-Telling my students, “Just like we say that cats say ‘meow’ and dogs say ‘bow wow,’ in English, we say that ghosts say ‘boo!’”—and hearing a tiny chorus of voices behind me go “Boo! Boo! Boo!” as they tried out the word for themselves.
-Wearing a witch hat and having several students tell me sincerely that I looked pretty with it on (Korean fashion???).
-Watching girls fight over the Halloween stickers my mom sent from the dollar store. I let each girl choose a sticker, but at the end of every class I was swarmed by girls who wanted to exchange their sticker for a different design after seeing their friends.’
-Having some confused students say trick or treat and then give me candy when I saw them in the hall.-Watching the stickers reappear this week on cell phones, pencil cases, girls' faces, and in the center of their uniforms' tie.
