New Halloween Walk Song and Video for Children’s English Class

Children learn English (ESL, EFL) through input, and adding actions to that input makes it even easier for the students to learn. The new Halloween Walk song combines Halloween vocabulary and fun actions to get your students learning effortlessly. More below the video:

How to Teach the Song

If you have time in your class, show the video one time to your students so that they become familiar with the song and actions. Next, teach them the lyrics, and do the actions. You can have your students repeat after you, but if they are not ready yet, just simply have them do the actions and listen. Here are the lyrics:

Let’s go for a Halloween walk. (x2)
I’m not scared, no, no. (x2)
Stop! What’s that sound? A black cat?
Shh! Be very, very quiet! Safe!
(repeat with pirate and witch)

After practicing the lyrics together with your students, play the video one more time and have your students sing and do the actions the best they can! Remember, if they are young learners do not pressure them to sing if they are not ready. All students learn at their own pace. You should, however, encourage them by saying, “Let’s try singing a little bit louder. Here we go!”

I hope you find this song useful and fun for your classes. Check out more Halloween songs at www.dreamenglish.com/halloween Happy Halloween!

Topic: Halloween

Vocabulary: bat, black cat, ninja, spider, superhero, witch, pirate, snake

Question: Are you scared? Answer: No

How to teach:  You can pre-teach the vocabulary by using your own flash cards, or download and print for free these great cards at MES-English.com https://www.mes-english.com/flashcards/halloween.php

Then, look at one of the cards, for example the witch, and ask your students, “Are you scared?” The teacher can make a scared face, then relax and say, “No.” For advanced students you can teach, “I’m not scared.” Go through a few of the flashcards like this until you think the students understand.

Next teach the lyrics to the song. Have the students repeat the words after you.
Song lyrics:

Are you scared?
No, No
Are you scared?
No, No
Are you scared?
No, No

All right! Here we go!
A bat, a black cat, a ninja , a spider
Are you scared?
No!
Catch!

(repeat with a superhero, a witch, a pirate, a snake)

Next, watch the video and have your students sing along. You can repeat the song a few times to make sure the students really understand it.

Vocabulary Practice Game: Try the Tower Game with the Halloween vocabulary. You can read about the Tower Game here. The teacher can  show a bat flashcard to a student and ask, “What is it?” the student will answer, “a bat.” Next, the teacher will ask, “ Are you scared?” after the student answers, give the student the flashcard to build the tower and move onto the next students.

I hope this helps you teach the song. Happy teaching!
