Halloween Lesson Plans

Posted in efl esl worksheets, seasonal lessons


October already! Which means that it’s Halloween.

A few years ago, I made a little Halloween Pack with half a dozen lesson plans and links to some other resources. Most of the readers of this blog probably have it already.

If you haven’t got it, or you know people who’d be interested, please feel free to send them to this page where they can get some free halloween lessons plans.

I also quite like some of these printable Halloween worksheets and games.

Unlike my Halloween Pack, they’re not free. But… I think they could be very useful to a wide range of teachers.

To check them out, click here!


Also, I just finished reading Dan Ariely’s book Predictably Irrational, which is really, really interesting. It looks at the weird, irrational things we humans do; irrational yet alarmingly, uh… predictable!

What’s the connection with Halloween? I thought of it because (I’ve just finished it, and…) early on in the book he talks about an experiment he did with kids at Halloween concerning opportunity-cost and the idea of “FREE”.

And, well, I guess that, as a teacher, you’re probably interested in social psychology.

There are some especially interesting experiments he and his team did concerning cheating. Well worth a read.

Standard paperback version:

Or, the Kindle version:

Hope you’re starting to gear up for Halloween. Kids always love it and appreciate the little bit of extra effort, cool games & worksheets, and weird food.

Have fun! :grin:

      Hi, Mark

      I'm not convinced that my simple post, above, is "awesome," making your comment basically blog-spam, as far as I'm concerned. [The kind that's typically outsourced for 10c per comment to someone in the Phillipines who has set up a Google Alert for various keywords relating to your site's categories and uses an ip-masker/proxy to make it look as if the comment came (in your case) from inside the USA. Or was this drive-by all your own?]

      And using your keywords as anchor-text in the "Name" field is an insulting way to leave a comment on someone's site. Anonymity is fine. Doucheness isn't. I left it there; I mean, hey, it doesn't hurt me, right?

      I normally consign this kind of comment to the spam queue and blacklist the IP of the commenter. The only reason I haven't in this case is because I think your site contains stuff which could be useful to readers of this blog.

      And because I genuinely like these T-shirts:

      I agree so strongly with that sentiment that I might even buy one.

      Please feel free to contribute here any time you like.
