Survival quest: Zombie Attack

Ok... I told you I love October. Since I started my German classes, it is more difficult to keep track specific activities, in anycase here you are: A Zombie Attack worksheet. Still working on the procedure sheet and a sample sheet. Damn it! Those kind of documents take a while, specially because this is a mixture of activities where you can find a modified version of a popular game in Ecuador called "Stop the hand".
The pic of the zombie lady bellow is from a photoshot done in 2013. If you want to see more pics of the photoshot (Rotten Queens Ibarra 2013) here is the link.

The comic in the worksheet is a popular one adapted for didactic use, I had to censore the f... word lol.
Lesson Focus: Lexis and Writing 

If possible, I´ll update the post so the information of how to use this worksheet is even more handy. Thanx for reading.

October... my favorite month!!!!

This month will be great indeed!!! I am allowed to have 6 social club activities around Halloween, here are the activities I was thinking of:
- Masters of Horror
Open discussion about reading habits, interesting facts and famous quotes by horror masters (Poe, Lovecraft, among others).
Lesson Focus: Lexis & Speaking.
- Gothic Martha Stewart
It is about time to be as creative as we can! Let's work on an awesome halloween decoration ourselves. 
Lesson Focus: Lexis & Speaking.
- Freaky Friday
What would happen if the life you have is not the one you want? There are million of possibilities, what life would you have chosen instead of yours? Whether you are happy with what you have or not, this one-of-a-lifetime experience will shake you to the bone.
Lesson Focus: Grammar & Writing
- The Witching Hour
In this lesson we will learn more about our magical legacy. Interesting magical customs around the world that even today are followed. A night of spells, finding our roots. 
Lesson Focus: Listening & Writing
- Survival Quest "Zombie Attack"
If the zombie apocalypse was a fact... would you be prepared? In this lesson we will learn useful tips to survive and we will be able to test them.
Lesson Focus: Functional Language &  Speaking
- Welcome to Hogwarts
A two-hour lesson where students will have the closest Harry Potter experience ever (unless they go to Orlando... I cannot fight that lol). We will chose students' houses, there will be the three wizard tourniment, we will look for the 7 Horrorcruxes... 
If you have any other suggestion, let me know. I'm still planning this one.

Internet and Memes :3

This social club was done last Wednesday. Quite crowded... but awesome! :D check my students' profiles... I'll create a worksheet as soon as I have my laptop back, it would be great to have these pieces in a proper frame where the info is better kept.

In this class the focus was Lexis & Speaking.
