On Halloween........

My students are writing either a Halloween or Autumn poem in class this week. One of the requirements is to have some pictures to frame around their poem, kinda like a collage of images. I found this vintage Halloween card on line that has the most awesome details that I shared with the kids today which inspired a conversation on the history of Halloween in the United States and how and why it has become the second most popular holiday in the U.S. Our conversation will continue throughout the month as I also do a unit on the Salem Witch Trials in history class including the movie "The Crucible".
Yes, we celebrate Halloween in my classroom:)
