   *grins*  Yeah they do love to take pictures of different looking folks around here.  I'm blonde haired, fair skinned (lots of freckles) and blue eyed, and shorter than some of my middle school kids.  So they love to stare at me!  Which is better than one of my other counterparts over in the northern part of the prefecture.
    He's six foot something with red hair, glasses and a beard.  The elementary school kids, and the middle school girls will occasionally cry when he talks to him.  They think he's gonna eat them or something, I believe one of them told the lead Japanese teacher of English that they just didn't know what he was going to do next!  *dramatic pose*
    Darn unpredictable, weird looking foreigners that we are!

LOL !  Yes we are a strange lot aren't we?  Cheesy

Let us know how the Halloween assignment goes.
Your wish is my command!

       Finally wrapped up the Halloween lessons about a two weeks ago, and have been working on the christmas preparations ever since!  The kids had a blast!  We trick or treated, bobbed for candy (apples here in japan are slightly bigger than a man's fist in most cases).  Played Freeze tag with paper wand-wielding Voldemorts as the it people (Had to poke a little funny at Harry Potter).  I also read them the story of Jack O'Lantern, (I had to draw the book, it was quite the undertaking, but the kids seemed to enjoy it.)

      We made paper jack o'lanterns, and masks.  The kids had a blast, since we cut out the shapes from templates I created of ; cat, bat, vampire, monster, sea monster, and a flower for the girls.  The kids brough paper bags to school, and we colored the masks, and had them cut out the eye holes in the bag and mask and glue them together.  They were running around scaring each other all day.  Popping out from behind corners and such!   Cheesy

      Managed to startle more than one teacher.  And the other kids got so excited about what we were doing in one class they all wanted to do it!  I had Halloween coming out of my ears!

Hit the post button a bit prematurely.

       I also work a different costume everyday to school!  I was a pirate one day (even drew on a moustache), a gypsy the next, a witch ( Roll Eyes ) , a zombie, a vampire, and frankenstein!  I gave the teachers a royal giggle, and nearly scared the hell out of more than one parent helper on the days I was a zombie or frankenstein.  I had the whole makeup bit going and they thought someone had beaten me!  Took awhile to calm them down.

       The kids on the whole had a blast.  Now I'm just trying to finish the Christmas/Chanukah, Kwanzaa preparations.  My co-worker and I are switching places, so he gets to teach the little sweethearts Christmas, which I suppose is alright, since he'll have a better chance of filling out the santa suit!   Grin

       The suggestions for Christmas were spot on, by the by!  I can't wait to hear how they do!  Thanks so much everyone for your help!  You helped to make Halloween, and Christmas I believe, great fun for my elementary kids!

With gratitude!

That's great!  I hope the Winter Holidays classes so as well.
