Yesterday Whitney and I decided to have a relaxed day where we combined our classes and talked about Halloween and had a fun day. For the first part of class, we shared a brief history of Halloween as a holiday and then we had a fun activity sheet that the students could work on using Halloween themed vocabulary. Towards the middle of class we headed down to the Haunted House. The lights were off as the students sat down to listen to "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allen Poe. Some of the assistant teachers had dressed up and hidden around the room before our students came down, so randomly throughout the story they'd come out. Maybe they'd just sit next to a student, maybe they'd tap one on the shoulder, and they even tried grabbing one! We talked about the story before returning to the classroom. Our final Halloween themed activity of the day was watching an episode of Scooby Doo centered around Halloween and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Before the kids left, Whitney handed out lollipops.

This morning the kindergarten students had a chance to show off their costumes in a parade and then go trick or treating around campus.
