Well, I have come up with 5 Halloween hacks that you can effortlessly bring to your secondary classroom or lessons that your students will thoroughly enjoy!
These gel clings are a fantastic way to decorate your classroom windows or even white boards, as they are just so easy: you just peel and stick to any shiny surface! They are really tacky and stay put, plus they can be used year after year. Effortless and effective decoration!
Another way to easily decorate your classroom or personal resources, is to get hold of some Halloween banners or washi tape! As both can be removed easily without causing damage, they can literally be used anywhere! You can put them on your whiteboard, the edges of your desks, on your computer, around your pencils etc - the list goes on! An easy and effective way to add some Halloween vibes to your classroom!
If you don't have your own classroom, then you can still add some Halloween cheer in your stationery kit. For example, you could have a small set of pencils and erasers that are themed for different seasons or holidays!
I don't care what anyone says about secondary students being too old for stickers - in my 10 years experience in the classroom, I've yet to meet any teens who don't enjoy earning a reward sticker on their work! Some might act more cool about it than others, but deep down you know they love it! So why not reward your students's work with Halloween themed stickers this season?
If you are looking for some fun activities that are suitable for secondary students that don't require any preparation, then you might want to check these resources out!
I have created some Halloween quote colouring pages and thank you cards that are lovely and relaxing to colour in! What's more, students can then use them as either decoration or as thank you cards for family and friends. I also have a selection of themed printable activities and a zombie tutorial on Photoshop that teenagers really love! Click on the images below to see more:
