ESL Lesson Plans & Resources for Halloween

Halloween Treats for Teachers

ESL-Library has plenty of resources that you can use to teach and celebrate Halloween with your English learners. Every year, we add new ideas and activities to our library and blog. If you’ve already used our ready-made holiday lesson plans (low and high-intermediate), consider using some of the suggested resources below. Don’t forget to share our podcasts with your English learners. And, if you teach young learners, be sure to visit our kid-sister site, Sprout English. You’ll find plenty of Halloween-themed worksheets in Sprout English’s Word Bank, Color Mart, and Games Room.
