While we don’t formally celebrate Halloween in school, students begin asking and anticipating all things Halloween by October 1st. To help channel the palpable enthusiasm, schools typically have a red ribbon dress-up week of themes. As teachers, this is an added challenge to keep the focus on academics and learning. Whether the actual day of Halloween falls on a school day or not, we put together twelve spooktacular ways to release the built-up anticipation that is Halloween at school. This post is all about school-appropriate, Boo Day Halloween Activities Digital and Printable.

Similarly, simple instructions are included in the How To PDF. No tech experience is needed. Just pull up, project, and have the best Boo Day ever!
