I like to make sure that the curriculum is covered rather than the holiday. If I can find activities that do both, that is great. This is one of the reasons I like this site: The Halloween Collection: https://ny.pbslearningmedia.org/collection/the-halloween-collection/#.WdPP1dHauUk. It begins with a short history of Halloween and then has a few educational videos with a Halloween theme.
As a life-long educator, I like to read about education and decided to share what I find interesting here with you. Please let me know your thoughts about the articles.
