My Top 3 “No Prep” Halloween Ideas

I think a few of you got total overload with the Monster Halloween Guide last week, so here are my “quick start” top 3 halloween ideas:


1. Circle of Doom

No prep, can be used with any English you want to practice!


2.  How heavy is the pumpkin?

But …. you can do it for anything in the class!

  1. Put the kids in groups.
  2. Hold up an object (halloween or otherwise)
  3. Get the kids to guess how heavy it is.
  4. Weigh it and the closet team – without going over – gets a point!

Great for practicing big numbers  and we think it’s …..

Just don’t go weighing the kids, that leads to all sorts of problems! 🙂

3. Happy Halloween Song

Even if you have only 10 minutes you can teach this song.  The kids love it!

There you go, a quick way to add some Halloween fun to even the most boring regular lesson 🙂

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!

    Hi Richard
    Iplayed some of your games in class with children and teens , and believe me they loved the games and asked me for more.
    I love your teaching methods!
    Best wishes
