Holidays were so much fun back in elementary school. Do you remember? There were themed activities, fun art, parties, and more. This year, Halloween celebrations may look a bit different for many kids, but there are some things teachers are doing for Halloween this year to make sure kids still have a blast.
“It’s really important to our community to keep the hallmarks of the holistic learning environment going as we work remotely,” Meredith Essalat, elementary school principal and author of The Overly Honest Teacher, tells Romper. Remember all summer when you worried about kids still having the best parts of school, like community engagement and friendship and, yes, themed parties? Well teachers are working tirelessly to figure things out, and are constantly coming up with fun ideas to keep kids happy and engaged — including holidays.
