Halloween is a holiday that many children look forward to each year. For ESOL students that are newcomers they may not have experienced Halloween in the past or celebrated it in a much different way. These students will benefit from a basic explanation of what the holiday is and different ways that it is celebrated in their community. This will help alleviate confusion that may come up otherwise. All student will benefit from learning about how Halloween practices differ around the world.
Other ESOL students have grown up in the United States and enjoy it the same way their classmates do. These student will enjoy thematic Halloween activities integrated throughout the month. I have a growing collection of ideas on a Halloween Pinterest Board.
