Ghost on the Tracks A Colorado Ghost Story retold by S.E. Schlosser The train rumbled around him as he adjusted the throttle. He stretched a bit and yawned, trying to stay alert.

"Better not tell your wife about it," his friend advised. The engineer never did. You can read a longer version of this spooky folktale in Spooky Southwest by S.E.

Bear Lake Monster A Utah Ghost Story retold by S. E. Schlosser If you travel to Bear Lake in Utah on a quiet day, you just might catch a glimpse of the Bear Lake Monster. A feller I heard about spotted the monster early one evening as he was walking along the lake. Sometimes, when the monster has been quiet for a while, people start saying it is gone for good. Course, we know better than that. You can read a longer version of this spooky Utah folktale in Spooky Southwest by S.E. Middle School Boys: Behavior and Punishment Yeah... Middle School Boys are rough. I've been at a boys middle school for the past year. My co-teachers literally do nothing, most of them read books in the back of the class. I don't have a points system, didn't know I should establish one at the start. 1) The absolute #1 most important thing is to establish the culture of your class. 2) Acceptable levels of chaos. 3) Trouble makers. Most recent example that comes to mind is this class I had where my kids were supposed to draw pictures about their summer vacation. 4) Discipline. The trouble makers often don't have great English, but that's not the point. This has gone on way too long, sorry.

Here is a little history about it.

Like many other holidays, Halloween has evolved and changed throughout history. More than a thousand years ago the Christian church named November 1 All Saints Day (also called All Hallows.) Like the Celts, the Europeans of that time also believed that the spirits of the dead would visit the earth on Halloween. The tradition of Halloween was carried to America by the immigrating Europeans. These days Halloween is not usually considered a religious holiday. Happy Halloween!

Some Games I Found Online That Don't Need Technology Hail Fellow Waygookins, So today the taboo occurred, all the computers in the school were hauled away for upgrades, so I was without a computer in all my classes. Of course this is the end of the school year and I wanted to do something fun, so I needed the computer. *Side note, don't bother trying to fill all 40 mins with these games, they're mostly filler* 5 Letter Words How to: • Students call out a five-letter word, eg. - Good Words: Heart, House, Catch, Crazy, Fears, Train, Crown, Sleep, Small, Hello, Movie, Phone, Cream, Grape, Music, Water, April, Horse, Magic, Pizza A Ship Comes Loaded • Split the class into two teams. • Start like this: say to the first student "a ship comes loaded". Street Fighter Fever How to: Find and laminate 2 large pictures of your favorite Street fighter Characters • Stick the two pictures on the whiteboard. I hope these help anyone in a similar position, of course scrabble and Uno are also great ways to pass the time in Public School limbo.

Games Galore! I have large classes, many low-level students and minimal access to technology, so it took me a long time to compile a list of games to suit my classes. The following is what I've gathered over the past six months. I realise that there are likely to be several repeats in other lists posted on Waygook, but I thought I would share it anyway for the benefit of others in my situation. Cheers! Games Galore! 20 Questions – Provide a category and instruct students to inquire using yes/no questions. Pictionary Sentence Scramble – Divide the class into small groups of 3-5 students and provide each one with a set of word flashcards with various nouns and prepositions.
