Halloween is one of Reese’s favorite Holidays and since this is our first Halloween homeschooling, I wanted to make it fun. With a little help from Pinterest, I’m here to share a few Halloween homeschool ideas and ways we plan to celebrate Halloween all month long.
1. Reading – Edgar Allan Poe I fell in love with creepy stories from Edgar Allan Poe as a kid so I’m looking forward to introducing Reese to The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, and The Pit and the Pendulum.
2. Writing – Halloween Themed Writing Prompts Reese is not big on writing, as a matter of fact, she hates it. I discovered if I had her write in small bursts she did much better so, we live by writing prompts. I came ...
3. Math – Spooky Word Problems I ordered this Halloween themed math activity kit that tackles word problems in a way that I’m sure will keep her attention.

5. Science – Outschool: Test Your Halloween Candy In this class, the students will learn the vocabulary terms: acid, base, alkaline, pH, pH scale. The students will participate in developing a working hypothesis for the outcome of this lab.
6. Physical Education – Virtual 5k Dress up, be spooky and run, walk or jog your 5k anywhere on Halloween at your own pace during this Trick or Feet 5k Virtual run. You’ll even earn a fun medal.
7. Coding – Halloween Coding With Tynker Tynker enables kids to learn computer programming in a fun and imaginative way. Kids learn on their own as they earn badges by completing game-like lessons.
8. Spanish – Disney’s Coco with Subtitles A quick search on Netflix and I was able to find the Spanish version. Pop some popcorn, turn on the subtitles and in one evening you can knock out a Spanish lesson and get a quick lesson on Mexican culture.
9. Life Skill – Sewing A Trick-or-Treat Bag Not only is sewing an important life skill, but it’s also a fun way to brush up on basic math skills like addition, subtraction, and division and learn new skills like fractions and using measurements.
