I love Halloween! I loved it as a kid growing up and I love it as an adult and teacher. You can ask any of my former students and they will be able to tell you what we did on Halloween in 5th grade. I have been reading the same ghost stories for 15 years now and they still have the same affect on kids today that they did in the past. The stories are from the book Tales for the Midnight Hour by J.B Stamper. I read them when I was a kid and I still have the same book. It is a bit worn and tattered, but I think that adds to the scary stories. Each story is written in a suspenseful way that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I also add a little emphasis at the end of each story to really get the students hearts racing. I only read 2-3 stories a year, but the students remember them forever and keep asking for more. This year was no different. I am sure there will be some blog posts written about today’s events. Happy Halloween!
