If you have enjoyed any of my other Halloween stories in French, you'll know this will not disappoint. In this play, the boy who loves Halloween is back with a new problem. He wants to go to the costume party with his friends, but he doesn't have any money to buy a costume. How will he make it to the party? He thinks all is lost until he finds a magic lamp and decides to give the lamp a rub....et voilà! Problem solved? Not quite so quick, but you'll find out soon enough once you get reading!

This novice level play is full of pleasant repetition, written to be comprehensible but also has a separate vocabulary list of difficult words you can provide learners. It also comes with a series of written activities, starting with easy and working it's way up in difficulty. Finally, you'll have access to a fun game to play with your students...all you'll need is a projector and white boards or just paper works, too! The workbook questions can also be made into game format if you so choose to do so! The game I provide is a "put the words in order" game. It's meant to get you started, however, you can add as many more questions to it from the work packet that you'd like.
I'll be using this play for at least two week's worth of lessons with my 8th graders. It's their first full year of French, however, they had Exploratory Language with me last year so they are ready for this. I think this is perfect for French I and II and even III for a little review. Along with reading/acting out the play in small groups and doing the workbook, we will play games like charades, draw what you hear, etc. I will also make the workbook questions into a fun competition for points so they are more motivated to write.
