Halloween was never a holiday I placed a lot of importance on back in the US. But here…well, what’s cuter than preschoolers in masks? In a goal two attempt to share American culture with my students I took over the preschoolers “rest time” and read them Halloween stories and let them try on a variety of masks I brought with me.
Someone ran off with the lion mask almost immediately, but the kids were more than happy to trade off being fairies and giraffes.
And because what’s Halloween without stories about ghosts and witches, I read Scooby-Doo books to multiple groups of students. Not sure how many of the words they fully understood, but they loved the pictures of people in costumes.
I have a feeling Adare Primary School is going to want to celebrate Halloween again : )
