers.

Images of many well-known actors, musicians, scientists, politicians, singers, public figures are made of wax. Models in Madame Tussauds are always actual and very very natural.

PT minute for high school students at the English lesson/Фізкультхвилинка для старшокласників на уроці англійської мови.

Short physical exercises have to be the main part of the English lesson for young learners. They help not only to improve pupils' language skills but they are also a great fun for children. I have told you before how my young learners do PT minutes at my lessons( for more information watch my blog in February 2014: English for young learners:PT minutes).
But what about high school students? They like fun, too. But they have no interest in doing exercises with the help of rhymes. So I offered my pupils to have fun with twister game.Twister is a game of physical skill produced by Milton Bradley Company. It is played on a large plastic mat that is spread on the floor or ground. 

My pupils have a great fun while playing this lovely game;)

English with favourite movies: Winnie the Pooh.


The best way to learn English is watching movies, especially when you watch your favourite ones. Today let's watch the movie about Winnie's birthday.
Enjoy your watching;)

Happy birthday, Winnie!


October 14, 1926 Publishing house «Methuen & Co" in London published the book by Alan A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh." Today, after 88 years, it is difficult to find a person who has never heard about a pretty funny little bear and his friends.
This little bear can teach all of us a good and a little bit naive wisdom:

My pupils' project work:Friendly sun(form 1)/Проектна робота моїх учнів: Сонечко дружби(1 клас).

Form 1 Project "Friendly sun"
The first month of learning English for my first formers has passed. They have learnt a lot of interesting things. And we decided to make a friendly sun. It has got a smiling face and its rays are children's handprints with their names. 
Be good friends, my dear pupils!;)


Our school life: Project "I am a teacher"/Наше шкільне життя: Проект "Я - вчитель".

I always try to help my pupils in developing their abilities and creativity. And this Teacher's Day was a great opportunity for one of my best pupils to act as a teacher. I want to thank Elmira Farkhadova ( my 11-th former) for taking part in my project "I am a teacher". This project gives my pupils an opporunity to feel themselves as real teachers. They create their own lessons and try to find interesting ways of teaching.  
On this photo you can see Elmira teaching my 4th formers English:

Well done, Elya!;) Thanks for your good work!

Music in our life:Hello October!

Hello October Tumblr
Today is October 1, my dear friends. The second month of golden autumn. 

I can't but agree with great author's words. Every time when I think about the second autumn month I imagine parks with golden trees. Their golden and red leaves are whirling in a waltz. And I hear autumn leaves song:
