When I was a little girl, I loved dressing up and going trick-or-treating with my friends. It was something I looked forward to every single year.
But today? Not so much.
In fact... I'll be completely honest. I hate Halloween! It's just gotten so....creepy!
Anyway....while Halloween is definitely my least favorite holiday - many of my students like it, so I try to include some fun stuff.
A Few of My Favorite Fall Things...
Creepy Shadows by Laura Spencer Davis (Quick warning - the first time I played this song, the sun was setting and I hadn't turned the lights on yet. SO creepy!)
Monster Dance by Jennifer Fink
Attack of the Black Cat by Jennifer Fink
Graceful Ghost Dance by Jennifer Fink
It's Halloween by Chrisanne Holm
Five Little Pumpkins by Susan Paradis
The Cat Came Back by Debbie Dee
Not Free But Still Fantastic!
The Boy Who Didn't Like Halloween by Susan Paradis (Can be played as a duet or stand alone)
Castle Escape by Daniel McFarlane
Castle Escape 2 by Daniel McFarlane (Truthfully, I haven't gotten this one yet, but if it's anything like the first, kids will LOVE it!)
Halloween Fun by Barbara Becker
The Candy Nabber by Wendy Stevens
Other Great Games and Resources
Bats and Cats Note Board Game by Susan Paradis (Free!)
Bats and Cats Rhythm Game by Susan Paradis (Free!)
FrankenFingers Worksheets by Melody Payne (I bought these YEARS ago! Always a hit with my young ones.)

And finally - don't forget to put all that Halloween candy to good use! Leila Viss's blog will show you how. (I like #3 best!)
Do YOU like Halloween? What are some of your favorite resources? I'd love for you to share with me!
