Trick-or-Treat! Halloween Resources for the Classroom

Halloween is just around the corner. As a high school teacher, I still enjoy incorporating holiday-themed activities and projects into my classes. Whether you're a grade 1 or grade 12 student, they all love holiday themed school work (although the 'big kids' might not like to admit it). I still put stickers on their work...and if they don't get one and their friend does, I hear about it. So, I will continue to use holiday projects and activities, and stickers and stamps on their work because we all like a little holiday cheer when we do something great!

Two holiday-themed activities that I both created and use with my students are a Halloween-themed career project and a Halloween news article writing activity. Both activities allow students to complete course requirements in a creative and engaging manner.

As I was perusing Pinterest, I found a few really cool bulletin board ideas. While the books that surround the zombie are more appropriate for older students, it's a great library display for any age (just change the books so it's age appropriate).

  2. College and school activities are always have charm itself. We learn new things also share our ideas. Besides this I only focus on study of students. I suggest them to have research paper writing services for better result if they face any difficulty.

  5. I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now, and I love your content and the lessons you share with your readers.Every time I read a post, I feel like I’m able to take a single, clear lesson away from it, which is why I think it’s so great.
